Shell WindEnergy exits Bear River wind project

The Times-Standard Posted:   07/10/2012 03:45:33 PM PDT

Shell WindEnergy Inc. announced today that the company is opting to exit the Bear River wind project that has been in the works for years.

A press release from the company states it’s withdrawing from the project due to “unfavorable market conditions and issues pertaining to the transportation logistics” of getting wind turbines into Humboldt County.

The proposed 50-megawatt project would’ve used 25 wind turbines along the ridge south of Ferndale to produce an alternative energy wind farm. Getting the wind turbines into the county would’ve involved the construction of some five miles of road, according to a previous county notice. read more

Largest wind farm rescued by state

Last year Royal Dutch Shell, one of the original partners alongside Eon and Dong Energy of Denmark, pulled out, saying it wanted to concentrate on onshore wind in the US, where the technology had a longer record and the returns were more certain. Shell has since said it plans no new investment in wind power because oil and gas projects offer better returns.

UK hopes Europe can save offshore wind farm

The London Array project has been struggling since last May when Shell, the oil company, withdrew its support, citing spiralling costs. A string of companies have cut their investments in the sector in recent months, including Shell and BP.

Green Digest

Shell has made the same decision and sold out of its wind interests. Last month the company also said it was pulling out of solar and hydrogen technologies. The oil giants have been rethinking their operations since the oil price plunged from $145 a barrel to $50.

State intervention vital if Britain is to meet its green energy targets, says former BP boss

Britain must revert to greater state control of energy markets to hit ambitious targets on renewable energy and climate change, according to the former head of BP.

Green energy is not such a breeze

One by one, the energy giants that hoisted green flags and trumpeted their conversion to renewables are ducking and diving and hiding behind the curtains. Iberdrola, a big investor in wind farms in Spain and the owner of ScottishPower, is slashing its spending on renewables by 40 per cent. Shell said recently it would no longer invest in wind turbines, preferring to focus its efforts on new biofuel technology, while BP has opted out of the UK renewables market, deeming it to be a poor bet.

Abu Dhabi has second thoughts about London Array and wind power

The London Array project, a plan to build 341 turbines with the capacity to generate 1,000 megawatts of electricity – more than that produced by most of the nuclear reactors in Britain – has been in trouble since last May, when Shell pulled out of the project, citing spiralling costs.
