HOUSTON, TX - BP has announced a deal for their global EV charging business, BP pulse, to install and operate EV charging Gigahubs on 75 sites with Simon, a real estate investment trust engaged in the ownership of premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations.

This deal will deliver over 900 ultra-fast charging bays that support nearly every make and model of EVs on the market today across all locations, with the first locations opening to the public in early 2026.

EV charging is one of BP's five transition growth engines, helping drive its transformation to an integrated energy company while also investing in today's energy system. BP pulse is focusing on four core markets that have the largest EV car parks: Germany, the US, the UK and China, as well as several joint ventures and other countries with potential for future growth. Worldwide, BP pulse has a network of over 33,900 charging bays and aims to roll out more than 100,000 by 2030. In 2023 the number of charge points in the BP pulse network grew by 35% year-on-year.
