Shell IdeaRefinery aims to increase the mix of energy startups in Singapore, by developing fledging startups that have a positive energy impact for society, or enabling established startups to explore opportunities in the energy sector. Through the programme, startups will learn about trends, gaps and opportunities in the energy sector; and create new business models to face challenges amid the global energy transition. That’s not all – finalists will also get to meet the wider investor and entrepreneur communities.
Why Shell is running IdeaRefinery
Shell Singapore aims to be a “living lab” of energy innovation for the nation. We hope to testbed and potentially commercialise digital and clean energy solutions relevant to Singapore, and the IdeaRefinery is a key programme supporting this goal.
We work with the government, academics and industry specialists, and partner with companies and organisations to help meet the world’s growing energy needs. We share ideas and expertise to help encourage innovation.
By connecting innovative energy-impact startups with our partners, the IdeaRefinery aims to help build a vibrant startup ecosystem in new energy solutions, in support of Singapore’s ambition to be a sustainable and smart nation.”
The Shell IdeaRefinery supports Singapore-based startups making an impact on the future of energy. Support comes in two types – the LAUNCH-type programme supporting early-stage deep tech startups already in the energy sector, and the upcoming PIVOT-type programme that encourages established entrepreneurs not currently in the energy sector to explore alternative applications of their solutions and technology to create a positive energy impact.
