    Shell Energy is launching a new electric vehicle (EV) charging offer including an EV tariff and charger.

    The offer includes a discounted home smart charger installed for £299, a saving of 14% compared to the retail price of £349.

    The charger, provided by Shell-owned NewMotion, provides 7kW of power, charging a typical EV in five hours, Shell said. It will be powered by 100% renewable energy, with Shell Energy switching to 100% renewables last year as it re-branded from First Utility.

    There is also access to a 24/7 helpdesk provided, with the offer also including a dedicated EV tariff allowing 2,000 miles worth of free charging per year. This is based on the average cost of 4p per mile and is equivalent to £80 annual credit.

    In addition, through the Shell Recharge app customers are to have access to 135,000 charge points across Europe and 2,000 in the UK. Drivers will also have access to Shell Recharge points on Shell forecourts, with 200 expected by the end of the year, Shell said.

    Charging solutions and bundles have been launched by a number of energy suppliers as e-mobility continues to grow. OVO and ScottishPower have both launched bundles, and Octopus Electric Vehicles launched a fleet charging bundle and home charging solution last month. EV specific tariffs are also becoming increasingly common, with both E.On and SSE launching tariffs.

    Shell Energy’s offering comes as it also unveils new research revealing the majority of consumers (70%) are now considering purchasing an EV for their next vehicle.

    Colin Crooks, CEO of Shell Energy, said: “We support the need for the UK to move faster to meet climate targets and our research shows that there is also public support for the earlier ban on traditional car sales.”

    The government recently confirmed that it is consulting on bringing the phase out of petrol and diesel vehicles forward to 2035.

    There they go again with their con of the century “100% renewable energy”?

    I’m still looking out for one of those filters you put on your electric sockets that filters out all the fossil fuel and nuclear electricity and just leaves 100% renewable. Just suppose there was such a thing, how long in a given 24 hour day would it be for we remove such a filter… about 6 hours at most I would guess, less so in Winter or if I had an EV. 😁

    Now if Shell Energy were to announce tomorrow it’s closing down all it’s oil and gas platforms and wells by the end of the year then yes I would believe their 100% renewable energy providers but until then, pull the other one.

    Oh I forgot, perhaps Shell are planting a couple of saplings in the Brazilian rain forest to off set carbon. LOL.

    I take it you not a fan Chris, at the end of the day the world has a pollution problem, this country has a pollution problem. Companies like Octopus are 100% green energy, but as you say its all mixed up in the system, its not perfect but at least some are trying.

    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    Brydo, I had a good look at the OVO/Mitsubishi free charger and 10,000 mile/2 year deal, I know it is not open to Motability customers, but even if it was, however, I sat down and costed it all  out, OVO charger a day rate in excess of a £1.00 + and their off peak energy and normal rate is not that completive, I worked it I was better of staying with Octopus Energy and changing to their OctupusGo rate and buying my own EV home charger, it worked out several hundreds of pounds cheaper. I not sure of the Shell promotion, I have not costed it out, but to be honest nothing is for free.

    Chris renewables produce more than 20% of the UK’s electricity, and EU targets means that this is likely to increase to 30% by end 2020.

    A world leader in solar is based in England, Oxford.

    Oxford PV perovskite solar cell achieves 28% efficiency and increasing yearly.

    This is a game changer if it can be speced up to full production, if placed on my roof this system would produce about 7500 Kwh of energy. Thats enough energy to power my home and the next door neighbours for a year-ish.

    It’s not that I’m not a fan its just as far as power companies are concerned there in it for the money, nothing more, nothing less.

    We had a big surge in solar panels a decade ago but I’ve not seen so many of late so what’s the problem there? I’d love an all electric car but we must be wary of politicians, king’s and queens who tell us how to live like hermits while they carry on with the good life after all travelling by car or plane would be much more pleasant if we were to get all the working classes off the road and out of the air and just get them on their pushbikes to go to work.

    The daily news goes on and on and on about plastic in the sea but that’s mostly an Asian problem as a lot of counties out there dump rubbish in the sea, granted we use to, but not now, but were the ones paying for plastic bags, not them.

    Then there’s all the European companies falling over each other to move production of cars and aircraft out to China while China burns more coal to keep production going and Europe can boast how we’ve cleaned up our air.

    No its not because I’m not a fan its just because there’s money in muck and commerce is making a mint out of it with tax breaks subsidies but how about spending a bit of money for solar panels on our roofs for a change if there that good but no were not going to see that because were the ones who have to pay and free electricity from the Sun just ain’t on and you can be sure should I find a suitable PHEV I would be using electric to its full advantage not like commerce taking the tax breaks and running their PHEW’s on petrol and diesel only.

    I rest my case. 😁
