Shell enters Japan’s renewable energy market

Tokyo — Royal Dutch Shell has begun selling electricity procured from the wholesale market to businesses in Japan and is considering residential sales in the future.
The oil and gas company is looking into potential options in renewable energy. It acquired German home battery maker Sonnen in March and may bring that business into Japan.
Shell is also entering the Japanese market for virtual power plants, which will launch in fiscal 2021 and link various power-generating units and storage batteries to ensure a stable supply of electricity. (Nikkei)
