Jeroen van der Veer, chief executive of Shell, answers back

How has the culture of Shell changed since the reserve scandals of 2004?

A: Jeroen van der Veer:

Absolutely. The unification of Royal Dutch and Shell Transport in 2005 has simplified our governance structure. Accountabilities are now absolutely clear. We have a single chief executive. We have a single board. And it is a board where there is true dialogue! So we’re in very good shape on that front.

Wind farms stalled by five-year planning delays

The fragility of the wind power business was highlighted recently when Shell pulled out of the world's biggest offshore wind farm - the London Array, off Kent - because of spiralling costs associated with planning delays.

Shell chief says all energy sources must be tapped

In February, its parent company, Royal Dutch Shell, said it would maintain a broad portfolio of renewable resources including biofuels, hydrogen, solar, wind and nuclear power. That came after company chief executive officer Jeroen van der Veer said in January that supplies of easy-to-access oil and natural gas would fail to meet global demand for such after 2015.

High prices spawn search for energy alternatives

A Royal Dutch Shell executive said there's "plenty of oil in the world," but whoever restricts supply -- read Saudi Arabia, Venezuela et al -- are in fact spurring alternatives such as wind, solar and nuclear energy and Canadian tar sands.

Shell: Crude shortfalls will boost renewables

There's "plenty of oil in the world," Shell's Scenario Team said today on a Webcast led by Global Business Environment Vice President Jeremy Bentham. "The important moment is actually not a possible peak of oil production;" it's when demand exceeds supply, which may "come well before a peak" in output.

Dawn of an energy famine

This week the shape of the global energy crisis came into its sharpest focus yet. The world needs renewable energy fast, but as BP and Shell announced record profits, they also demonstrated that they are in essence retreating from renewables, perhaps with the exception of biofuels. They intend to focus their record billions on expanding production of what remains of traditional oil and gas, plus tar sands and liquid fuels from coal - ruinous in their effect on the climate.

Letters to The Guardian: Shell ditches renewables stake

Google Images: Shell Logo

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.
