Industry regulator Ofgem appointed Shell Energy to take on the extra customers, whom had been fearing higher energy bills this winter as a result of losing their supplier.

Outstanding credit balances, including money owed to Green’s existing and former customers will be honoured, Ofgem said in a statement today. read more

Oil giant Shell sets sights on sustainable aviation fuel take-off

Reuters: Ron Bousso: Publishing date: Sep 19, 2021  

LONDON — Royal Dutch Shell plans to start producing low-carbon jet fuel at scale by 2025, in an attempt to encourage the world’s airlines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Aviation, accounting for 3% of the world’s carbon emissions, is considered one of the toughest sectors to tackle due to a lack of alternative technologies to jet fueled-engines.

Produced from waste cooking oil, plants and animal fats, SAF could cut up to 80% of aviation emissions, Shell said.

Anglo-Dutch Shell, which aims to reduce emissions from fuels it sells to net zero by 2050, is in the midst of a large overhaul aimed at producing more low-carbon fuels such as biodiesel and SAF, as well as hydrogen. read more

Vermont sues 4 oil companies, alleges false info on climate

By Wilson Ring | AP: 14 Sept 2021 at 2:22 p.m. EDT

BURLINGTON, Vt. — Vermont on Tuesday became the latest state to sue some of the country’s top fossil fuel companies by alleging they misled the public about the impact their products have on climate change.

The suit names ExxonMobil Corporation, Shell Oil Company, Sunoco LP, CITGO Petroleum Corporation and other corporations.

“They have known for decades that the Earth’s climate has been changing because of emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, and that the fossil fuels they sell are the primary source of those emissions,” the lawsuit said. read more
