Leader in smart EV charging solutions and previously known as NewMotion, Shell Recharge Solutions has achieved a major milestone within its public charging network in the UK by now having 10,000 charging connections accessible through its UK network. Over the past year, the number of total public charge points in the UK has increased by 37% to over 29,000, meaning that the Shell Recharge roaming network now provides access to nearly a third of all public charge points. This increased interoperability is essential for open accessibility of charging infrastructure.
The public roaming network available via Shell Recharge recently added 526 charge points operated by GeniePoint and now offers access to 1,500 rapid chargers. Across Europe, the network now offers access to almost 300,000 charge points. By creating a more connected charging network for drivers, drivers can more simply access a larger charging infrastructure and enjoy a better EV driving experience.
In addition, charge points installed and operated by ubitricity, a company acquired by Shell in 2021 counts over 4,500 on-street charge points. Shell aims to operate over 500,000 charge points globally by 2025, including Shell Recharge ultra-fast charge points on Shell forecourts.
