Shell Recharge is powering the future of electric transportation with industry-leading software and services that equips drivers, site hosts, and network operators to efficiently deploy, manage, and leverage EV charging infrastructure at scale.
As EVs become more mainstream, there will be a subsequent increase in charging stations on roads, at workplaces, retail locations, parking garages, among other sites. Electric vehicles represent a significant power capacity, especially as the power rating of these stations increases (150 to 350kW), disruption of EV chargers can be as substantial as the disruption of a power plant. These disruptions can cause economic, health, and environmental damages. The security of this rapidly growing and complex infrastructure is a significant concern for drivers, stations owners, and utilities and grid operators.
Data stored in a reliable and secure AWS cloud with VPCs
All is hosted at highly secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers, the most secure cloud platform available today. Within AWS, all servers and databases are located inside another protective layer, a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), providing outstanding cybersecurity protection.
Security at the software level
Shell Recharge Solutions cybersecurity includes: Security groups that establish specific rules for allowed data flows within a VPC. IP whitelisting that ensures data accessibility from permitted IP addresses. VPNs that enable users to send and receive data securely across public networks. ISO/IEC 27001 compliance for modern, efficient information security systems. In addition, we use and support RDS encryption, SSO (Single Sign-On), Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI).
Security at the hardware level
Shell Recharge Solutions provides many layers of hardware protection, from video surveillance and secured lockers to high level of data encryption built into the hardware.
Cyberattacks can cause threats against:
EV charging system hardware or physical interfaces
EV charging management software
Apps for locating charging stations and paying for services
Wireless communication links connecting charging stations to charging software, mobile app, and billing systems
Physical communication links connecting vehicles to charging stations and stations to the local electrical utility
Shell Recharge Solutions is unlocking the possibilities of the electric mobility future by delivering innovative software, services, and support to deploy EV charging infrastructure at scale.
