bp pulse to set up Gigahub EV fast-charging network near U.S. airports.

The first bp pulse Gigahub network will be built near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in collaboration with Hertz.

EV charging provider bp pulse announced its plans to establish the bp pulse Gigahub network, a series of large EV fast-charging hubs designed to serve ride-hail and taxi fleets near U.S. airports and high-demand locations. The first network will be built near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in collaboration with Hertz and is partially funded by a grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC).

The CEC is providing a $2 million grant award to support the proposed project near LAX and would have bp pulse leading the installation and management of the charging infrastructure, including the use of its proprietary ‘Omega’ charge management software that optimizes the cost of charging. The bp pulse Gigahub site would be located at one of Hertz’s sites near LAX.

Vic Shao, president of bp pulse’s fleet division, said: More and more ride-hail and taxi fleets are making bold commitments to electrify. To do so successfully, they will need access to reliable EV charging. Our Gigahub network will provide a charging experience that is convenient and cost-optimized to drivers at airports across the country.”

Jeff Nieman, Senior Vice President of Operations Initiatives at Hertz, added:Our aim is to provide Hertz customers with access to a national network of chargers that makes the experience of renting an electric vehicle convenient and seamless. Rideshare drivers are essential to the mobility landscape, and more than 25,000 Uber drivers have rented EVs through Hertz to date. We are thrilled to partner with bp pulse to offer this charging hub to those drivers at one of Hertz’s great sites near LAX. And it’s just the beginning.”
