The Competition and Markets Authority expects the U.K. to require a minimum of 280,000 to 480,000 public charging points by 2030 to ensure accessibility. Tritium’s 250 new chargers will contribute to the achievement of this goal

EV chargers developer Tritium DCFC Limited will supply over 250 rapid chargers to the Osprey Charging Network, which is among the fastest-growing rapid EV charging points networks in the U.K.

The Competition and Markets Authority expects the U.K. to require a minimum of 280,000 to 480,000 public charging points by 2030 to ensure accessibility. Tritium’s 250 new chargers will contribute to the achievement of this goal.

The new chargers will expand the network by 50%.

Tritium CEO Jane Hunter pointed out that more than 190,000 new electric vehicles were sold in the UK last year, a 76-percent increase over 2020.

Osprey CEO Ian Johnson praised the quality of Tritium fast chargers.

 “As an independent charge point operator, we have the freedom to work with the very best hardware companies so that we can provide the very best experience for our customers,” said Ian Johnston, Osprey CEO. “We have already installed Tritium rapid chargers at many of our most popular locations, including sites with improved accessibility and at our South London high-power charging hub. We are excited to add the dynamic load-balancing PKM chargers to our rapidly expanding UK network, optimising charger output across a number of cars plugged in simultaneously and ultimately improving driver experience. Tritium is an instrumental partner in helping Osprey deliver on our goal of creating a high quality, inclusive, reliable charging network that’s worry free and accessible for all.”

Earlier, Osprey and another EC charging software and services firm, GreenFlux, signed a roaming agreement which opened the Osprey network to nearly 90,000 EV drivers. It allowed cross-Channel charging in Europe and the UK.

Drivers served by GreenFlux can can access all Osprey chargers both installed and added in the future.  

One of the GreenFlux customers benefitting from the agreement is DKV Mobility, an e-mobility service provider for commercial vehicle fleets across Europe. With this agreement, DKV Mobility can expand its service offering for fleets in the UK, by allowing commercial drivers to access Osprey’s chargers.
