SSE in £308m wind farm deal with RWE

Yesterday's deal was a fillip for the offshore market, which took a blow this year when Shell pulled out of the biggest planned offshore wind farm, the London Array, amid spiralling costs. Dong Energy and Eon, the other partners in the London Array, found a new partner in Abu Dhabi's Masdar initiative last month.

Former Shell Exec Paddy Briggs comments on Shell’s sale of its stake in the London Array Wind Farm

By Paddy Briggs

This is important news. These two major companies would not have made this investment if they did not think that the project was viable. So Shell’s withdrawal has nothing to do with the inherent merits of the project but with their continued aversion to activities away form their core hydrocarbon business. As a shareholder I have no problem with this. As Tom Peters wisely said – STICK TO YOUR KNITTING !

What I object to, however, is the continued claims by Shell and other Oil Majors that they are genuinely interested in “Renewables”. The reality is that they have neither the time nor the skills nor the imagination to be heavily involved in Wind Energy (etc.). The number of staff, the capital investment and the revenue expenditure on Renewables is minuscule compared with the core hydrocarbon business. But the rhetoric in the corporate advertising of Shell and the rest is quite disproportionate to this reality. It really is utterly hypocritical. read more

Letters to The Guardian: Shell ditches renewables stake

Following the government’s recent re-embrace of nationalisation, and Shell’s decision to withdraw from the London Array project (Shell ditches renewables stake, May 1), how about bringing Shell’s share into public ownership, financed by an appropriate levy on Shell’s rapidly increasing profits?

In search of some wind in their sails

Shell may have been concerned by the rising price of offshore wind, but it is seriously misguided if it thinks that concentrating its efforts on extracting the remaining fossil fuels is a better bet than renewables in the medium or long term.
