Osprey Charging has signed a new roaming agreement with European EV charging platform GreenFlux, in what it has said is a UK first.
As part of this roaming agreement, drivers served by each of GreenFlux’s e-mobility service provider customers can access all of Osprey’s current 300 chargers, as well as any future chargepoints, using their usual cards and apps.
The agreement will open up the UK rapid-charging network to nearly 90,000 EV drivers, GreenFlux said.
Dora Clarke, head of marketing and communications at Osprey said: “Opening up our charging points to European drivers on this scale with GreenFlux is a UK first and we’re proud to be doing it.”
GreenFlux gave the example of e-mobility service provider for commercial vehicle fleets, DKV Mobility, which it said can now expand its service offering for fleets in the UK by allowing drivers to access Osprey’s chargers.
GreenFlux said its platform customers leverage its roaming services to quickly expand their customer and geographic reach, monetise their business models and deliver "outstanding charging experiences".
"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,” says Dan Pezim, product manager billing and roaming at GreenFlux.
In September, it announced plans to develop 150 rapid EV charging hubs over the next four years in a £75 million programme.
