Electric vehicle charging

We are growing our electric vehicle charging business to support customers who choose to change from a petrol or diesel vehicle to an electric one.

Shell Recharge, our public charging network, is present in around 30 markets. At the end of 2023, we had around 54,000 public charge points at Shell forecourts, on-street locations and at destinations like supermarkets, up from 27,000 charge points in 2022. We expect to have around 70,000 public charge points by 2025 and around 200,000 public charge points by 2030.

In 2023, we completed the acquisition of Volta Inc. in the USA. We now operate one of the largest public electric vehicle charging networks in the country, with more than 3,000 charge points across 31 states. We also acquired evpass, which owns Switzerland’s largest network of electric vehicle charging stations.

In China in 2023, we opened our largest electric vehicle charging station globally, which has 258 fast-charging points partially powered by the station’s rooftop solar panels.
