Good Energy Group PLC, the Chippenham-based 100 per cent renewable electricity supplier and energy services provider, has announced that Zap-Map has completed the nationwide rollout of its innovative new electric vehicle (“EV”) charging payment service with launch partner Engenie.
Good Energy first invested in Bristol-based Zap-Map in March last year. This summer it increased its equity stake in Zap-Map’s parent company, Next Green Car Ltd to 50.1 per cent.
Zap-Map, the UK’s leading EV mapping service, launched Zap-Pay in September, a new service that enables EV drivers to use a single app to pay for charging across different networks. Engenie, the UK wide rapid charging network, is the first network available on Zap-Pay. The rollout to over 150 sites nationwide has been completed on schedule and is available to all EV drivers.
Zap-Pay will be rolled out across UK networks in 2021, providing unique and unrivalled coverage across the whole country.
Juliet Davenport, CEO and Founder, Good Energy, said: “Zap-Pay has solved the problem faced by EV drivers of having to use multiple cards or apps to charge on different networks. Zap Pay has removed the hassle and provides a seamless charging experience, which is crucial to mass adoption. Now EV drivers can search, plan and pay all in one app.
“The completion of this nationwide rollout with a UK wide rapid charging network is the first step and I look forward to it progressing.”
