Royal Dutch Shell is preparing to open Britain’s first “no-petrol” service station in the capital next year as part of its drive towards cleaner motoring.
The forecourt is expected to offer motorists biofuels, electric vehicle charge points and hydrogen cell refuelling instead of traditional petrol and diesel pumps.
Meanwhile, the buildings are due to be powered by renewable energy from solar panels on the forecourt roof.
Sources close to the Anglo-Dutch oil giant told The Telegraph that a central London site had been chosen, but the project was still at a very early stage. A spokesman for Shell declined to comment.
The no-petrol project is part of the company’s attempts to develop alternative fuels and overhaul its retail arm. Shell plans to open three hydrogen cell refuelling stations in the UK this year.
The first opened alongside traditional pumps at the nation’s busiest refuelling station at Cobham on the M25 in February.
