The Anglo-Dutch group has gone further than most peers by announcing an “ambition” last November to reduce its carbon footprint by 50 per cent by 2050… FULL FT ARTICLE read more

Shell could take on Big Six under own brand

James Booth: Sunday 25 March 2018 1:37pm 

Energy giant Shell could move to take on the “Big Six” domestic energy suppliers in the UK under its own brand.

The company confirmed that using the “Shell” brand for its new domestic supply operations was one of the options currently being examined.

Shell acquired residential energy supplier First Utility last month in a deal thought to be worth £200m.

First Utility already operates in the German household energy market under Shell’s brand via a licensing agreement signed in 2015.

First Utility, which serves around 825,000 homes in the UK, is now a subsidiary of Shell within its new energies division. read more

Shell takes on British Gas in battle to supply power to homes

The oil giant is considering using its own branding after its acquisition of energy supplier First Utility: ALAMY

Shell is considering using its own brand to challenge British Gas in the battle for domestic power customers.

After its acquisition last year of electricity and gas supplier First Utility, the oil giant is considering putting its own name over the door.

John Abbott, who runs the FTSE 100 giant’s downstream business, said: “That’s clearly an option we have. We’ll consider it.”

The move would mark an escalation in Shell’s battle to lure customers from the big six energy suppliers. read more

How to take the oil out of Shell

The Anglo-Dutch energy giant is preparing for a world where its main product is much less in demand

Despite Shell’s move towards renewable energy, oil will continue to grease its wheels for years to come: ILLUSTRATION: HAYLEY DALRYMPLE

Ben van Beurden, a three-decade veteran of the oil industry, did something that went completely against the grain. Last year the chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell traded in his diesel-guzzling car — these days he motors around the Hague in a plug-in Mercedes-Benz S500.

His switch to a hybrid vehicle encapsulates the quandary facing Britain’s largest listed company: the future may be electric, but oil is the mainstay of Shell’s £200bn empire and will continue to sustain its vast profits for years to come. read more
