BP Pulse is to expand its ultra-fast EV charging infrastructure in the UK, with a series of new charging hubs developed in partnership with The EV Network (EVN).

BP is aiming to double the size of the bp pulse network in the UK to 16,000 charge points by 2030, with a particular emphasis on ultra-fast chargers.

The total amount of charging on the bp pulse network is due to grow 30-fold by 2030.

“We are building a charging network that will give consumers the confidence to make the switch to EVs, knowing they can get the charge they need in the right places,” said BP Pulse CEO, Matteo de Renzi.

“We’re taking another step forward in our commitment to make ultra-fast charging widely accessible across the UK, including in easy reach of the motorway network. These new hubs will complement bp pulse’s existing plans to expand the number of ultra-fast chargers on bp’s forecourts.”

The agreement is expected to deliver a significant number of new EV charging destinations in the areas with high volumes of traffic. The sites will be developed by EVN with each having a range of ultra-fast charging bays and some becoming EV convenience and mobility hubs with food, drink and other facilities on offer to drivers as they charge.

“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,” added EVN co-founder and CEO Reza Shaybani.

“Together we will be fuelling growth in a vital part of the UK’s green economy, making a reliable national network of EV charging stations a reality for fast growing number of electric vehicle drivers.”
