Big Oil’s green makeover

Big Oil’s green makeover

By Steven Mufson: September 15, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. GMT+1

Every so often, corporations confront questions of life or death.

IBM did it in the 1990s, when its hulking mainframe computers faced the challenge of next generation PCs. A new chief executive successfully shifted IBM to services and software. Netflix did it — three times. It first played the role of disrupter, offering movie DVDs by mail and then mastering the business of online streaming. Then it changed again, generating its own content.

Now, BP, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, is aiming to ride the waves of disruption instead of being crushed under them. read more

Shell Energy has 50 vacancies in customer services…

EXTRACT FROM SCOTTISH SUN ARTICLE PUBLISHED 15 SEPT 2020

ALMOST 700,000 people have lost their jobs since the start of the pandemic, official figures reveal.

There are now 2.7million Brits claiming unemployment benefits — a leap of 120 per cent since March, when lockdown began.

The latest jobless total, announced yesterday by the Office for National Statistics, means the unemployment rate is at 4.1 per cent, up from 3.9 per cent previously.

And with five million workers still on furlough, experts are warning of more devastating losses when the scheme comes to an end next month. read more

Staggering incompetence

Staggering incompetence. They have held up a switch for 4 months already through repeating the same mistakes and not informing me of when they encounter problems as a result. They refuse to agree compensation or waive exit fees for a service they have not even provided so I am completely locked in, despite their admission the fault lies with them. read more

Trustpilot Review: Shell Energy Rubbish Broadband and Even Worse Customer Service

Rubbish Broadband and even worse customer service

I’ve been having broadband issues for the past two months, numerous phone calls and emails yet the standard response is too many devices, which I’ve proven to not be the issue by providing tests over Ethernet with only one device connected. Anyway the majority of devices are smart bulbs, smart plugs and a thermostat, leaving only a laptop and TV.

The pings spike up to 8000ms and nothing will load not even the Google homepage. Also the guaranteed speed range is 8-14Mbps yet I regularly get as low as 0.5Mbps, again they don’t see that to be an issue. Their advisors don’t know what pings are so their answer is that I need fibre when in reality they just need to fix my broadband. read more

Trustpilot review of Shell Energy: Absolute sh!t show of an organisation

Unethical, dishonest, greedy & dishonourable

Unethical (persuaded 85 year old to switch whilst shopping in Asda). Misleading (direct debit fell far short of usage & so accumulated a huge debt). Dishonest (agreed her repayment proposal & then additionally took an extra £100 by direct debit). Greedy (want to charge an exit fee). Dishonourable (blocked her move to another energy provider). Unreasonable length of time to get through to customer service. Agents pleasant & sympathetic but they have no authority.

Don’t trust! They lied to my face to get me to switch to them!

I switched to shell because they told me the standing charges were a lot less than I was initially paying and trusted I was being told the truth as it was face to face in my own gome. I never had anything to show me the rates and couldn’t access my online account for months and when I finally could I realised I was paying more than double! When I contacted them they told me as it was a face to face sign up there was nothing they could do as it was my word against their’s! So far in 8 months it cost me about £400 more than if I’d stayed with British gas so I would definitely not trust or recommend them ever! read more

Do not use Shell Broadband as your WiFi provider

Some advice for your advisors: if they take a phone call, ensure they do what they say they will do. Been pestered to pay a bill I do not even owe due to your employees’ stupidity for months now. Impossible to call you unless you want to spend over an hour on hold. Don’t bother emailing, the ‘1 day sla’ is now 2 weeks and still no response

THE worse Internet provider ever!!

Utterly diabolical customer service

Utterly diabolical customer service. Please avoid at all costs – they are cheap for a reason.

I’ve repeatedly spent hours on the phone to customer service trying to resolve poor internet speed and non-existent customer support. I’ve been charged for engineer call outs when the issue was not fixed and remained open on their systems for a further 3 weeks. I’ve been promised call backs which don’t occur. No accountability on their behalf, no authorisation in customer service to make any decisions or provide any help. read more

Switched over to shell for all utilities and broadband

Its been the worst customer service ever
they do not respond to emails, they take hours to answer a call
they did not resolve the problem of my complaint of being over charged. Dont make the same mistake as me. go elsewhere

Left hand doesn’t know what…

So far the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.

