GreenFlux, a leading provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging software and services, has signed a roaming agreement with Osprey Charging Network. This will open the UK rapid-charging network to nearly 90,000 electric vehicle drivers.
The agreement will be a key enabler of cross-channel charging across Europe and the UK, with Osprey being among the first major UK networks to open its chargers at this scale to drivers from mainland Europe.
Osprey, who were rated in the top three electric car charger providers in the UK in a Zap-Map survey, operates one of the largest fast-charging networks in the UK. The company has more than 300 chargers in over 180 locations.
Their charging network spans across the entire country, from Cornwall in the south-west to Perthshire in Scotland. Osprey’s charging stations are co-located with food and beverage and retail venues in towns and along major motorways and A-roads.
As part of the roaming agreement, drivers served by each of GreenFlux’s EMSP customers can seamlessly access all 300 chargers, and Osprey’s future charge points, which are set to double in 2022, using their usual apps and charge cards.
One GreenFlux customer benefiting from the agreement is DKV Mobility, a leading full-service emobility service provider for commercial vehicle fleets across Europe. With this agreement, DKV Mobility can expand its service offering for fleets in the UK, by allowing drivers to access Osprey’s chargers.
Dora Clarke, Head of Marketing & Communications at Osprey, said: “One of Osprey’s core values is inclusivity for all drivers and part of the way we achieve this is through being an open-access network.
“We believe by facilitating roaming with like-minded partners such as GreenFlux we can play a leading role in the electrification of transport – by giving fleet operators, companies who cross borders, and long-distance drivers, a charge point network they can rely on away from home.”
Dan Pezim, Product Manager Billing & Roaming at GreenFlux, said: “The partnership with Osprey is the latest in a series of international connections, and an important step towards increasing our roaming coverage in the UK.
“With this agreement, we enhance the value provided to our platform customers, and help make EV charging more convenient for drivers.”
