If it doesn't sell petrol, but, leaving that aside, what a positive announcement from Shell. If ever there were an indicator of the gathering momentum for EVs and the required infrastructure, then an oil giant announcing a fossil-fuel free services station must be it. 

Admittedly, it's early days,  but the vision of a refuelling hub, powered by renewable energy, with battery storage onsite surely represents a cleaner, more sustainable future.   

And whilst they're at it, can Shell please speak to the people running Gloucester Services, and get some of those cakes...
