Paua has announced that Fastned has agreed to establish a partnership in the UK. The partnership is part of Paua’s electric fuel card solution making public EV charging simpler for fleets.
Business drivers using the Paua electric fuel card solution will be able to access Fastned’s high power chargepoints both in the UK and across Europe.
These stations are compatible with all brands of electric cars. The superfast chargers add up to 300km of range in 15 minutes. Paua drivers will also have access to Europe’s most powerful electric vehicle charging hub in Oxford.
The recently announced Fastned station at Energy Superhub Oxford, in partnership with Oxford City Council, Pivot Power, Tesla and Wenea, will start with 38 chargers, and has the capacity to grow to deliver up to 10MW of charging power.
The deal is part of Fastned’s commitment to support easier payment for drivers across EV charging networks in the UK – which is a core part of Paua’s business model.
Under the arrangement, fleet drivers can use Paua’s mobile app to find, charge and pay at Fastned’s high power EV chargers across the UK – simplifying the charging process for them.
Paua Managing Director, Niall Riddell, said: “Fastned’s ethos and design to enable multiple high power chargers in locations across the country aligns with our desire to make EV charging easier. We are delighted to add Fastned and Europe’s most powerful EV charging hub to the Paua electric fuel card.”
This partnership reflects one of many collaborations that Paua has planned, to enable fleets a smoother and more positive driver experience as they transition to electric across the UK (and Europe).
Fastned owns and operates a network of over 150 EV charging stations across Europe and the UK. Its power sources are 100% renewable, with the electricity generated solely by wind and solar, including solar panels installed on the Fastned charging stations’ recognisable canopies.
