MFG Manchester EV-only hub

Shell Recharge Solutions has agreed a deal giving its customers access to MFG’s network of charge points across the UK.

Shell Recharge Solutions already provides its customers with access to more than 14,000 charge points via 25 roaming partners throughout the UK.

MFG has more than 240 charge points in the UK, and this new roaming agreement will give Shell Recharge customers access to MFG’s network of high-powered electric vehicle chargers via the Shell Recharge app.

Shell Recharge Solutions’ 2022 EV Driver Survey revealed that charging using renewable energy is increasingly important with over 35% of UK drivers saying they only charge using renewable energy, and like the Shell Recharge network at Shell forecourts all of MFG’s electricity is certified 100% renewable.

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

“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 e-mobility.”

Martin Symes, operations director, EV Network at MFG, 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.”
