Shell puts electric charge into green energy future

Shell puts electric charge into green energy future

Emily Gosden, Energy Editor The Times

Royal Dutch Shell plans to operate as many as 2.5 million electric vehicle charging points globally by 2030 under a new emissions-reduction strategy that will see its oil output decline.

The Anglo-Dutch oil giant sought to flesh out its 2050 net zero emissions goal with a plan to focus on customer-facing business such as electricity sales, rather than power generation like its peers. It intends to operate half a million charging points by 2025, up from 60,000 today, and could increase this to 2.5 million by the end of the decade. read more

Shell Energy posts £32m loss as ‘unsustainable pricing’ draws customers away

Shell Energy posts £32m loss as ‘unsustainable pricing’ draws customers away

21 Dec / 2020: 14:04

Shell Energy has posted an almost £32 million loss for 2019, pointing to falling customer numbers as competition in the sector remains strong.

In the company’s financial results for the year ended 31 December 2019, the company’s loss before tax sits at £31,538,000, a dramatic increase from £20,994,000 the year previously.

Operating loss also grew, hitting £26,765,000 in 2019 compared to £20,302,000 in 2018 driven principally by “adverse market conditions” the company noted. No dividends were paid in 2019 compared to £5,000,000 in 2018. read more

Shell plans on carrying out Floating Solar tryout to Generate Hydrogen at the current ranch

Shell plans on carrying out Floating Solar tryout to Generate Hydrogen at the current ranch

11 Aug 2020

The Royal Dutch Shell-led Crosswinds has earned lease agreements on creating a new offshore wind ranch on the North Sea of the Dutch region.

The wind ranch of 760 megawatts will use practically 70 Siemens Ganesa turbines.

As confirmed by Eneco and Shell, on that particular locale, there will be a floating solar park, storage of short-term batteries, turbines set to minimize the ‘wake impact’ and renewable Hydrogen through electrolysis. The consortium aims at delivering the power amidst power outrage. read more

Shell and Eneco’s offshore wind farm to include floating solar and hydrogen production

Shell and Eneco’s offshore wind farm to include floating solar and hydrogen production

PUBLISHED THU, JUL 30 20209:19 AM EDT Anmar Frangoul

A consortium made up of Shell and Eneco is to develop an offshore wind farm that will incorporate a range of “technology demonstrations” including floating solar and hydrogen produced by electrolysis.

The 759 megawatt (MW) Hollandse Kust (noord) facility will be subsidy free and able to produce at least 3.3 terawatt hours annually, according to Eneco, a Rotterdam-headquartered firm whose shareholders are the Mitsubishi Corporation and Chubu Electric Power Co. The project will use 69 turbines from Siemens Gamesa, which will have a capacity of 11 MW each. read more

Shell to Test Floating Solar, Hydrogen Generation at New Wind Farm

Shell to Test Floating Solar, Hydrogen Generation at New Wind Farm

BY THE MARITIME EXECUTIVE 07-30-2020

The Royal Dutch Shell-led CrossWind consortium has won the lease rights to develop a novel offshore wind farm in the Dutch sector of the North Sea. The 760 megawatt farm will use about 70 giant Siemens Gamesa turbines, but it also incorporates five unusual energy demonstrator projects.

According to Shell and co-developer Eneco, the site will include a floating solar park; short-term battery storage; turbines tuned to minimize the “wake effect” that each turbine has on the units behind it; and renewable hydrogen via electrolysis. The consortium hopes that some combination of these measures will help to even out the supply of power when the wind is low. read more
