Energy companies continue to collaborate with other organizations to further research. For example, Shell recently opened a mobility research center at Tsinghua University in China. According to a company press release, “This new centre will focus on developing solutions for the automotive sector, including the development of high-efficiency lubricants and additives; cleaner use of conventional fuels; and the development of alternative fuels and new energies that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Shell and Tsinghua will collaborate to develop new technologies and conduct industry studies.”
