Energy crisis lifeline: Shell announces plans for £25bn injection into UK clean power

SHELL has announced its plans to massively expand in the UK, boosting its energy security with an investment worth up to £25billion.

By ANTONY ASHKENAZ

Now Britain has received a major boost to those plans as Shell has announced that it is looking to expand its business supplying electricity to UK households.

As part of its own push towards clean energy and away from oil and gas, the UK-based energy firm plans to supply clean power to five million households and electric car drivers by 2030, up from about 1.5 million today.

According to the Telegraph, Shell is planning to invest £20billion-£25billion in the UK over the decade, with over 75 percent of that sum being invested in low carbon energy such as wind turbines and electric car charging points. read more

Extinction Rebellion activists have glued themselves to the reception desk of Shell’s London HQ.

Members of the group gained access to the building, on London’s Southbank, this afternoon and are occupying it and telling passing workers to change careers.

The protest is part of Extinction Rebellion’s “April rebellion”, which began on Saturday and has included mass roadblocks in the capital.

Speaking on a livestream from inside the building, one activist said: “We’re here to ask you to really think about what you’re doing. Do you really want to be part of this planetary destruction?” read more

    Can a ‘toxic’ business (Shell) really turn from sinner to saint?

    FROM A MAJOR ARTICLE ON TWO-THIRDS OF PAGE 8 OF THE SUNDAY TIMES BUSINESS SECTION OCT 31, 2021

    How should Shell, Glencore and British American Tobacco deal with their “toxic” legacy businesses?

    Robert Watts: Sunday October 31 2021, 12.01am, The Sunday Times

    Ben Van Beurden knew last weekend that he was facing one of the more trying weeks of his 38 years at Shell. But he still had no clue of the impending ambush being prepared by an American billionaire activist investor.

    Shell’s chief executive knew the quarterly figures for the oil and gas giant he would unveil on Thursday would be bad. Profits between July and September came in at $4.1 billion (£3 billion) — well below the $5.4 billion expected and 25 per cent down on the previous quarter. read more

    Shell on Path to Miss Own Emission Reduction Goals, Report Says

    By Laura Hurst: 22 October 2021, 07:00 BST

    Global Climate Insights study sees emissions rising by 2030
    Company says it fully intends to meet future targets

    Royal Dutch Shell Plc is on track to miss its own emission reduction targets in the coming decades, even as the company faces more stringent climate requirements from a court ruling, a new study shows.

    The energy giant is seeking to gradually reduce its carbon emissions, with the goal of achieving net-zero by 2050. Shell isn’t forecast to achieve its goals after 2022, according to the report by Global Climate Insights. read more

    Shell to supply green energy directly to home consumers

    THURSDAY, AUGUST 26, 2021 – 14:30

    Dutch oil and gas giant Shell will soon start supplying Dutch home consumers with “CO2 compensated gas” and green electricity purchased from Dutch solar and wind farms. The company already received a permit from regulator ACM to start doing so, NOS reports.

    Exactly how much green energy Shell plans to supply is not clear, but Barbara van Bergh, head of this division, told NOS that Shell wants to become a “significant” player. read more

    Shell Gets Greener, Even as Climate Advocates Say, ‘Go Faster’

    Royal Dutch Shell, though still reliant on profits from fossil fuels, is investing more in renewable energy. Critics say the changes have to come quicker.

    June 18, 2021

    Like other oil giants, Shell is under pressure to move away from climate-damaging fossil fuels, and it is recasting itself as more of a renewable energy company, looking for investments as it sidles toward a new future.

    Limejump is the type of business that catches the eye of Shell executives these days. With 80 software engineers, traders and forecasters, the company buys electricity from 675 wind farms, solar installations and other mostly renewable generators scattered across Britain, and sells it to businesses that want their energy to be green. read more

    Shell wins $2.5 billion Australian power contract with battery storage

    SYDNEY (Reuters) -Australia’s New South Wales (NSW) state said on Tuesday it has awarded a A$3.2 billion ($2.5 billion) 10-year power supply contract to Royal Dutch Shell PLC, which includes supplying battery back-up power for wind and solar energy.

    Under a deal with Edify, Shell has contracted to take 60% of the battery’s power.

    “This long-term services agreement is a model for how large energy users can access dispatchable power like battery storage, which complements renewables,” Shell Energy Chief Executive Greg Joiner said in a statement.

    Oil Majors Look to Fill Businesses’ Growing Appetite for Green Power

    By Sarah McFarlane: May 24, 2021 7:00 am ET

    Businesses are buying more renewable power, and oil majors want a piece of the action.

    European oil companies including BP PLC and Royal Dutch Shell PLC are building new wind and solar projects and striking deals to supply electricity to big corporate buyers like Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp., treading into the domain of traditional power companies.

    Oil companies say securing long-term deals to supply electricity will provide a new source of income and underpin their expansion into wind and solar power as they seek to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and prepare for a lower-carbon economy. read more

    Oil supermajors’ mega-bet on natural gas

    Oil supermajors’ mega-bet on natural gas

    Is the least grubby hydrocarbon a bridge fuel to a greener future, or a trap?

    Energy companies have no seat at the climate high table convened by President Joe Biden on April 22nd and 23rd, to which he has invited 40 other world leaders to discuss how to speed up the shift from dirty energy. From the sidelines, coal firms will scowl at efforts to curb demand in Asia and oil drillers will wince at support for electric cars. Watching particularly closely will be those companies which have bet big on natural gas. As the energy transition gathers momentum, no fuel’s future is hazier than that of the least grubby hydrocarbon. read more

    Oil And Coal Firms Guilty Of ‘Great Deception’ Through Greenwashing, Say Climate Lawyers

    Oil And Coal Firms Guilty Of ‘Great Deception’ Through Greenwashing, Say Climate Lawyers

    David Vetter: Senior Contributor Sustainability Climate research, renewables and circularity: 19 April 2021

    A team of U.K. lawyers today released what they say is new evidence showing that the world’s biggest fossil fuel companies are systematically “greenwashing” their image to make the public believe they are taking concrete steps to combat climate change. In reality, the lawyers say, the firms are committed to increasing the sale of fossil fuels, which will inevitably generate more greenhouse gas emissions. read more

    Shell to pilot faster-charging, solar-powered stations for EVs in Singapore

    Shell to pilot faster-charging, solar-powered stations for EVs in Singapore

    GAYL GOH gaylegoh@sph.com.sg Singapore: Thu, Mar 04 2021

    THREE Shell service stations in Tampines, Pasir Ris and Lakeview will soon be powered by solar energy and offer significantly faster charging services for electric vehicles (EVs). The Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Shell have jointly awarded a research grant to a consortium led by local solar company Eigen Energy, to pilot the stations by early 2022.

    The new stations will add to Shell’s network of 18 stations with EV charging services across the island. However, they will offer much shorter charging times – up to three times faster – than the 50 kilowatt rapid direct current chargers deployed at the existing stations. The latter typically provide up to an 80 per cent charge in about 30 minutes, depending on the EV model. read more

    Despite Its Pledges, Shell Funded Anti-Climate Lobbying Last Year

    Despite Its Pledges, Shell Funded Anti-Climate Lobbying Last Year

    The oil giant belonged to one group that pushed for a rule designed to preempt banks’ policies against lending for Arctic drilling and coal mining.

    Royal Dutch Shell vowed last September to reach net-zero carbon pollution in its business by 2050. The goal was vague but notable, and seemed to become more realistic when the corporation announced earlier this month that its crude oil production had peaked in 2019 and would likely never increase again. read more
