Roaming agreement gives connection to rapid-charging network

GreenFlux has signed a roaming agreement with Osprey Charging Network, opening the UK rapid-charging network to nearly 90,000 EV drivers.

Osprey operates one of the largest fast-charging networks in the UK, with more than 300 chargers in over 180 locations.

As part of the roaming agreement, drivers served by each of GreenFlux’s EMSP customers can access all 300 chargers, and Osprey’s future charge points (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 says it can expand its service offering for fleets in the UK, by allowing drivers to access Osprey's chargers.

Dora Clarke, head of marketing and 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.

“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 offers EV charging software and services to charge point operators and e-mobility service providers.

Dan Pezim, product manager billing and 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.”

All Osprey chargers accept contactless payments, app payments, RFID payments and payment through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards and roaming partners. Every charging point is also powered by 100% renewable electricity.
