Shell and redos set up charging infrastructure at retail parks

Shell Deutschland GmbH and the redos Group are jointly promoting the development of charging infrastructure for electric cars at retail parks and other retail locations in Germany. To this end, up to 8 DC charging points will be installed at each of 57 locations across Germany in the coming years. The fast and ultra-fast charging points at the parking lots, which are supplied with 100 percent green electricity, offer a charging capacity of 150 to 400 kW.

“We want to be the partner of choice, making it easier for customers to switch to a battery electric vehicle because they can charge whenever and wherever they want. That is why I am very pleased that we have been able to win a strong partner in redos for the Germany-wide development of the charging infrastructure for e-cars”, said Linda van Schaik, as General Manager Mobility DACH, responsible for the Shell Mobility business in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

“With our locations, we have a lever to actively shape the mobility revolution. The ESG-compliant orientation of our properties is an essential part of redos’ sustainability strategy. In addition, an existing e-charging infrastructure at our retail locations is a crucial service offering for our tenants’ customers. With Shell, we have the right partner on our side to help us install solutions that significantly exceed the minimum legal requirements for an e-charging infrastructure that will apply from 2025”, says Lucas Wilbers, Associate Director Asset Management at redos.

Shell aims to become a net-zero emissions company by 2050. One building block for this is the development of a broad charging offer for electric vehicles. The course for this was also set early on in the German market. In 2017, the company bought NewMotion, then Europe’s largest charging provider, which has since been renamed Shell Recharge Solutions. In 2022, Shell opened the first Shell Recharge fast-charging stations in parking lots of REWE and PENNY stores, while there is also a cooperation agreement with IONITY, the joint venture of Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Hyundai, Porsche and Volkswagen, to install fast charging points along highways in European countries.

Shell’s goal is to operate over 70,000 open charging points worldwide by 2025 and over 200,000 by 2030.
