GreenFlux, the Dutch provider of EV charging software and services, has signed a roaming agreement with Osprey Charging Network, in what is expected to be a key enabler of cross-border charging across Europe and the UK
In so doing Osprey, which operates one of the largest fast-charging networks in the UK, claims to be the first major UK network to open its chargers at scale to drivers from mainland Europe.
As part of the roaming agreement, drivers served by any of GreenFlux’s customers, that is organisations – or e-mobility service providers (EMSPs) – that offer charging infrastructure and take care of billing, can seamlessly access Osprey’s charge points using their usual apps and charge cards.
“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,” says Dora Clarke, Head of Marketing & Communications at Osprey. “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.”
One GreenFlux customer benefiting from the agreement is DKV Mobility, a leading full-service e-mobility service provider for commercial vehicle fleets across Europe. With this agreement, DKV Mobility will expand its service offering for fleets in the UK, by allowing drivers to access Osprey’s chargers.
“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,” says Dan Pezim, Product Manager Billing & Roaming at GreenFlux. “With this agreement, we enhance the value provided to our platform customers, and help make EV charging more convenient for drivers.”
