Paua partners with Osprey electric vehicle (EV) charging
Partnership extends the network of chargepoints that Paua’s electric car drivers can use
Paua has partnered with Osprey Charging Network to extend the network of chargepoints that Paua’s electric car drivers can use on the Paua electric fuel card solution. Osprey is one of the UK’s largest and fastest-growing public networks of electric vehicle (EV) chargers.
Osprey’s charge points range from 50-175kW and are supplied from 100 percent renewable energy. This means drivers are supporting clean energy as well as clean transport.
Under the arrangement drivers can use the Paua electric fuel card solution to find, charge and pay for EV charging, extending Paua’s ability to make EV charging simpler for fleets. All costs are centrally billed enabling the fleet manager to control public charging use.
This roaming partnership has been implemented through an innovative technical integration between Paua’s platform and Osprey’s own market-leading back-office. The partnership is the latest development in Osprey’s strategy to be at the forefront of roaming in the UK.
Osprey has been voted as one of the UK’s most popular EV charging network by drivers of electric vehicles, in both the Zap-Map and WhatCar customer satisfaction surveys.
Business fleet drivers using the Paua electric fuel card solution will be able to access over 250 nationwide chargepoints operated by Osprey. This will enable fleets to expand beyond their depots with increasing confidence.
Ian Johnson, Osprey, said: “Paua and Osprey are aligned in our view that we need to simplify EV charging, and particularly for fleets. Paua’s electric fuel card solution is a pioneering approach to keeping invoicing and costs simple for fleets. We look forward to working with Paua delivering more decarbonised transport and cleaner air for the UK.”
Niall Riddell, Paua managing director, said: "We are delighted to be working with Osprey as we share a common ethos of collaboration and decarbonisation. By working together we can make it simpler for EV fleets to access public charging with our electric fuel card solution. “
Niall Riddell, Paua managing director, will be speaking at the upcoming EV Summit which is the world’s most significant gathering of emobility leaders. Now in its fourth year, the event explores how to advance battery-electric mobility for a cleaner and more sustainable future.
This year the EV Summit is placing the master narrative of decarbonisation at the centre of the event. It will feature 10 panels across two days, covering the significant business issues on the rapid transition to emobiity.
Niall Riddell will be speaking on the Smart Systems panel (in partnership with Greenflux) that will explore how smart systems are key to delivering transport decarbonisation plans.
Maurice Hochschild, Osprey chairman, will also be speaking at the EV Summit. He will be part of the Investment Opportunities panel (in partnership with Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner) that looks at how to open up investment opportunities in the transition to zero emission vehicles.
