Shell: Singapore energy start-ups on their perspectives and role in accelerating the energy transition
09:15 – 10:00 hrs
The global transition to a net-zero future is picking up speed. Countries and companies around the world including Shell have set net-zero emissions goals to be reached by 2050, in step with society. In the same vein, our island nation has targets in The Singapore Green Plan to achieve net-zero emissions as a country as soon as viable. But this momentum can only be sustained if we all collaborate to support society’s journey towards a lower carbon future, from governments, corporations, investors, consumers to businesses.
In particular, the inventive and entrepreneurial energy of start-ups are increasingly looked upon to help play a part within the low-carbon value chains. Hear from six local start-ups from this year’s Shell StartUp Engine Singapore cohort about their innovations and how they are supporting sustainable development for Singapore and the world.
Shell StartUp Engine (SSE) is a global innovation programme targeted at early to mid-stage Singapore-based energy start-ups. Through an accelerated six-month programme, SSE seeks to build start-ups’ capacity through knowledge sharing, mentorship, showcase opportunities and position them for success in the smart, clean energy landscape. SSE is in line with Shell’s ambition to becoming a net-zero emissions energy company by 2050 or sooner in step with society. It also aims to create lasting value for society through enterprise development. Our official programme partner is Energy Market Authority (EMA), which offers SSE start-ups a chance to secure funding post-programme. More information about SSE can be found here.
Senoko Energy: SolarShare – Singapore’s first peer-to-peer trading of renewable energy
