Change in the petrol pump
Patch, shop, exchange: The petrol station of tomorrow will become the energy hub

The number of petrol stations has more than halved in the past decades. The growing electric trend shows that the petrol station of the future has to earn with something other than just with petrol or diesel.
The petrol station operators have long since recognized this and gradually change their business. In any case, the petrol stations have developed into true supermarkets in many federal states, in which beer, frozen pizza, handkerchiefs and chips are not only bought after the shop closes. The best example is Bavaria, because while other federal states have long since softened their shopping times and give customers flexibility, at least six days a week, in Munich, Nuremberg and Augsburg from 8 p.m. This means that even food can only be bought at train stations, airports or at petrol stations. Since the margins are lower than ever in the liquid fabrics, the petrol station operators see the outdated shop closure anything but reluctant to buy, because the bare essentials are bought at, at least outside of these times.
Still petrol pumps for decades – but more and more charging stations
The charging stations are also increasingly an issue, because the large petrol station operators know that the future of new vehicles will be electrical. But the number of existing vehicles will grow first and so the used cars secure the petrol pumps for decades. Nevertheless, petrol and diesel will be much less in demand in the next few years – because in addition to more and more electric cars on the market, the real consumption of the combustion engines is decreasing.

In order for future business to no longer pass at the normal petrol stations, more and more operators in inner cities, as well as on expressways and motorways, are targeting loading points for electrified cars. In Germany, for example, around 90 percent of these rest areas is hosting the former state -owned company Tank & Rast, which was privatized in 1998 and holds the concessions for around 360 petrol stations and around 400 rest areas including about 50 hotels.
Tank & Rast also wants to save Monopol for e-cars
According to an analysis of the federal material testing and research institution, many petrol stations will soon use their excess solar energy from their own photovoltaic systems for the production of their own energy. In addition to electricity and hydrogen for electric vehicles, synthetic diesel and gasoline fuels could also be produced.

According to a joint study that the petrol station operator Aral and the German Aerospace Center commissioned, the petrol stations of tomorrow are becoming traffic junctions and locations of a new mobility.
Petrol cones, loading electricity and exchange batteries
It would not only be conceivable to refuel combustion and the quick charging of electromobiles, but also possible battery changes as car manufacturers Nio already offers it and want to offer some others as a supplement to the lengthy reloading. According to the ARAL study, the petrol stations of the future would also be conceivable as stations for personal robes, from which electroscooters or autonomous taxis or e-bikes can be switched.

Hardly any of the large petrol station operators are currently not involved in not supplementing the existing petrol pumps for petrol, diesel and natural gas by further electrolade points. Aral currently wants to build 500 charging points at 120 petrol stations with his sub -brand Pulse. With the 350 kilowatt charts, reloading is almost as fast as the normal tank process with the combustion engineer. Aral Board Board Patrick Wendeler: “In view of the increasing demand for electric vehicles, the time is ripe to accelerate the expansion of the charging infrastructure.“The charging stations provide 100 percent green electricity and depending on the location have a charging capacity of up to 350 kilowatts.

Synthetic fuels as a climate fuel
Competitor Shell is currently in two tracks. On the one hand, Hamburg offer synthetic fuels and offer a liquid alternative to normal fuels. In addition, there are also more and more large Shell petrol stations for fast charging stations. In 2018 Tamoil started to make your own petrol station network fit for electronics. “We are also increasingly relying on the expansion in rural areas in Germany, in order to be able to guarantee the possibilities and the offer for the end consumers over a large area. At HEM we are service providers for the mobility of people and want to continue to be customers who choose e-mobility in the future, ”explains Yvonne Moldenhauer, district manager of Deutsche Tamoil GmbH. Greater and in particular more open than other petrol station operators, petrol station operators Westphalia is committed to the charging stations. The Westphalia with headquarters in Munster make no secret of the fact that they see electromobility at their petrol pumps as a real alternative to the liquid fabrics.
