Shell New Energies boss calls time on role

The vice president of Shell New Energies has announced he will step down from his role to be replaced by the firm’s global vice president of strategy. Mark Gainsborough, who has worked with Shell for 39 years, said today he would relinquish the reigns of the New Energy division. He will be succeeded by Elisabeth Brinton, who has been with Shell since 2018 and previously worked for AGL Energy in Australia and Pacific Gas and Electric in San Francisco.

Ms Brinton takes over the role in April.

Mr Gainsborough, who led the New Energies team for over three years, spent more than 15 years with Shell as a vice president. He said: “After an amazing 39 years with Shell and almost four years leading our New Energies business, I will end my Shell career later this year.

Renewable Energy Is The Future. It’s no secret that renewable energy holds the keys to our future success and potential survival. To combat global warming, we need to get away from traditional fuels like oil and coal. The final surprising statistic, however, is just how quickly renewable energy can make a difference. By 2050, renewable energy could meet up to 95% of our overall energy demands around the world. That means we could drastically reduce our global dependence on nonrenewable energy in just over 30 years. Interested in being a part of that solution?
