Shell Mobility India plans to set up more than 10,000 charging points across India by 2030 through the Shell Recharge Stations. The company noted that the power sourced on its EV recharge chargers is 100% green energy.
In the first phase of its launch, Shell plans to set up charging stations in Bengaluru across its fuel stations located in Yeshwantpur, Marathalli, Old Madras Road, Brookefield and Kanakpura. The company has plans to expand its EV charging infrastructure beyond its existing retail markets of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana, Assam, and Andhra Pradesh.
Shell will also provide customised charging solutions at on-the-go locations such as Shell fuel stations, standalone EV hubs, home charging and destination locations. For on-the-go and standalone EV hubs, the company will deploy 100 kilowatts (KW) and direct-current (DC) fast chargers.
Customers will be able to operate these chargers through the ‘Shell Recharge India app,’ available on both Android and iOS operating systems, noted Sanjay Varkey, Director, Shell Mobility, India.
'The Shell Recharge proposition is based on unique insights that we picked up in our research and global experience. This enables us to provide safe, green, and integrated mobility solutions to our customers,' he added.
