The bp’s electric vehicle charging business will collaborate to install 900 electric vehicle charging points in 70 M&S stores. Over a two-year timeframe.
The deployment will grow the UK charging network and expand the bp pulse network. The installation will add up to 40,000 kWhs of charging capacity to the country’s electric vehicle infrastructure.
bp will install a combination of ultra-fast charging points during the deployment to provide the right speed for every need.
At M&S Maidstone Eclipse and Southgate, 15 fast charging points are open to the public following successful pilot installations.
The two companies have had a relationship since 2005. This year, they joined forces to introduce M&S food stores into bp outlets. More than 250 bp pulse refill points are now available at more than 60 bp-operated service stations offering M&S Food.
Achieve the goal of zero net emissions
This new agreement is a significant extension of this relationship and highlights how the two companies are working together to achieve the goal of zero net emissions.
Sacha Berendji, COO of M&S, said, “At M&S, we are reshaping the business for sustainable future growth in every way. And help our customers reduce their carbon emissions. We know that electric vehicle charging is in high demand by our customers. So we are delighted to offer this service and give customers more reasons to shop with us.”
Akira Kirton, CEO of bp pulse UK, said, “We aim to offer our customers a fast, reliable, and convenient electric vehicle charging service to suit their busy lifestyles. We are therefore delighted to extend our relationship with M&S to put high-speed charging points in their stores, further growing our network. It’s the kind of partnership the UK needs to help the transition to lower carbon transport.”
bp pulse leading company of charging networks
bp pulse is the UK’s most widely used electric vehicle charging operator. And it has one of the world’s leading public ultra-fast and fast electric vehicle charging networks.
bp pulse is expanding its high-speed charging network for cars, light commercial vehicles, and trucks. The company is ambitious to have more than 100,000 chargers installed worldwide by 2030. This expansion intends to support bp’s ambition to be a net zero company by 2050.
bp is supporting Britain with plans to invest up to £18 billion in the UK energy system by 2030. These plans include up to £1 billion for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
M&S’s Plan A aims to become wholly neutral by 2040. But, M&S cannot achieve this ambitious target alone. It needs the support of customers, colleagues, and suppliers to help reduce emissions across the value chain.
The agreement will bring electric vehicle charging points to many M&S stores nationwide. And the modernization of its store services will help customers make positive choices and reduce their environmental impact.
