It’s always exciting to see a glimpse of the future close up. If the UK and other countries are going to achieve their 2030 Electric Vehicle targets then the Shell EV rapid charging station in Fulham is a model for future forecourts.
It opened late in 2021 at a former Shell (Petrol) station in Fulham in London’s West. Sensibly it is configured to rapidly charge EV’s with 9 high powered, 175kW charge points.
It has a Little Waitrose and a Costa Coffee shop so you can shop or grab a coffee while your vehicle charges and boasts a great open design with solar panels on the roof to deliver 50% of the site’s energy needs.
Nice one Bernadette Williamson and the rest of the Shell team.
Next, we need to solve the on-street EV charging issue (goodbye long extension cords across the pavement) with in-ground wireless charging solutions.
