Energy supply and solutions for investor-owned, municipal and cooperative electric utilities


Investor-Owned Utilities
Investor-owned utilities can plan for profitability in a deregulated environment

In a deregulated environment, profit requires preparation. Shell Energy North America is poised to help investor-owned utilities achieve value with a portfolio of diverse network of energy supply, marketing and trading expertise, and risk management products.

We manage more than 9,500 megawatts (MW) of daily power generation, so we are capable of offering power supply to help customers respond to peak demands. As the exclusive marketer of Shell’s natural gas production in North America, we tap 1.5 billion cubic feet a day (Bcf/d).

Furthermore, Shell is a leader in development of alternative sources of energy, such as wind power, hydrogen, and biofuels.

Our marketing and trading capacities, backed by an A/A3 credit rating, make it possible to provide energy from non-equity sources at competitive prices during critical times for our customers. Risk management professionals plan and deliver sophisticated financial tools to help businesses meet their energy budget goals.