I’m trying to switch via uSwitch and now over 26 days later I’m still attempting this. Shell energy are telling uswitch I don’t have a Economy 7 meter but an Economy 10 meter instead.

However when I ring up shell energy and speak to sales (Sean) they tell me I have an Economy 7 but they cannot offer me the tariff on uSwitch directly. read more

Europe’s Big Oil Companies Are Turning Electric

Under pressure from governments and investors, industry leaders like BP and Shell are accelerating their production of cleaner energy.

By : Aug. 17, 2020, 3:00 a.m. ET

This may turn out to be the year that oil giants, especially in Europe, started looking more like electric companies.

Late last month, Royal Dutch Shell won a deal to build a vast wind farm off the coast of the Netherlands. Earlier in the year, France’s Total, which owns a battery maker, agreed to make several large investments in solar power in Spain and a wind farm off Scotland. Total also bought an electric and natural gas utility in Spain and is joining Shell and BP in expanding its electric vehicle charging business. read more

Shell looks to inflate case for generating power offshore

Shell looks to inflate case for generating power offshore

Royal Dutch Shell hopes to boost the profits it makes from offshore wind farms by using surplus electricity to produce hydrogen and to charge batteries at sea.

The oil company claims that using such technologies to store energy, as well as installing floating solar panels next to the turbines, should enable it to offer “a continuous power supply”, even when the wind isn’t blowing. read more

I think the CEO’s surname is quite…

I think the CEO’s surname is quite fitting with how this bogus company operates. Mr Crooks! How ironic. Stop chasing people for money you are not owed, making up sums and ruining peoples lives. You should be ashamed of yourselves!

SLOWEST BROADBAND SPEEDS EVER! DIAL UP IS FASTER!

We moved to shell energy with just the basic plan but their “fast broadband” is a joke! If I used a dongle or dial up it could not be any slower! It can take my laptop from 45 minutes to over an hour to load up. I thought it might be my laptop but I went and bought a new one but no difference! They sent us anew modem but again no difference, still taking up to an hour to load up on a morning! When it does load it it is constantly freezing. Apparently although it says you are getting the right speeds going in, it depends on what actually comes into our house and they might not be the same! In our case they are not! The phone rang once the other day then rang off. Then they email a couple of day later and say we tried to contact you but to no avail!!!! WHAAT! I am still waiting for them to actually contact me and sort out the issue! had I known they were the same as TALK TALK I would never have signed up with them! read more

Bloomberg: Shell Says U.K. Can Bring Forward Gasoline Car Sale Ban to 2030

Bloomberg: Shell Says U.K. Can Bring Forward Gasoline Car Sale Ban to 2030

By Rakteem Katakey: 17 July 2020, 14:49 BST

  • British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has set a 2035 deadline
  • ‘Right policy and incentives’ could push it earlier: Lynch

Royal Dutch Shell Plc expects the U.K. can end the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles in just a decade, as the nation attempts to eliminate emissions by the middle of the century.

The ban can be brought forward to 2030 with “the right policy and incentives,” Sinead Lynch, the head of oil giant Shell’s operations in Britain said on LinkedIn. That’s five years earlier than the deadline set by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in February, and also beats the 2032 date that Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said may be possible to achieve. read more

Avoid like the plague, they are taking advantage of people in lockdown

I was with the previous company before Shell took them over and had no problems with them, as soon as shell took over its been nothing but problems, for no reason my bill went from £ 75 to £92 and then 3 months later £102, i asked them to change my tariff to a cheaper one (£85) which all went through and i received confrontation. I checked the small print and there was 0 charge for changing tarriffs.
I got my bill today, not only has my bill stayed at £102 but theyve also charged me £100 for unknown “other charges and tarriff” upon looking at my bill the price p/kwh had DOUBLED in one month this has put me over £220 in arrears. And they do not want to help and say its what i owe so it must be paid even though they themselves dont know what the extra £100 charges are. It seems they are taking advantage of people being in lockdown and hiking there prices up
I have made a formal complaint to ofgem read more
