bp pulse to install 900 charge points at Marks & Spencer stores
British retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S) and bp pulse have signed an agreement to install 900 EV charge points at around 70 M&S stores across the UK in the next two years.
The roll-out will significantly expand bp pulse’s network, growing the UK’s charging network and adding up to 40,000 kW of charging capacity to the UK’s EV infrastructure, says the company.
bp has plans to invest up to £1 billion in EV charging infrastructure in the UK—a step towards bp’s global ambition of having more than 100,000 chargers installed worldwide by 2030.
“We aim to provide fast, reliable and convenient EV charging to our customers that fits in with their busy lifestyles,” said Akira Kirton, CEO at bp pulse UK. “We are excited to extend our relationship with M&S to put charge points at their stores, growing our network even further.”
