Shell Recharge Solutions and Motor Fuel Group (MFG) sign agreement giving electric vehicle (EV) drivers access to more than 240 additional rapid chargers

Shell Recharge Solutions and Motor Fuel Group (MFG) have signed a new emobility roaming agreement giving drivers access to more than 240 additional rapid electric vehicle (EV) charge points across the UK.

Shell Recharge Solutions, a leading provider of charging solutions at home, work, at depots and on the go, is providing its customers with access to over 14,000 charge points via 25 roaming partners throughout the UK. This latest roaming agreement will be particularly valuable for customers charging on the go such as fleet drivers who now have access to ultra-rapid chargers found on motorways, a-roads and at dedicated EV hubs.

Motor Fuel Group (MFG), one of the largest independent forecourt operators with over 900 sites, already has more than 240 charge points in the UK. This new roaming agreement will give Shell Recharge customers access to MFG’s network of high-powered electric vehicle chargers via their Shell Recharge app

Shell Recharge Solutions’ 2022 EV Driver Survey also revealed that charging using renewable energy is increasingly important with over 35 per cent of UK drivers saying they only charge using renewable energy. Like the Shell Recharge network at Shell forecourts and at destinations, all of MFG’s electricity is certified 100 per cent renewable, which will be an important consideration for many customers.

Euan Moir, Shell Recharge Solutions regional manager for the UK & Nordics, said “This example of collaboration across EV charging networks helps build a more cohesive and flexible public network in the UK.

“A more accessible network provides a higher level of confidence and a far more consistent and better customer experience, encouraging more drivers and businesses to accelerate their transition to emobility.”

Martin Symes, MFG operations director, EV Network, said; “We are extremely happy to be working with Shell Recharge Solutions to open the MFG EV Power network to their customers. 

“At MFG our focus is to provide an easy access network for all EV drivers to be able to charge and working in synergy with roaming partners is a key component of that. 

“Our sites have been built with customer journeys and safety in mind and offer Ultra-Rapid charging with food to go offerings in safe, well-lit and secure environments that include services such as valeting. MFG EV Power is also excited to have a pipeline of amazing sites to add in 2023.”
