    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

    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

    As the Shift to Green Energy Speeds Up, Shell’s Big Natural-Gas Bet Is at Risk

    Shell has written down the value of some of its gas assets, including its Queensland Curtis project in Australia.

    As the Shift to Green Energy Speeds Up, Shell’s Big Natural-Gas Bet Is at Risk. The fuel faces growing environmental scrutiny and competition from cleaner energy sources

    By Sarah McFarlane: March 27, 2021 5:30 am ET

    LONDON— Royal Dutch Shell PLC bet big on natural gas as the energy source of the future when it bought BG Group for $54 billion. Five years later, it appears the gas era won’t last long. 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 [email protected] 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

    Shell turns to forests and the earth to soak up its emissions

    LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell set out plans on Thursday to boost the use of nature-based carbon offsets and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, two climate solutions in their infancy but seen crucial to controlling global warming.

    Both technologies can mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions Shell and its customers cannot eliminate on the path to the group’s 2050 net zero carbon target.

    Shell wants to ramp up its use of nature-based carbon offsets, which include forestation projects, to 120 million tonnes a year by 2030, a big jump given the entire voluntary carbon offset market reached 104 million tonnes in 2019, Ecosystem Marketplace figures show. read more

    Shell says new ‘Brazil-sized’ forest would be needed to meet 1.5C climate goal

    Shell says new ‘Brazil-sized’ forest would be needed to meet 1.5C climate goal

    Shell’s new ‘Sky 1.5’ scenario has scaled up nature-based solutions, but the oil-and-gas major’s pathway is nearly identical to the Paris Agreement’s ‘well-below 2C’ goal, an analysis by Carbon Brief revealed.

    By Josh Gabbatiss, Carbon Brief: Feb. 17, 2021

    For the first time, Shell has released a “pathway” showing how the world could potentially meet the Paris Agreement’s ambitious goal of limiting global warming to 1.5C. read more

    Editorial: Big oil confronts climate change – not a minute too soon

    On Thursday, one of the world’s largest oil companies — Royal Dutch Shell — confirmed it will never again produce as much oil as it did in 2019. Peak oil production at Shell, said CEO Ben van Beurden, has come and gone.

    The week before, ExxonMobil had made a similarly telling announcement: It is spending billions on a subsidiary formed to advance technologies to reduce the company’s carbon emissions and develop new products to help its customers do the same. read more

    Shell puts electric charge into green energy future

    Shell puts electric charge into green energy future

    Emily Gosden, Energy Editor The Times

    Royal Dutch Shell plans to operate as many as 2.5 million electric vehicle charging points globally by 2030 under a new emissions-reduction strategy that will see its oil output decline.

    The Anglo-Dutch oil giant sought to flesh out its 2050 net zero emissions goal with a plan to focus on customer-facing business such as electricity sales, rather than power generation like its peers. It intends to operate half a million charging points by 2025, up from 60,000 today, and could increase this to 2.5 million by the end of the decade. read more
