Shell has announced that it will open its first EV charging hub in Fulham in early 2022.
In Fulham, west London, they are converting a conventional fuel service station into an electric vehicle charging hub that will feature ten high powered, 175kW charge points. These ultra-rapid charge points can deliver power up to three times faster than rapid 50kW chargers, typically charging from 0-80% in 30 minutes.
The hub will also offer a comfortable seating area for waiting EV drivers to ensure that customers can use the time they spend charging more effectively. The hub will have a Costa Coffee store and an extensive Little Waitrose & Partners shop offer.
The hub will also feature a sustainable design with solar panels built into the roof to generate renewable electricity for the site. The chargers will all run on 100% certified renewable electricity. The hub’s canopy will be constructed from sheets of timber glued together which use much less energy to produce and transport than steel.
Planning permission for the hub was received in early 2021.
Shell currently provides customers with access to a public charging network of nearly 8,000 EV charging points, including their rapid and ultra-rapid Shell Recharge points on Shell forecourts.
