Shell to install 800 EV chargers in Waitrose stores by 2025 Car News

Energy multinational Shell will install 800 electric vehicle chargers in Waitrose stores by 2025, nearly eightfolding the number of its chargers in the UK.

Around 100 Waitrose stores will benefit from Shell Recharge stations, with each site to receive six 22kW chargers and two 50kW fast chargers.

The first installation is expected to take place early next year, with the aim of creating what Shell calls ‘destination charging,’ where customers charge their electric vehicles at a location they primarily visit for an activity, such as shopping.

“This is great news for EV drivers across the UK knowing they can charge easily, quickly and reliably at Shell charging stations while shopping at Waitrose,” said Bernadette Williamson, Managing Director of Shell UK Retail. “We want to make charging electric vehicles as easy as possible and help our customers wherever they want to charge. “

The partnership will also result in an increase in the number of Shell stores selling Waitrose food from 57 to 125 by 2025.

“We are also delighted to bring our customers 800 new electric vehicle charging points, including new fast-charging capabilities, as the UK increasingly moves towards a sustainable transport network,” said said the executive director of Waitrose. James Bailey.

There are 108 Shell charging points in the UK, almost half of which are in London.

Shell recently acquired the electric vehicle charging company Ubitricity and has set itself a target of installing a total of 5,000 charging points in forecourts and other locations by 2025.
