Shell opens its largest charging station in China

Shell, the multinational energy company, has announced the opening of its largest electric vehicle (EV) charging station globally in Shenzhen, China. Situated near Shenzhen airport, this facility boasts a remarkable 258 charging points and is equipped with solar panels capable of generating 300,000 kilowatt-hours annually.

This station is a result of a collaboration between Shell and BYD, a major Chinese EV manufacturer. The joint venture signifies a strategic partnership aiming to contribute significantly to the burgeoning EV market in China.

Shell has been progressively increasing its involvement in the EV charging sector, reflecting the growing shift towards sustainable transportation.

In China, Shell already operates around 800 EV charging stations through joint ventures or wholly-owned subsidiaries. The opening of this massive charging station in Shenzhen further underscores the commitment of major industry players to meet the rising demand for EV infrastructure, promoting cleaner and greener modes of transportation.

This aligns with global efforts to combat climate change and reduce carbon emissions by encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles.
