Osprey Charging now has over 1,000 live public EV chargers available for use by the UK’s EV drivers.

This expansion milestone builds on the tremendous success of 2023, which saw Osprey grow in scale by 150% in just 12 months. With more than 1,000 charge points now active, Osprey ranks as the third largest public rapid charging network, according to Zap Map statistics.

In the past 12 months, Osprey has launched flagship hubs in key locations such as Devon, Cumbria, Essex, Dunbartonshire, Carmarthenshire, and Nottinghamshire. These hubs are not only strategically positioned but also offer accessible, high-powered, and reliable public EV charging. As a testament to Osprey's dedication to meeting the increasing EV charging demands, the accelerated growth witnessed in 2023 has seamlessly extended into the first months of 2024, with Osprey launching more chargers than any other network this year.

With hundreds of locations spread across both rural and urban locations throughout the UK, Osprey chargers have an outstanding reliability rate of 99%, while its straightforward charging experience has seen Osprey recognised as a ‘Driver Recommended Network’ by Zap Map for a fourth time. At the 2023 Transport and Energy awards, Osprey was named Best EV Charging Network, shortly followed by winning the Chargepoint Network of the Year at the 2023 Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs).

Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging, 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 in 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.”
