Greenpeace, the environmental activist group, bought $218,000 worth of Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. shares in an effort to step up pressure on the company for a large-scale solar panel factory. Members from the group will attend the company's annual general meeting on May 9 in London to put forth a proposal. Greenpeace used a similar process to force a BP Amoco shareholder vote to propose abandoning a $430-million Alaska offshore development.
