Shell has replaced existing petrol and diesel pumps at its Fulham fuel station with ultra-fast chargers to open its first electric vehicle (EV) charging hub in the UK.
The hub features nine 175kW chargepoints, as well as a timber canopy with built-in solar panels. These chargers run on 100% certified renewable electricity, with this certified through the Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) scheme.
István Kapitány, Shell’s global executive vice president for mobility, said: “EV drivers are looking for a charging experience that is as fast, convenient and comfortable as possible. This is exactly what Shell Fulham aims to offer.”
The site also features a seating area, free Wi-Fi, a Costa Coffee café and a Little Waitrose & partners.
In 2021, Shell announced that up to 800 Shell EV chargepoints would be installed in as many as 100 Waitrose sites across the UK by 2025.
Additionally, Shell is aiming to install 50,000 on-street chargers in the UK by 2025 through ubitricity, having acquired the company in early 2021.
