As an integrated energy company, bp is turning its strategy into action through initiatives such as rolling out its network of 600 bp pulse EV charge points across Australia by 2025.
Frédéric Baudry, president, bp Australia and SVP Mobility Convenience, & Midstream, Asia Pacific said: “The rollout by bp pulse of fast, reliable chargers at convenient locations across Australia is a prime example of bp’s global commitment to provide customers and partners with the energy and mobility they want, where they want it.
“We are all taking part in the journey towards decarbonisation, and it’s through projects like this with AGL that we hope to encourage uptake and break down the barriers for people considering an EV.”
Sujay Sharma, VP bp pulse, Asia-Pacific said: “We’re putting the customer at the heart of our strategy; installing a fast and convenient EV charging network in key metropolitan and regional locations across Australia, and now, through this agreement, eligible AGL customers can take advantage of special rates to charge with bp pulse in New South Wales.”
bp and AGL plan to continue developing on-the-go charging, energy, and mobility offers for customers.
AGL Chief Customer Officer Jo Egan said the bp partnership aligns with AGL’s focus on supporting the electrification of the way customers live, work and move and AGL will collaborate with bp to create other compelling offers for customers.
Ms Egan said: “The partnership aligns with AGL’s focus on supporting the electrification of transportation in Australia, enabling the shift to an electric vehicle to be easy for our customers. We are looking to build a seamless charging experience for electric vehicle drivers to ensure charging is simple, accessible, and affordable – whether that is at home or on-the-go.”
“The partnership recognises the pivotal role we play in shaping Australia’s future. As we transition to a low-carbon future, this strategic partnership will empower our customers with innovative, sustainable and cost-effective EV charging solutions.”
In November 2022 bp launched its global electrification brand, bp pulse, in Australia. bp’s ambition is to build Australia’s most convenient fast-charging EV network and customer experience, through the installation of around 600 charge points nationally.
