From Summer 2022, ev.energy customers will be able to use over 5,700 public charging stations across the UK with the support of trusted partner, Allstar Business Solutions. Providers on the Allstar network include Alfa Power, Allego, ESB Energy, Hubsta, LiFe, GeniePoint, Mer, Osprey, Plug-N-Go, Source London.

The new service is a big step towards addressing the often-quoted problem of public charging requiring a myriad of cards. By taking an open-connection approach, ev.energy users will be able to activate their public charging using a combination of RFID card and/or in-app experience (subject to network technology). Not only will EV drivers benefit from a consolidated view of their home and public charging energy cost, carbon savings and usage across a 24-hour, one month or one year view, but they will also be able to earn free public charges by participating in ‘smart charging’ - allowing ev.energy to manage their home charging to support the heavily strained power grid. ev.energy customers will be able to cash in their smart charging reward points in exchange for free charges on the public charging network. At a time when cost-of-living is rising, this will allow drivers to see the true cost of their vehicle charging and take advantage of cheaper costs on the public charging network, all in one place.

The new service will also provide drivers with helpful in-app notifications on charging progress, including charging interruption or parking overstay warnings to avoid some of the key charging problems currently experienced by EV drivers.

“Our drivers tell us that public charging is fiendishly complex, and not integrated with home charging” said Nick Woolley, CEO and Co-Founder of ev.energy. “We wanted to help them, and saw an opportunity to bring together and simplify home and public charging. We’re delighted to be extneding ev.energy outside the home, helping drivers simplify and save on their charging, wherever and whenever they charge.”

Aside from rewards and better insights and data, ev.energy will also enable more service notifications to update EV drivers on their current state of charging, such as charging interruptions or warnings of overstaying parking allocations, straight to their phone.

Trials have been conducted in April and May, with an extensive waiting list is already in place via their website.
