In 2019, Shell launched a new approach to working on City Solutions globally, based out of Singapore. This “Living Lab” comprises a team with a range of expertise who have worked on projects involving areas such as renewable energy, storage, microgrids and mobility solutions. They are working together with city officials, businesses and organisations to co-create and test innovative concepts, technologies and business models in cities. The team can draw on wider expertise from across Shell to help ensure the seamless implementation and deployment of solutions. Successful solutions and models may be replicated in other cities around the world.

In Singapore, the City Solutions team has worked with the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) to understand the energy needs of the Pasir Panjang Terminal and the future Tuas Port. Together, Shell and PSA identified opportunities for carbon reduction such as switching to cleaner fuel options and the study of a near net-zero energy building. City Solutions is also working with the Changi Airport Group to collaborate on studying innovative solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of their operations.

Shell has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Energy Market Authority of Singapore (EMA) to jointly work on spurring the adoption of energy storage systems. EMA and Shell have issued a joint grant call to develop smart and clean energy solutions for Shell’s network of service stations. This would see Shell service stations using a smart energy management system that integrates the use of solar power and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) to power the stations and provide faster charging for electric vehicles (EVs).
