Paua creates EV charging business network

Paua has established a network of 10,000 electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints for fleets to access with centralised billing.

The network includes chargers from Osprey, Fastned, Ionity, Connected Kerb, Char.gy, and Mer.

Paua provides a single interface for organisations and fleets to pay for EV charging, obtain receipts, and claim VAT refunds.

Niall Riddell, CEO and co-founder of Paua, said: “We’ve now developed the UK’s largest business network for electric vehicle chargepoints. The reason for our success comes down to the fact that we provide a great value-add for our customers, as we make EV fleet admin simple.

“We provide a great way for the UK’s public chargepoint networks to connect with historically under-served business customers. We’re delighted to be welcoming our new investors, who believe in our vision to support business transition to electric motoring.”

A 2021 survey by Paua found that 40% of fleets avoid public charging, with government research indicating that 54% of future EV drivers view public charging as a barrier. By enabling fleet and business adoption of EV, Paua says it is providing an essential service in helping the UK transition from petrol and diesel vehicles ahead of the phase-out of these fuels in 2030.
