Joe Lycett to tackle greenwashing for Channel 4

Joe Lycett to tackle greenwashing for Channel 4

By Harry Bennett: Monday, 11th October 2021

Lycett will focus on the energy giant Shell and their marketing as they continue to search for new oil reserves.

In May 2021, the International Energy Agency published a report that outlined a plan to reach net zero emissions by 2050, including a call for an end to the exploration and development of new oil fields.

That same month, the District Court in The Hague judged that Shell’s parent company, Royal Dutch Shell, currently “disregards its individual responsibility” to reduce its overall emissions. It ordered the group to start reducing them by 45% by 2030, but they confirmed in July 2021 that they will appeal the ruling. read more

Shell starts trading power from Europe’s largest battery storage project

Shell has started trading power from Europe’s largest battery storage project, the 100-megawatt system in Minety in Wiltshire, South West England.

Controlled and optimised by Shell-owned Limejump the battery, which is now fully operational, will help balance the UK’s electricity demand, providing electricity for up to 10,000 homes for a day before being recharged.

Shell Energy Europe signed a multi-year offtake agreement in early 2020 to trade all of the power from the battery, as part of Shell’s wider work to help accelerate the transition to cleaner energy sources. read more

BY SOPHIE HIRSH

Sometimes, you just need to take a good, hard look at yourself in the mirror. We’re talking to you, Shell.

This week, oil and gas corporation, Shell, took a break from polluting the planet to ask people on Twitter how they were willing to change their individual habits to help reduce emissions. As one might expect, Shell’s Twitter poll regarding emission reduction did not go over well. read more

INSIGHT- In the run-up to U.S. election, drilling lobby promotes natural gas as ‘clean’

INSIGHT- In the run-up to U.S. election, drilling lobby promotes natural gas as “clean”

By Valerie Volcovici, Andrew R.C. Marshall and Matthew Green: AUGUST 18, 2020

WASHINGTON/LONDON, Aug 18 (Reuters) – America’s biggest oil and gas lobby group is ramping up its advertising spending ahead of the November election to persuade voters that natural gas is a climate-friendly fuel, according to ad buying data.

The campaign by the American Petroleum Institute (API), targeted at younger voters and some tight congressional races, is part of a global battle by the drilling industry to assuage growing fears over the role of natural gas in driving climate change. read more

Electric Car Charging Stations Are Finally About to Take Off

Bloomberg News: Laura Millan Lombrana and Rachel Morison: June 23, 2020

Electric Car Charging Stations Are Finally About to Take Off

(Bloomberg) — The electric vehicle sector has been stuck for years with a chicken-and-egg problem. Until there were extensive networks of public charging stations, a critical mass of people would never feel comfortable driving EVs–but until a critical mass of people were driving EVs, there was no sense in investing in extensive networks of public charging stations.

It may be the coronavirus pandemic that finally breaks the stalemate. BloombergNEF’s latest Long-Term Electric Vehicle Outlook predicts that EVs sales will experience a smaller dip than traditional auto sales as a result of the broader economic squeeze, and that they’ll bounce back more quickly once the market recovers. EVs and the infrastructure needed to charge them have also been a part of many of the stimulus packages announced by European and Asian governments. Just in the past few weeks, Germany included chargers in its €2.5 billion proposed economic package, and the European Union announced that it’s aiming to have 1 million public chargers by 2025, from fewer than 200,000 today. read more

Shell to offset fuel carbon emissions at UK petrol stations

Shell to offset fuel carbon emissions at UK petrol stations

Oil giant Shell has announced plans to offset carbon emission from fuel at a number of its UK petrol stations.

The new project will see Shell offset the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from customers’ fuel purchases on their behalf.

The energy firm is planning to roll the initiative out across 1,000 Shell UK service stations.

Sinead Lynch, Shell UK country chairwoman, said: “Switching to an electric vehicle is the best way for drivers to reduce their CO2 footprints and they can now charge on a growing number of our UK forecourts with 100% renewable electricity.

“But today the majority of people still use petrol and diesel. We can help them address the impact of their emissions by offsetting their fuel purchases, starting now.” read more

Shell seen expanding acquisitions to become world’s biggest power company

Mar. 29, 2019 10:21 AM ET|About: Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A)| By: , SA News Editor

Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A +0.3%) could ramp up acquisitions of electricity producers to achieve its target of becoming the world’s biggest power company by the 2030s, Bernstein analysts say.

Shell must produce 214 terawatt hours of clean power every year by 2035 to become the biggest low-carbon electricity provider, which Bernstein says could be achieved through organic growth, ultimately managing 61 GW of power capacity, but the company probably will want to move faster and expand acquisitions of electricity producers. read more
