Yesterday was an important milestone for us at Everimpact. We were chosen by Shell as the winner of the New Energy Challenge.
Shell selected Everimpact’s carbon tracking technology in order to track Shell’s own carbon footprint from operations, and also to distribute it with its B2B customers to monitor and monetise their own carbon emissions’ reductions. “This year we have again been deeply impressed by the talent and innovation that the finalists have demonstrated. Every one of them is working on promising solutions for the energy transition. So much so that we have decided to potentially develop a pilot with two scale-up companies” says Geert van de Wouw, Managing Director of Shell Ventures. In the next 12 months, Everimpact will work closely with Shell to pilot its carbon tracking system to monitor Shell’s own carbon footprint from Oil & Gas Production facilities, Energy & Chemical parks, and Fleet (ships, trucks), and find reductions. At the same time, we will also look into distributing Everimpact to Shell’s customers such as cities, ports, large fleets, and industrial assets using Shell’s low carbon solutions. This is a big step taken by Shell to decarbonise the oil & gas sector, and we’re proud to be part of the solution providers helping to bring new and clean energy to life. The New Energy Challenge scouted startups and scale-ups from all over the globe and were accelerated by partner Rockstart, Get in the Ring, and Yes! Delft. From this initial screening process, 10 finalists went into 4 weeks of intensive workshops with different business units in Shell, Shell Ventures, and Shell external experts, with the ultimate goal to design the initial pilot projects and what a distribution partnership could look like. It was an intensive process and we’re happy that Everimpact was the chosen winner, helping Shell transition towards a low carbon world. Everimpact will now get the chance to execute pilots with Shell to further validate and scale our business. Everimpact x Shell collaboration, watch the video
