Absolutely awful customer service

Absolutely awful customer service. Broadband has never worked, refuse to let you cancel or refund you. Long waiting times to speak to anyone yet cant ring you when you report an issue!

Yet again disgusted with this company

Yet again disgusted with this company. I have contacted them regarding my energy bills going up and up and each month they want more and more. I live alone don’t use my oven anymore only shower twice a week wash up in the sink use my washing machine once a fortnight, I pay £110 per month and now I amin debit. They do not answer my emails and if I am ever luckily enough to speak to a agent I can’t understand them as they are mainly Indian and having hearing problems it’s very very difficult. I am aware of the situation but my neighbour uses much more energy than me and has 2 at home and visitors nearly every weekend using all his entertainment facilities. He is with British Gas and only paying £80 a month. How do you think I feel when I see what profits they have made in a few months and yet I suffer daily worrying. I might as well be dead and I’m sure when the next rise I energy comes and winter I will be I just can’t continue they are a totally disgusting and terrible company I wish I could move to someone else who cares and helps pensioners suffering I also on a debt management plan since losing my husband suddenly. I didn’t want to give them any stars I would love to give minus but you don’t give us the facility to do this. A money grabbing load of lying hypocrites a blood sucking vile company. They are ruining any sort of I should at the age of 81. read more

Absolutely useless. My 80 year old mother has been constantly chased by them for payments she has already made and threatened with being cut off – happens every month. When you try and phone customer services they don’t know what they’re doing – you have to wait over 45 minutes to get through and they usually cut you off anyway. It’s nothing short of harassment – I’ve never known such a useless company read more

Activist investor prepares to take on Shell over climate targets

: THURSDAY 12 MAY 2022

Shell is preparing for a shareholder showdown at its upcoming general meeting later this month, with activist group Follow This pushing the energy giant to commit to more stringent environmental targets.

It has warned shareholders that Shell’s current transition plans are not aligned with the Paris Agreement, and has filed a motion – resolution 21 – calling for the oil and gas major to publish targets that cover short, medium and long term emissions in both its operations and the use of its energy products. read more

Windfall tax on Energy Giants Shell and BP?

The Telegraph

Energy bosses are provoking Sunak into another ruinous tax raid

BP chief executive may live to regret calling his company a ‘cash machine’: Shell unveiled a quadrupling of profits and a bumper payout for shareholders. Chief Ben van Beurden sounded cock-a-hoop. It had been “a momentous year”, he declared.

: CHIEF CITY COMMENTATOR:

You’ve got to hand it to the bosses of Britain’s energy giants. The response of the industry’s top figures to growing calls from the Labour Party, trade unions, and eco-activists for a windfall tax has been so risible that a Conservative Government is now said to be warming to the idea, having repeatedly ruled it out. read more

Shell Energy Broadband – Don’t do it!

Shell Energy Broadband have to be the worst company I’ve ever had the mis-fortune to deal with. I was moved from the Post Office to Shell Energy and decided to leave.I have wasted approximately 2 days of my life trying to speak to customer service, retentions, complaints and then around the same merry go round… Passed from one incorrect team to another, arrogant staff who don’t give a toss. If you like poor customer service, then Shell Energy Broadband is the leaders. They may be cheap, but please be aware that if you ever need to talk to them then be prepared to waste hours on the phone trying to get through and even then, you’ll be handed off from one incorrect area to another………Just don’t do it read more

Big Oil braces for shareholder revolt over climate plans in proxy voting season

Sam Meredith@SMEREDITH19

  • Oil and gas majors on both sides of the Atlantic are scheduled to hold their annual general meetings in the coming weeks.
  • The forthcoming proxy season comes amid intensifying pressure on Big Oil to set short- and medium-term targets in line with the landmark Paris Agreement.
  • At present, not a single oil and gas major is aligned with the Paris Agreement’s goal of curbing global heating to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

LONDON — Some of the world’s largest corporate emitters face the prospect of a shareholder rebellion this month, with climate-related votes poised to spike throughout the proxy season.

Oil and gas majors on both sides of the Atlantic are scheduled to hold their annual general meetings in the coming weeks. Existing climate strategies are up for votes alongside a range of investor-led resolutions targeting emissions reductions. read more

Windfall tax on energy firms still an option

By Simon Jack: Business editor: 11 May 2022

A windfall tax on big oil and gas companies to help tackle the soaring cost of living has not been ruled out, sources close to the chancellor say.

Officials say Rishi Sunak is still open to the idea if firms do not reinvest their bumper profits in the UK.

Current policy is still based on the tax deterring investment in new oil and gas fields and green technologies.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned last week it could put future UK energy security at risk. read more
