According to Electrek, Bp Pulse and Hertz have partnered to create a network of EV fast chargers in busy areas. The goal of the project is to hasten the adoption of EVs by offering charging options in strategic locations.
Their partnership’s first location is anticipated to be at a Hertz outlet close to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The California Energy Commission (CEC) will grant $2 million to support a portion of the project. The installation and infrastructure management will be handled by Bp Pulse.
Although there aren’t many details yet, the new project will lessen the environmental harm caused by the expansion of ride-sharing in Los Angeles. In reality, California’s ride-hailing fleets only account for 2.5% of all vehicles, but they use 30
By the end of the decade, Bp Pulse hopes to have distributed 100,000 EV chargers through its Bp Pulse Division.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was inked in September by Bp and Hertz to create a national EV charging network, which includes ideas for leveraging Pulse to drive the implementation.
By supplying its Omega software to offer real-time data, Bp Pulse maintains Hertz’s EV charging infrastructure.
EVs may be recognized and charged at a specified area thanks to Omega. The system can monitor the charging progress of the car and speed up the billing procedure. Additionally, it offers a mobile app that will expedite and simplify the charging procedure.
Along with rapidly growing its fleet of zero-emission electric vehicles (ZEVs), which began with 100,000 Tesla Model 3s, Hertz.
