‘Disgusted’ Powershop customers abandon ship over Shell takeover

‘Disgusted’ Powershop customers abandon ship over Shell takeover

: November 23, 2021

When oil giant Shell announced it was buying renewable electricity provider Powershop Australia on Monday, many of its 185,000 customers instantly switched providers.

Powershop Australia launched in 2012 and had gained a reputation for being 100 per cent carbon neutral – a credential many now see as tainted by the Shell acquisition.

“I was just disgusted and amazed that they thought they could get away with that, without people caring or noticing,” former customer Kristen O’Connell told The New Daily. read more

Shell increases stake in Australia’s electricity market with Powershop takeover

Peter Hannam: Mon 22 Nov 2021 06.19 GMT Energy giant Royal Dutch Shell has expanded its presence in Australia’s electricity market, buying retailer Powershop from NZ’s Meridian Group as part of a $729m deal that may irk some customers who have tried to avoid fossil fuel companies.

A Meridian spokesperson defended the sale of the retailing arm to one of the world’s biggest fossil fuel companies, saying the company’s commitment “to do good by our customers and the planet is stronger than ever”.

“We consider this sale as a positive for both, knowing customers will get the same great service and knowing Shell Energy and its partner ICG’s vision is to significantly invest in a transition to a cleaner energy future,” the spokesperson said. “We are proud of that.” read more

Switch to London is not the only big decision for Shell

Switch to London is not the only big decision for Shell

Moving headquarters has pleased investors, but they want to see more from the oil group

Emily Gosden, Energy Editor The Times

When Ben van Beurden, Royal Dutch Shell’s chief executive, phoned Mark Rutte on Sunday afternoon to warn the Dutch prime minister that the company planned to move its headquarters from the Hague to London, he set off a political backlash in the Netherlands.

Yet the oil group’s plans, which were revealed to stock markets on Monday and will also result in Shell unifying its dual shares, moving its tax base to Britain and losing its “Royal Dutch” name, appear less divisive with investors. read more

Shell buys 51% stake in Irish floating offshore wind project

Updated / Thursday, 18 Nov 2021 15:38 Royal Dutch Shell said today it had acquired a 51% stake in an floating wind project off the west coast of Ireland aiming to develop up to 1.35 gigawatt in electricity capacity.

Shell bought the stake in the Western Star venture from Irish developer Simply Blue Group for an undisclosed sum.

Floating offshore wind technology is still in its infancy but has the potential to unlock vast power resources in deep waters.

The Western Star Project will be located at least 35km off the west coast of Co Clare and will have a total capacity of 1.35 GW, enough to power 1,145,000 homes in Ireland.

The floating technology proposed for this project will allow the turbines to be located far from shore and in waters over 100m deep. read more

Pollution experts refuse to let Science Museum feature work over Shell links

Matthew Taylor: Tue 16 Nov 2021 10.47 GMT

Two prominent scientists are refusing to allow their work to be included in the Science Museum’s collection because of the institution’s links to Shell.

Steve and Dee Allen, who have carried out some of the most important research into global plastic pollution, say the museum’s sponsorship deal with the fossil fuel company – and a subsequent “gagging clause” – meant it was no longer a credible scientific institution. read more

Brexit Britain paves way for Frexit as French admit jealousy after Shell moves to UK

BREXIT BRITAIN may have just paved the way for Frexit and added momentum to calls for France to leave the European Union after the French admitted jealousy over oil giant Shell’s major shift to the UK.

By PAUL WITHERS: 11:42, Tue, Nov 16, 2021 | UPDATED: 16:58, Tue, Nov 16, 2021 In a huge win for Brexit Britain, Royal Dutch Shell is scrapping its dual share structure and moving its head office to Britain from the Netherlands. The company is dropping “Royal Dutch” from its name – part of its identity since 1907 – to become Shell Plc. The firm has been embroiled in a row with Dutch authorities over the country’s 15 percent dividend withholding tax on some of its shares, which makes them less attractive for investors.

The new single structure with all shares under British law means none of its shares would be under this tax and will also enable the oil giant to quickly strike sale and acquisition deals.

The Dutch government responded by saying it was “unpleasantly surprised” by Shell’s decision to move its head office from The Hague to London.

The move is seen as a huge vote of confidence in the City of London following the UK’s departure from the EU, which triggered a shift in billions of euros in daily share trading from the English capital to Amsterdam. read more

Dutch government only has itself to blame for Shell move to UK

Sky’s Ian King explains why shareholders are welcoming Shell’s decision to follow Unilever and RELX in moving away from Dutch controls, confirming the end of “royal” and “Dutch” in its name.

They’re only two little words – but they are symbolic of a huge shift at one of the world’s most important companies.

If its management gets its way, following a shareholder vote, Royal Dutch Shell will become plain Shell. read more

There are no calls to break up BP’s ‘cash machine’, says Bernard Looney

Emily Gosden: Wednesday, November 03 2021, 12.01 am

BP is not facing calls to break itself up, such as those aimed at Royal Dutch Shell, its boss has said.

Bernard Looney said that the energy transition required integrated companies that could use oil profits to fund green investment.

He said that BP was a “cash machine” after the oil price soared in the third quarter, helping it to deliver underlying net profits of $3.3billion, up from only $86 million in the same period last year and beating forecasts of $3.1 billion. read more
