Royal Dutch Shell plc Brings Crowdsourcing to the Energy Markets

Royal DutchShell  (NYSE: RDS-A  )  is redefining R&D efficiency be tapping public idea generation through it's GameChanger platform. As the video below suggests, the GameChanger platform is rather "game-changing" since it basically brings the successful Kickstarter crowdsourcing model to the energy markets. In fact, the platform allows Shell to stay on top of emerging solutions and the people who are actually creating them at a time when energy efficiency is becoming the new battle cry for modern energy success.

Shell's GameChanger platform has had particular success creating ways to significantly improve oil well recovery rates and evolve the concept of a floating LNG facility, something I believe could dramatically help EU members lower reliance on Russian gas while also diminishing the need to secure U.S. gas exports as a substitute. At the end of the day, the GameChanger platform is just another example of how Shell is embracing change and modern technology to improve the company's bottom line, something that should bode well for long-term investors.

OPEC is absolutely terrified of this game-changer
Imagine a company that rents a very specific and valuable piece of machinery for $41,000… per hour (that’s almost as much as the average American makes in a year!). And Warren Buffett is so confident in this company’s can’t-live-without-it business model, he just loaded up on 8.8 million shares. An exclusive, brand-new Motley Fool report reveals the company we’re calling OPEC’s Worst Nightmare. Just click HERE to uncover the name of this industry-leading stock… and join Buffett in his quest for a veritable LANDSLIDE of profits!
