Who are Shell Energy?

Shell Energy is the new name for First Utility – the largest independent energy suppliers in the UK outside of the Big Six. The rebranding from First Utility to Shell Energy came in 2019, following the oil and gas giant’s acquisition of the supplier in 2018, as part of its New Energies division.

Shell New Energies focuses on two main areas:

  1. New fuels for transport, such as advanced biofuels and hydrogen
  2. Domestic and business energy, including electricity generation and supply.

Shell aims to make electricity a significant part of its business, and will supply 100% renewable electricity under the Shell Energy brand, alongside gas, broadband and smart home technology.
