Electric vehicle charging

Shell aims to become a global leader in electric vehicle charging, meeting customer needs at home, at work or on the road.

At the end of 2022, we operated around 139,000 public and private electric vehicle charge points, including more than 27,000 public charge points at Shell forecourts, on-street locations and at destinations like supermarkets. This is a considerable increase on last year’s figures of around 86,000 and 8,000 respectively.

During the year, we offered electric vehicle charging under the Shell Recharge brand in more than 25 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. We also formed or expanded collaborations with a range of partners, including electric vehicle manufacturers, retail destinations, real estate owners, cities and municipalities. And we extended our capabilities in electric vehicle charging through the acquisitions of Cable Energía, a provider of destination charging in Spain and Portugal, and SBRS, a provider of charging solutions for commercial electric vehicles, including e-buses, e-trucks and e-vans.
