This Is The World's Largest Public EV Charging Station

Shell, together with BYD, has opened the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Shenzhen, China.

Located about 2.5 kilometers from the Shenzhen Airport Terminal and features 258 public fast-charging points.

Operated by Shenzhen Shell and BYD Electric Vehicle Investment Company Limited, a joint venture between Shell and BYD, the Shell Recharge Shenzhen Airport EV Station served more than 3,300 EVs every day during its trial operation. In addition to EV charging, the station offers Shell Select convenience retailing, Shell Café, vending machines, and a driver lounge.

The rooftop solar panels installed at the station could generate about 300,000 kilowatt-hour of renewable electricity per year, which will be used to charge customers' vehicles.

While the number of EVs grows rapidly, Shell remains committed to meeting the different energy and mobility needs of drivers. In Wuhan, for example, Shell opened its Panlong Integrated Energy Station. This station offers more than ten types of mobility products and services, including petrol and diesel, EV charging, hydrogen refueling, car wash facilities, a convenience store, a restaurant, a driver lounge, and other services.

Shell currently has over 40,000 public charge points globally at service stations, mobility hubs, on-street and at destinations like supermarkets, and expects to have around 200,000 by 2030.

In March last year, Shell and BYD signed a strategic cooperation agreement to help accelerate the energy transition and improve charging experiences for EV customers. In China, the joint venture currently operates more than 13,000 charge points in Shenzhen.
