BP aims to have 20,000 HPC stations in Germany by 2030

BP operates one of the largest High-Power Charging (HPC) networks in Germany under the Aral Pulse brand, which plans to build 20,000 ultra-fast charging points in the country.

With over 1,700 electric vehicle charging points, BP operates one of Germany’s largest high-power charging networks under the Aral Pulse brand, which currently manages approximately 2,400 petrol stations in the country.

By the end of 2023, Aral intends to have reached 3,000 HPC charging points.

BP’s statement reveals that the Aral Pulse network will grow to 5,000 charging points with at least 150 kW capacity by 2025 and up to 20,000 charging points by 2030.

Another player that recently announced its intention to expand its HPC network in Germany is EnBW, aiming to reach 30,000 charging points by 2030.

Regarding the chargers to be installed this year, Aral Pulse highlighted that they will be located “at petrol stations and busy locations like supermarkets and restaurants,” following their established approach.

It is highly likely that a similar modus operandi will be adopted for the rest of the equipment to be installed in the following years.

BP also has plans to offer specially developed charging solutions for electric trucks, as well as other low CO2 emission energy sources for vehicle propulsion. For example, a network of low CO2 emission mobility hubs will be developed for medium and heavy-duty cargo transport.

“Germany is a core market for BP and an example of how we put our ‘and not or’ approach into practice. We are increasing our investments in Germany to deliver more low carbon energy and products that our customers want,” said Patrick Wendeler, Chief Executive Officer of BP Europe SE.

In summary, BP aims to utilize the €10 billion initiative to “drive its transformation into an integrated energy company in Germany.”

To achieve this, the group’s core business areas, refining product production and sales, will be complemented by growing businesses with lower CO2 emissions.

This expansion includes the development of hydrogen production and transportation plans, offshore wind energy projects, investments in sustainable biofuels, and aviation fuels.
