Hertz and bp have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a network of electric vehicle charging stations in the United States powered by bp pulse, bp’s global electrification and charging solutions brand.

The MOU also involves bp pulse managing Hertz’s charging infrastructure and customizing its Omega software to ensure Hertz’s growing fleet of electric rental cars are charged quickly and efficiently between rentals.
