- In a joint venture, Shell China and Shanghai Electric are developing green hydrogen.
According to the agreement, the companies are allowed to explore carbon capture and storage facilities to reduce emissions from grey hydrogen production.
With the help of their combined expertise and resources in technology, resources, personnel, and marketing, the two firms will bring significant green hydrogen and carbon capture projects to fruition.
The Yangtze River Delta region of China’s east, where Shanghai Electric wants to operate 3000 hydrogen fuel cell trucks by 2025, is eager to tap Shell’s experience in managing and maintaining hydrogen refueling stations.
Plans for hydrogen at Shanghai Electric
Shanghai Electric is looking to tap Shell’s expertise in managing and operating hydrogen-driven vehicles and hydrogen refueling stations as it plans to operate 3000 hydrogen fuel cell trucks in the Yangtze River Delta region in the country’s eastern region by 2025.
Shanghai Electric acquired a minor stake in energy developer Shanghai Sunwise to enter the hydrogen retail sector in Shanghai two years ago. In April, Shanghai Electric opened a hydrogen fuel station in Hainan, able to provide 500 kilograms of hydrogen daily.
