Allstar Business Solutions Limited has agreed a new partnership with Gronn Kontakt, an electric vehicle (EV) charging company owned by Statkraft – Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy.
The deal means that Allstar adds a further 47 charging sites and 110 charge points to the multi-branded Allstar One Electric network.
Paul Holland, managing director of UK Fuel at Fleetcor UK, said: “Clearly there has been some fantastic momentum gained in the electric vehicle movement in recent times.
“By partnering with Gronn Kontakt, we are helping UK fleets to make the switch to EV seamless, with increased convenience for charging sites as well as reducing range anxiety as we add more charging points to our growing network.”
The news of this eighth network addition comes following Allstar’s launch of its EV charging payment solution, the Allstar One Electric card.
The service was launched in answer to direct calls from fleet managers who want to move to a combination of all fuel types on one fuel card. It also compliments the existing ability to pay for hydrogen on the Allstar offering too.
Anthony Hinde, managing director at Gronn Kontakt, said: “We are pleased to work with Allstar in order to provide their users with the opportunity to seamlessly charge on our growing network.
“Allstar is clearly embracing the future of EVs within the fleet and therefore are a natural partner to Gronn Kontakt.”
Accepted at more than 90% of fuel sites across the UK, Allstar has in excess of 1.1 million cards in circulation across 38,000 businesses. The network encompasses around 7,700 sites nationwide.
