MP2 Energy Texas LLC recently filed, with the Texas Secretary of State, certificates of assumed business names for the names "Shell Energy Retail" and "Shell Energy Solutions"
Despite operating several retail suppliers in the U.S., including MP2 Energy, Shell does not currently use the Shell brand name for a mass market retail energy business in the U.S. (though the Shell logo and business affiliation are prominently featured on MP2 marketing materials)
Shell previously operated Shell Energy Services in the natural gas mass market, but sold such company's retail energy assets to MXenergy in 2006.
Shell does use the Shell brand for its mass market retail energy business in the U.K.
Shell does operate a Shell-branded non-residential focused retail supplier -- Shell Energy North America (US) LP -- in various U.S. markets, including Texas
MP2 Energy Texas LLC has not yet filed at the Texas PUC to use either of the newly assumed Shell-branded business names.
As previously reported, Shell earlier this year acquired Texas REP Pulse Power, and has entered into a transaction to acquire Inspire Energy
