BP is focusing on rapid and ultra-fast charging, with 90% of the charge points installed today falling into those categories.

EV charging is one of the ways that BP is investing in the energy system of the future and investing in today’s energy, which is mainly oil and gas. BP’s five transition growth engines – EV charging, bioenergy, convenience, hydrogen, and renewables & power – are core to BP’s journey to becoming an integrated energy company.

 “We’re building a network of high-speed chargers because we believe customers want and need fast charging as they make the switch to electric vehicles,” the head of BP pulse, Richard Bartlett, says in the piece.

“That’s the difference between adding hundreds of miles of range in minutes and having to leave your car overnight on a slow charger,” he says.
