Osprey are building the EV charging network of the future.

We have a simple focus: to build the best UK charging network with the latest technology, easy-to-use, and accessible chargers in premium locations.

Quality: we choose the best sites – accessible and safe – with the potential to have multiple chargers now and in the future.

Technology: we are independent of all manufacturers and install the optimal rapid charger for each site.

Funding: we fully fund a turnkey supply and installation solution to charging, so it is in our interest to create a first-class charging experience that customers want to use.

Income: we ensure that you earn as much income as possible from the EV chargers on your site by paying above market rates and driving footfall.

Experience: we set a very high benchmark and have a proven track record.

One of our business development team will be in touch to discuss your mandate, ambitions and site(s). We take care of all the legwork: quantitatively assessing suitable charging locations, resolving any planning or property applications, and securing and paying for a direct grid connection.

The Osprey Charging Experience

We’re looking to invest in busy council owned carparks, supporting Clean Air Strategy and decarbonisation. 100% funding available for installation and operation.

  • Council receives an ongoing, long-term income up to £100,000 over lease term
  • Space-efficient rapid chargers can be in carparks or on-street
  • Increase visitor dwell time, support local businesses and residents
  • Normal contactless payment and 24/7 driver helpline for best customer experience

Does your area offer the Osprey Charging Experience?

We’re building a nationwide network of public rapid charge points that are accessible to all drivers.

Rolling out EV infrastructure to support low-emission, low-polluting vehicles is a major way in which local authorities can help combat both air pollution and climate change.

We choose the best sites – accessible, well-located and safe – future-proofed, with the potential to have multiple chargers now and in the future.

Who do we work with?

We work with businesses of all types and sizes to offer EV charging for customers, fleets etc. We work with local authorities to provide EV charging on-street, off-street, in urban, destination or on-route locations on both public and private land.

Does Osprey Charging have 24/7 driver support?

Absolutely. The number for our 24/7 helpline is on the front of every chargepoint, and our team can start, stop and re-set charges remotely. Our customer support team can be reached on 0330 0101 757

How do drivers find Osprey Charging chargepoints?

Osprey charger locations are shown on all major map and charging apps with live availability shown on ZapMap, WattsUp, Waze, Google Maps and in the in-car satnavs of most major car manufacturers.

How is Osprey Charging funded?

Osprey Charging has secure infrastructure fund backing, which allows us to fully fund the installation and operation (including all customer service and maintenance) of public rapid chargers, at no cost to the host landlord.

What is the process for installing rapid EV chargers?

The first step is to have a conversation about your portfolio or specific site(s) with our business development team (you can request a callback here). We then use our proprietary site selection model to assess your preferred sites and agree on a list with you. Our Operations team will apply for a grid connection and put together a site design. Once you’re happy with the site plans, the lease is signed and we manage the planning and installation from there.

How long does it take to install rapid EV chargepoints?

There is no ‘standard’ timeline for charger installation. We have an experienced team in place to make the processes as efficient as possible, but parameters beyond our control within the legal or connection process can hold things up. From signing the lease, we aim to build and energise sites within 6-8 weeks.

Can the chargepoints have council street furniture branding?

Osprey Charging are open to discussions with partners about charger visual branding, and will always respect your site aesthetics and experience. We have standard Osprey Charging ‘wraps’ which can host partner logos, and for large portfolios can consider a bespoke, partner-branded wrap.
