The Osprey public EV charging network has a simple focus – pay-as-you-go rapid charging. As Zapmap’s launch partner, Osprey’s charge points were the first to be Zap-Pay enabled, allowing Zapmap users to pay for charging at more than 600 rapid chargers through the app.

The network became Osprey in October 2020, having previously been known as Engenie. No membership is required, with drivers using Zap-Pay, contactless bank card payment or the Osprey app on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Access to the Osprey network can be made via Zap-Pay, with payment through a credit or debit card. EV drivers will also be able to track live status when away from the vehicle, charging history, and access VAT receipts across networks, ensuring control and saving time. Alternatively, a contactless credit or debit card or the Osprey app can be used to access and pay for charging.

About Osprey

Osprey is the launch partner for Zap-Pay, Zapmap’s simple payment service available through the Zapmap app. The British company has a UK-wide network of rapid charge points across the country, located at strategically important locations such as city centres and near major trunk roads.

The network was set up and operated as Engenie until October 2020, when it rebranded for greater clarity within the EV charging network.
