Hertz and bp have signed a memorandum of
understanding for the development of a network of EV charging
stations in the U.S. powered by bp pulse, bp’s global
electrification and charging solution brand.

The MOU also involves the management of
Hertz’s charging infrastructure by bp pulse and the customization
of its Omega software to ensure Hertz’s growing fleet of electric
rental cars are recharged quickly and efficiently between rentals.

Omega supports fleet operations by automating charging when the
power price is low, while providing real-time visibility to EVs,
chargers, power usage and more.

Hertz already has a footprint of locations across
North America suitable for bp pulse to build and manage a network
of fast-charging hubs to serve Hertz customers, including taxi and
ride sharing drivers, as well as the general public.

“This is a landmark moment. It shows the power of
bringing together bp’s digital and operational capabilities with a
partner like Hertz. Together with its industry-leading
electrification ambitions, we can change the future of electric
rental cars,” said Vic Shao, founder of Amply Power and president of
bp pulse’s fleet division in the United States.

Through large-scale purchases from Tesla, Polestar
and GM, Hertz has assembled a fleet of tens of thousands of EVs,
which are available at 500 Hertz locations across 38 states.

The company’s objective is for one-quarter of its fleet to be electric
by the end of 2024, with continued growth through acquisitions
from various EV manufacturers.

Hertz has invested in thousands of
charging stations across its locations, and this partnership with bp pulse will enable Hertz to substantially expand its national
charging footprint.

Stephen Scherr, Hertz CEO said, “Hertz is
accelerating the adoption of electrification by investing in the
largest rental fleet of electric vehicles in North America and
expanding the availability of charging stations. We are excited to
partner with bp pulse to create a national charging infrastructure
for the Hertz EV fleet, thereby growing the number of charging
options available to our customers and providing them with a
premium electric experience and lower emission travel options.”

bp pulse is expanding its global network of
high-speed charging for cars, light commercial vehicles and
trucks, with a global target of more than 100,000 chargers by
2030, with about 90% of those rapid or ultra-fast chargers.
