Shell, Carrefour and Redevco set to install approximately 1,000 charging points in Carrefour car parks by the end of 2024
December 14, 2023
Brussels, 14 December 2023 – Last summer, Belgian Shell NV (Shell), Carrefour Belgium and real-estate company Redevco started rolling out a network of charging stations for hybrid and electric cars. Today, the three partners will all be present in the car park of the Carrefour hypermarket in Korbeek-Loo to watch the unveiling of the 100th charging station. A total of almost 500 charging stations will be installed between now and 2025. Enough to charge more than 1,000 vehicles simultaneously. The partners are strongly committed to the energy transition and want to improve and optimise the charging infrastructure for their customers.
Shell is making it smart and easy for electric car drivers to charge their vehicles
In June last year, Shell announced the expansion of its charging-station network via a partnership with Carrefour (a supermarket chain) and Redevco, one of Carrefour’s most important real-estate partners. Shell’s ambition is to contribute to the feasibility of sustainable mobility by making smart and easy charging possible for everyone, wherever they are: at home, work, on the road or somewhere else – doing their shopping, for example.
Filip de Bois was at our retail park in Korbeek-Lo (Leuven): “As a real estate company, we want to make the locations where we operate more sustainable and liveable for everyone. Encouraging green mobility is definitely part of that. Thanks to the collaboration with Shell, by end of 2024 there will be charging stations available at 55 retail parks we manage in Belgium. This is a good thing for all our tenants because it makes convenience shopping extra attractive for their customers. Moreover, the initiative fits into our ‘Mission 2040’ to make our entire portfolio CO2 neutral by 2040.”
