Osprey Charging celebrates 1,000 public rapid EV charger milestone

Osprey Charging has announced it now has over 1,000 live public EV chargers available for use by the UK’s electric vehicle (EV) drivers. 

This expansion milestone builds on the tremendous success of 2023, which saw Osprey grow in scale by 150% in the space of just 12 months.

With more than 1,000 charge points now active, Osprey is the third largest public rapid-charging network according to Zapmap statistics.

In the past 12 months, Osprey has launched flagship hubs in key locations such as Devon, Cumbria, Essex, Dunbartonshire, Carmarthenshire and Nottinghamshire. 

Osprey was recognised as a ‘Driver Recommended Network’ by Zapmap for a fourth time in our latest annual charging survey.

Osprey charge points are designed to be easy to use with simple payment options for drivers, including contactless and via Zap-Pay - a simple payment solution enabling you to search for charge points, plan your route, and pay for EV charging all in one app.

Ian Johnston, Osprey Charging CEO, commented:

 “With over 1,000 public rapid EV chargers now available on the Osprey network, we are providing the essential infrastructure that drivers and industry are calling for to support the electric vehicle revolution. The rate of growth is matched by the highest standards of service offered to our drivers, through a reliable and easy to use nationwide network.

“Recent findings from the House of Lords have highlighted the need to speed up the roll-out of charging infrastructure by tackling delays for funding and planning regulations, as well as the equalisation of VAT rates between domestic and public charging. Both recommendations are welcomed by Osprey as they will ultimately help deliver an improved customer experience for EV drivers.”

Thanks to a live data partnership between Osprey and Zapmap, users of the Zapmap app and web map can access live status and availability information at any time, making planning for charging stops even easier.
