PoGo and Paua to improve EV charging experience for fleet drivers

PoGo has partnered with Paua to give fleet drivers hassle-free access to PoGo’s rapidly expanding network of EV chargers.

The partnership means fleet drivers can quickly and easily find a PoGo charge point and pay for their EV charging session using the Paua app and charge card.

Paua is supporting businesses making the transition to an electric fleet by simplifying the EV charging process and takes advantage of its technology to ensure 100% renewable supplies to all of its network partners. The Paua platform tracks all charging sessions made by a fleet’s drivers and provides a single monthly VAT receipt.

Paua’s new roaming agreement with PoGo, means its fleet users will have access to an additional 100+ charge point connectors across the UK – with many more locations coming on board as the UK’s fastest growing EV charging network continues to expand.

Stuart Douglas, Managing Director of PoGo, says collaborations like this are key to EV adoption: “Paua is playing a crucial role in supporting fleet operators in making the switch to electric, and we are pleased to be part of this powerful solution. The aim for PoGo is to enhance the charging experience for EV drivers by eliminating the inconvenience of long charging times by providing best-in-class rapid and ultra-rapid charging, which aligns with Paua’s own mission for businesses.

“We know first-hand, from our experience as a business with an electric fleet, just how important charge point availability, convenience and reliability is. PoGo ticks all these boxes,” Stuart says, “and with our growth plans fleet drivers will have more and more places to find a PoGo charge point.”

Niall Riddell, CEO & Co-Founder of Paua says PoGo’s approach to building an EV charging network is perfect for EV fleets: “Paua drivers seek the widest network of national charge points, and the variety of locations at which PoGo chargers can be found – from strategic roads to prime locations in rural regions – extends our ability to meet customers’ needs for charging. PoGo’s use of 100% renewable energy, combined with easy access to its sites, will also make the PoGo network a real hit with our drivers.”

PoGo, which launched six months ago with the aim of creating a network of over 2,000 ultra-modern, ultra-rapid charging stations by 2027, is already rolling out new sites across the country. It has locations secured for 600 new high-power chargers and expects 450 of these to be live by the end of 2024.

PoGo’s partnership with Paua follows a similar agreement with the roaming service Octopus Electroverse, as well as a partnership with Zapmap to give EV drivers visibility of all PoGo charge points on Zapmap’s website and app.
