BP Pulse has signed a deal to deliver an ultra-fast EV charging infrastructure to start-up electric car charging hub company The EV Network
Britain’s ultra-fast EV charging infrastructure is set to take another significant step forward after BP Pulse signed a deal with electric car charging hub start-up The EV Network (EVN).
The company will install ultra-fast chargers of up to 300kW at “high-traffic locations” including alongside the UK’s motorway network.
The first hub, with 24 ultra-fast charging points, will open later in 2021.
BP Pulse says the announcement is part of a strategy to double the size of its network, to 16,000 charge points, by 2030.
The company will focus on rolling out ultra-fast chargers, and plans to grow them 30-fold by 2030.
Reza Shaybani, co-founder and CEO of EVN said: “This ground-breaking agreement with BP Pulse has got 2021 off to a racing start. As the largest public charge point operator in the market, BP Pulse is a perfect partner for EVN to deliver critically required EV charging infrastructure nationwide.”
BP Pulse CEO Matteo de Renzi added the new hubs “will complement bp pulse’s existing plans to expand the number of ultra-fast chargers on BP’s forecourts and it’s exciting to be launching this new additional option for drivers”.
