Osprey Charging has hit a new milestone in its expansion plans, as it successfully installed the same number of charge points in Q1 2023 as it did for the whole of 2022. 

In a 10 week period between January and March 2023, Osprey managed to install and make live 142 new rapid EV charge points, which is the same number as it installed throughout the whole of 2022. Even more impressively, the network expansion isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Osprey has confirmed that it plans to install and make live another 50 chargers in April. 

The rapid pace in which Osprey has grown its network has seen it become the fourth largest GB-wide public rapid charging network, with 536 rapid chargers nationwide. It hopes to grow that number even further in 2023, with plans on eclipsing 1000 by year end. 

Ian Johnston, the CEO of Osprey Charging Network, commented, “I’m delighted that the deployment of Osprey’s national infrastructure of EV charging stations is at full speed, with the whole team working tirelessly to bring new chargers live at this unprecedented rate. Looking ahead, we are set to continue this pace of roll-out and deliver on our business plan of achieving four times as many chargers in 2023 than we did in 2022.

“Now that we have established a broad network, our focus is to continue to expand but also provide a high quality of experience for EV drivers all over the country. Over the next two years we will invest over £100 million expanding our nationwide public charging network, establishing the much-needed national infrastructure that drivers can trust and rely on.

“We look forward to working with our partners to help bring this strategy to life, delivering our strong development pipeline of sites with a breadth of landlords, as well as on our own land.”
