Today Shell announced that they will be building car charging capabilities in their UK petrol stations this year, which doesn’t mean that they will cut out their work with oil, however, it does mean that they will be working towards a better electric future before the end of the year.
To start off with, they will be deploying car chargers that will offer 50kW recharging speeds at their stations in Greater London and Derby.
These chargers will be fully capable of charging the Nissan Leaf, the BMW i3, and other ChAdeMO and CCS-compatible cars electric cars, which is a number of cars that includes Tesla, just at slower speeds.
To top that off, they will also install chargers in the Randstad region of western Netherlands.
This is all thanks to their partnership with Allego, an electric car infrastructure company. Anja van Niersen, the CEO of Allego said the following about the partnership:
“We are proud being a service partner for Shell and that we can contribute to the transition towards cleaner mobility. We are looking forward to support Shell in delivering excellent value to its customers. We see that people are willing to shift towards electric mobility. But a lack of appropriate level of charging infrastructure and interoperable charging services is one of their main concerns. Allego and Shell join forces by adding fast chargers at the right service stations. Shell now actively contributes in creating a reliable and open charging network. A network that is accessible for all EV drivers, despite the brand of the car.
