The best way to predict the future is to create it!
Shell runs hundreds of forecourts across the UK that provide fuels and convenience products to our customers. Help us to understand when and where in the UK we should introduce facilities for charging of electric vehicles?
There are currently 660,000 electric and 445,000 hybrid electric plug in the UK, with this number increasing year on year. Shell are passionate about the environment and providing clean energy solutions for the UK and are keen to develop a world that no longer uses petrol and diesel pumps on forecourts as soon as possible.
First Step Challenge:
Can you help Shell decide when they should stop selling petrol and diesel on their forecourts across the UK? Looking at our data, should we close all of these forecourts at the same time? In certain parts of the UK? Or for certain transportation types, such as lorries etc.

Where should Shell build their next electric hub to ensure they hit their clean energy target for 2030?
Shell plan to grow their public charging network to 100,000 by 2030. This means that 90% of all UK drivers will be within a 10-minute drive of a Shell rapid charger. This includes on forecourts and in new locations like our all-EV hub in Fulham and Waitrose stores.
Next Step Challenge:
Can you advise us on where the location(s) of these EV charging hubs should be in the UK, considering many factors, commuters, holiday makers, taxi drivers etc. We will supply you with all the information you need to make these recommendations to us to assist Shell meet their clean energy target.
