Liberty Charge, the UK’s fastest-growing electric vehicle (EV) charge point operator, has completed integration with Paua. This provides Paua users with access to Liberty Charge’s 650 charge point sockets.
Paua is a leading payment provider for businesses to access and benefit from electric vehicle charging. It provides access to the UK’s largest network of aggregated charge point networks. With over 20 networks aggregated into a network of 19,000-plus charge point connectors, drivers have a huge choice of charging solutions.
Liberty Charge provides a fully financed solution, including all charge point speeds, for publicly accessible EV charging. Its street-level micro hubs level the playing fields for those without access to driveway charging opportunities.
Business drivers will now be able to access these locations via the Paua card which is simply ‘tap-and-go’. This is backed up by the powerful mobile app that shows live status across the networks, as well as providing charging updates.
Liberty Charge recently highlighted the chronic under-resourcing of local authority EV infrastructure and associated plans. With only two-thirds of authorities with a plan and only 14 per cent with a dedicated EV infrastructure resource, it is clear that there are important challenges that remain to be addressed.
Neil Isaacson, Liberty Charge CEO, said: “Liberty Charge offers a truly end-to-end privately funded solution, including the full range of charging speeds. Working with Paua ensures that we cater for businesses as well as local residents. We are excited to see what this partnership can do to support British businesses’ transition to zero emissions transport.”
Niall Riddell, Paua CEO and co-founder, said: “Paua is delighted to be working with Liberty Charge on this journey. This continues to confirm Paua’s position as the largest roaming network in the UK for businesses. We look forward to supporting fleets of all shapes and sizes onto our roaming platform.”
Liberty Charge’s network is entirely renewably powered. This aligns with Paua’s ambition to ensure that all drivers receive 100 per cent renewable Paua whilst charging with the Paua card.
Earlier this month Co Charger and Paua, two leading electric vehicle charging solutions for UK fleet payments and community charging, announced today they will join forces. Together they will provide business drivers with single access to both base and route charging across almost 22,000 charge points nationwide.
