Shell Pilipinas Continues to Grow its E-Mobility Business with its First Shell Recharge Mall Deployment

Shell continues to add new charging stations to cement its position as the leader in mobility energy transition. In partnership with Ortigas Land Corporation (OLC), Shell strengthens its commitment to reduce carbon emissions in the Philippines by simultaneously setting up Shell Recharge Stations at Estancia Mall, Greenhills-Connecticut Arcade and Greenhills-Missouri. With the 3 mall-based charging stations in Metro Manila, Shell Recharge network has added 10 charging points which complements the ultra-rapid charging stations in Shell TPLEX La Union and Shell SLEX Mamplasan. Whether the EV drivers travel for long distance or within city driving, Shell Recharge enables e-mobility that is worry free.

The partnership between Shell and OLC is highly strategic, as it brings together Shell’s Global expertise in EV charging and mobility, and OLC’s reputation as a developer of well-received, strategically located malls, embracing emerging new technologies and delivering innovations to anticipate the future needs and aspirations of their customers.

 “Energy transition is a shared responsibility, it thus needs to be a collaborative effort among all industry players, from government agencies to EV manufacturers and dealers to charging station operators, land developers, and even consumers. We all need to do our part to transition to clean energy to help the country achieve the aspired Net Zero Emissions,” said Atty. Diego Santiago from Pasig City Government at the ribbon cutting of the Estancia site. 

“OLC embraces technology and embraces the opportunity to make a tangible difference in reducing carbon emissions through Shell Recharge EV Charging Stations in our malls. Shell’s global expertise in EV charging solutions makes it a logical choice to partner with in this endeavor. By serving and enabling socially responsible mall customers in their responsible life choices, OLC is not just charging e-vehicles, OLC is contributing to a movement towards cleaner air, reduced carbon emissions, and a healthier planet for future generations,” said Renee C. Bacani, VP and Head of Ortigas Malls. 

“With the rising demand for EV charging solutions, we are happy to work with partners both from the public and private sector to scale this sustainably for the Filipino driver. Our partnership with Ortigas Land is one example of how shared values across industries will make this possible.” explains Jolo Valdez, Head of E-Mobility, Vehicle Care, Convenience Retail, Business Alliances at Shell.

With the addition of the three mall-based charging stations, the Shell Recharge network has grown to 6 sites. The Shell Recharge sites at Shell TPLEX in Rosario, La Union, and the Shell Mamplasan create a 700 km loop for EV owners, allowing them to venture far outside Metro Manila. Meanwhile, the new sites are strategically located to be within reach of all NCR dwellers, and even EV owners in adjacent provinces. The Shell Recharge site in Mamplasan is powered by 100% renewable energy and the conversion of the other 4 sites is currently underway.
