3,400 tonnes CO₂e [Aug-Dec 2018]
According to BP’s latest Energy Outlook report there could be more than 350 million electric vehicles (EV) on the roads around the world by 2040. The development of convenient and innovative EV charging technologies and networks to support this growth is part of BP’s strategy to advance the energy transition. In 2018, we acquired Chargemaster, and now have more than 6,500 charging points across the UK, through BP Chargemaster. Combining our complementary expertise, experience and assets marks an important step towards offering our customers access to fast and ultra-fast charging at our service stations.
All of the electricity that BP Chargemaster’s network of charging points uses is certified as renewable through the redemption or purchase of Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) by independent energy supplier Ovo. Since August 2018, BP Chargemaster has supplied almost three million kWh of certified renewable electricity to customers, powering more than 11.5 million miles of travel and avoiding more than 3,400 tonnes of carbon dioxide. We plan to begin installing charge points at BP service stations in the UK in 2019.
