Connected Kerb has become the latest electric vehicle (EV) charging network to sign up to Zap-Map’s Zap-Pay service.
Zap-Pay allows drivers to pay for EV charging using a credit or debit card across different networks using the Zap-Map app, with this reducing the hassle of needing to use multiple apps across different networks.
Having recently signed the Zap-Pay agreement, the two companies have begun work on the technical integration required to set up Connected Kerb as a fully-fledged Zap-Pay partner. Once complete, Connected Kerb will be the eighth chargepoint operator to be added to Zap-Pay.
Other chargepoint operators signed up to Zap-Pay include ESB Energy, GeniePoint, char.gy and Motor Fuel Group, the latter of which opened its first all-electric vehicle charging station earlier this month.
Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said: "In an age where users are swamped with apps covering every activity of their daily life, we believe that the integration of finding, planning and paying for charging points within the same app will make EV charging hassle-free. This is an essential part of enabling a full EV transition.”
Connected Kerb is currently aiming to install 190,000 public on-street EV chargers by 2030, with this to require up to £1.9 billion of investment.
It is also working with the London Borough of Lambeth to demonstrate how affordable and accessible public EV charging infrastructure can be deployed to tackle EV inequality, with this project to act as a blueprint that can be adopted at scale by other boroughs, councils and cities across Britain.
