Shell has turned one of its filling stations in Fulham into an electric vehicle charging center. The company plans to switch several filling stations to electricity this year.
RBC-Ukraine Auto reports this with a link to Autoexpress.
The refurbished Shell Recharge Fulham station now serves solely electric vehicles. It has nine charging points with a capacity of 175 kW each. Interestingly, the chargers run on 100% renewable energy. To partially cover energy costs, the entire roof of the cafe and store at the gas station is covered with solar panels.
Shell previously announced plans to install 50,000 street chargers by 2025 through its subsidiary Ubitricity and equip 800 fast charging points for electric vehicles in parking lots in about the same time.
The energy company plans to re-equip several gas stations located in densely populated residential areas of megacities in the electric car charging station in the coming years. So the gas station in Fulham is just the first sign.
