Royal Dutch Shell is preparing to open the UK’s first “no-petrol” service station in London next year, according to the Telegraph.

The oil company, which is planning to move to cleaner energy, is planning to open a service station offering biofuels, electric vehicle charging points and hydrogen cell refuelling in place of the traditional petrol and diesel pumps, sources close to the Telegraph have revealed.

The building itself is rumoured to be powered by renewable energy from solar panels on the forecourt roof.

Shell has declined to comment.

The company also plans to roll out high-speed electric vehicle charge points across a selection of its four hundred UK service stations.
