Shell and Microsoft form alliance to address carbon emissions
24 September, 2020
Shell International Petroleum Company Limited and Microsoft Corporation, who have been working for three decades together, have announced a new strategic alliance to support progress towards a world with net-zero emissions.
This strategic alliance will support Shell’s ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner, in step with society and its customers. Shell’s supply of renewable energy will help Microsoft deliver on its renewable energy supply goals and its broader ambition to be carbon negative by 2050.
Shell and Microsoft have been working together on AI for three years. So far this year, 47 AI-powered proprietary applications have been deployed across Shell’s businesses. Technologies such as Real-Time Production Optimisation have already shown potential to reduce CO2 emissions in Shell’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations.
The companies are committed to accelerating their AI work together to drive efficiencies and reduce emissions.
