Oman’s petrol stations to go solar after schools get same treatment

Oman’s petrol stations are going green, with the introduction of solar energy, the Times of Oman reported.

The initiative is scheduled to be completed by March 2018, and will be lead by Oman Oil marketing company.

It comes after the successful campaign by Shell Oman Marketing which saw several schools across the country install solar panels.

David Kalife, CEO at Oman Oil Marketing Company, said, “As a home-grown organization, it is our responsibility to support the Sultanate’s long-term renewable energy strategies and protect Oman’s environment.”

Uber goes to court to keep London operations

LONDON: Uber is beginning its court case to remain on the streets of London, arguing that the ride-hailing app has made significant changes since a regulator refused to renew the company’s operating license last year.
Lawyers for the company are opening their case Monday at Westminster Magistrates Court in an effort to overturn Transport for London’s ruling last September that Uber was not a “fit and proper” company after repeated lapses in corporate responsibility.
The regulator raised a number of concerns about Uber, including driver vetting, the way it reports serious criminal offenses and the use of technology that allegedly helps the company evade law enforcement officials.
Uber has been allowed to continue operating pending appeal.
