Shell Energy unveils carbon offset Go Further tariffs

Alice Grundy Junior reporter, 02 Jun / 2020 15:38

Shell Energy has launched two new tariffs, both of which, it says, are to be carbon neutral.

The ‘Go Further’ tariffs are to provide carbon neutral electricity and gas, relying on certified carbon credits from projects that protect or enhance forests around the world for their carbon offset status.

Each carbon credit, it said, represents the avoidance or removal of one tonne of CO2 and is to be subject to a third-party verification process. read more

A month or so later they said my bill was going up for £57 to £83! Why wasn’t it mentioned when I was at renewal stage that I was in arrears?! They tricked me into renewing and tried to increase my bill. Now I’m leaving I have to pay £60 to leave as well as my the other money owed. Outrageous. Will never ever ever ever return to them. read more

Coronavirus: UK energy firms still using debt collectors despite pandemic

Energy suppliers in the UK have continued to use debt collectors, even after they agreed with the government to support customers in financial distress during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Guardian, customers have been targeted by debt collectors and warned that action may be taken against them if they don’t pay their bills.

In one letter, Shell Energy warned a customer that arrangements could be made for a collection agent to visit their home to recoup an outstanding balance of £78.51 ($97.58). read more

Britain’s energy suppliers are continuing to use debt collectors to chase unpaid bills after promising to help households during the coronavirus pandemic by offering payment plans to struggling customers.

Under an agreement with the government, energy suppliers are expected to identify customers who might be in financial distress and offer to reassess, reduce or pause bill payments to help “reassure” homes during the coronavirus lockdown.

But many households and small businesses with outstanding balances on their energy accounts may still be targeted by debt collectors with warnings that action may be taken against them if they don’t pay their bills. read more

Why your energy firm’s cheapest deal might not be its cheapest

Dealing directly with an energy company might seem like a fail-safe way to get the best price from it – but it’s not necessarily the case. The cheapest deal for half of the biggest energy companies was not available directly from their own websites, according to our snapshot investigation.

We checked the websites of 12 of the biggest energy companies in December 2019 and compared the price of the cheapest deal quoted to us with the cheapest deal available elsewhere from the same company, according to available whole-of-market data. read more

Completely useless

Completely useless
Tried to change my broadband to them and they claimed Virgin would not release my number. Rang Virgin and they confirmed they had not asked. Helpline took ages , were of no help , couldn’t sort the issue , didn’t reply when they said they would and didn’t return a call when they said they would.

They need to stick to what they know i.e. selling petrol.

Bunch of clowns

Completely out of the blue I received a letter from Shell demanding immediate payment of £514.40. If I failed to act they would send the baliffs round. I’ve been a customer of OVO for the last 8 years and I’VE NEVER BEEN A CUSTOMER OF SHELL ENERGY. read more

71% of Yorkshire people are thinking of buying electric cars

YORKSHIRE and Humberside has reached a tipping point when it comes to electric cars, with the majority of consumers in the region (71%) now ‘considering’ purchasing one for their next vehicle.

The findings from Shell Energy come after the Government announced plans to bring forward the ban on the sale of new petrol, diesel and hybrid vehicles by five years from 2040 to 2035.

Of those surveyed in Yorkshire and Humberside who said they would consider an EV as their next car, 81% stated that a desire to ‘do their bit for the planet’ made an EV more appealing. read more

METRO: Business briefing: Drivers feel empowered to switch to electric cars

SEVEN out of ten Britons plan to buy an electric car when they trade in their current vehicle, a survey shows.

Cheaper fuel costs and being seen to do more to clean up the planet are major motivating factors, found Shell Energy.

Another is the phasing out of petrol and diesel cars — after the government revealed sales of new ones will be ended in 2035, five years earlier than planned.

Colin Crooks, the chief executive of Shell Energy, said: ‘We support the need for the UK to move faster to meet climate targets and research shows there is public support for the earlier ban on traditional car sales.’ read more

Biggest battery in Europe set to land on British shores

By Sam Morgan | EURACTIV.com

Oil and gas giant Shell has plans for a 100-megawatt grid storage battery in the west of England. It is slated to be the biggest battery in Europe once it is completed later this year and will be crucial to the UK’s quest to remain the continent’s top wind power player.

The battery project in the county of Wiltshire aims to store renewable power in two 50MW cells and then sell it to consumers when demand and prices are high.

“Projects like this will be vital for balancing the UK’s electricity demand and supply as wind and solar power play bigger roles in powering our lives,” said Shell Energy Europe vice president David Wells. read more

Dane lands offshore power grid deal for EDF-Shell’s Atlantic Shores

EDF Renewables North America and Shell New Energies have tapped Danish consulting firm COWI to devise the giant electrical transmission system design for the developers’ planned Atlantic Shores wind complex off the US state of New Jersey.

COWI said its work would encompass design, quantity and placement of onshore and offshore substations as well as the interarray cables connecting substations and individual turbines.

EDF Renewables NA subsequently formed a joint venture with Shell New Energies – Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind – to develop the lease area which they believe has potential to supply up to 2.5GW of wind power capacity to multiple markets along the eastern seaboard. read more

Google Shuts Down Its Moonshot Wind Energy Unit Makani

Royal Dutch Shell Plc, which invested in Makani, said it’s exploring options to use Makani’s technology.

Bloomberg News: Mark Bergen: February 18, 2020: 6:17 PM EST

(Bloomberg) — Alphabet Inc. is shutting down Makani, a subsidiary working on wind energy, as Google’s parent company pares back its experimental technology in favor of its main internet business.

Makani was formed in 2006 to make flying kites that would harness wind power and, eventually, replace more expensive turbines. Google acquired the startup in 2013, placing the group inside its X lab with other “moonshots” like self-driving cars. Makani later became its own Alphabet unit. But the initiative suffered personnel problems and waning support from its parent company, which has pulled back on several green energy projects. read more

Shell to Buy Power From U.K.’s Largest Battery Storage Plant

Shell Energy Europe Ltd. has agreed to trade power from what will be the U.K.’s largest battery storage project.

The Royal Dutch Shell Plc unit agreed to a multi-year deal to “optimize the use of renewable power” in the China-backed project, which is expected to come online by the end of this year. Batteries, Shell says, will play a key role in the energy transition as these will be able to store excess energy and feed it back to the grid when demand calls for it.

China Huaneng Group and China’s state-backed CNIC fund are backing the Minety power storage project, which consists of two 50-megawatt batteries in southwest England. “Projects like this will be vital for balancing the U.K.’s electricity demand and supply as wind and solar power play bigger roles in powering our lives,” according to David Wells, vice president of SEEL. read more

Wind Approval sought for low-cost offshore wind PPAs in Massachusetts

February 12 (Renewables Now) – The electric distribution companies (EDCs) in Massachusetts are seeking the state Department of Public Utilities’ approval of power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Mayflower Wind LLC for the output of an 804-MW offshore wind farm.

The contracts with Unitil, National Grid and Eversource Energy have terms of 20 years.

The project, developed by Shell New Energies and EDP Renewables, was the winner in Massachusetts’ second Request for Proposals (RfP) for offshore wind projects. The levelised price agreed for the wind farm’s output stands at USD 58.47 (EUR 53.6) per MWh in real 2019 dollars, according to a letter in support of the long-term power contracts by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources. The Mayflower wind park is projected to bring direct savings to ratepayers of USD 24/MWh in real 2019 dollars, on average, over the term of the power contracts. read more
