Shell Fulham features nine high-powered, ultra-rapid 175kW charge points which can charge most vehicles within ten minutes.

A global pilot, this is the first time the company has converted one of its existing sites to cater solely for electric vehicles.

The site includes a seating area, a Costa Coffee store and an extensive Little Waitrose & Partners shop.

Sustainable Design Features for EV Drivers

 

Shell Fulham features a sustainable design including a timber canopy with built-in solar panels and double glazed windows.

Additionally, Propelair’s water-saving toilets have been installed at the site. Designed and manufactured in the UK, Propelair toilets use on average 84 per cent less water than standard models, combining just 1.5 litres of water with a high-speed jet of air. The closed lid improves hygiene by reducing airborne germs such as COVID-19 by up to 95 per cent.

EV Charging Infrastructure

 

Shell has previously stated an ambition to install 50,000 on-street chargers in the UK by 2025 through Shell-owned company ubitricity, and in July 2021 announced that up to 800 Shell electric vehicle charging points would be installed in as many as 100 Waitrose sites across the UK by 2025.

Commenting on the new site, 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.”
