Connected Kerb signs up to become new Zap-Pay partner
Good Energy (AIM: GOOD), the 100% renewable electricity supplier
and innovative energy services provider, announces its subsidiary
Zap-Map, the UK's leading EV mapping service, has signed Connected
Kerb as the latest charge point operator to join Zap-Pay, the
simple way to pay for EV charging across networks from within the
The two companies, having recently signed the Zap-Pay agreement,
have already begun work on the technical integration required to
set up Connected Kerb as a fully-fledged Zap-Pay partner.
Connected Kerb will become the eighth charge point operator to
be added to Zap-Pay. The charging network - which will have
deployed 1,000 chargers, with contracts signed for 10,000 this year
and secured for 30,000 more by the end of 2022 - was formed to
solve the problem of where to charge an electric vehicle for those
in the UK without off-street parking.
Zap-Map's mission is to accelerate the transition to sustainable
mobility for all people with reliable, affordable and accessible EV
Connected Kerb recently announced plans to install 190,000
public on-street EV chargers, worth up to GBP1.9bn, by 2030. The
unprecedented investment aims to revolutionise access to EV
charging for millions of drivers without off-street parking, and to
support mass-market charging for workplaces and fleets.
Zap-Map has secured new partnerships for thousands of charge
points to be delivered over the next 10 years, the majority of
which will be deployed across West Sussex and Kent.
Zap-Pay, which was launched last year with a mission to sign up
all the key networks across the UK, is the simple way to pay for EV
charging across networks from within the Zap-Map app.
As a single-app payment system that uses a credit or debit card
to pay for charging, Zap-Pay avoids the hassle of using multiple
apps across different networks. The payment service from Zap-Map
means that EV drivers can search, plan and pay for charging all
within one app.
With Connected Kerb's on-street coverage soon to become Zap-Pay
enabled, today's announcement marks an important step towards
convenient, trouble-free charging for those without access to
private, off-street charging.
Zap-Map and Connected Kerb look forward to making further
announcements on the partnership once the technical integration is
Nigel Pocklington, Chief Executive Officer of Good Energy,
"If the UK is to hit its stated emission targets, the
electrification of transport will be a crucial step on that
journey. Zap-Map continue to deliver solutions to help make the
transition to electric vehicles a seamless one.
Combining simple payment and affordable, innovative charging
options will be essential as more and more people switch to
electric vehicles. Zap-Map and Connected Kerb are perfectly
positioned to offer this, making the partnership an important one
for the electric vehicle drivers of the future."
Alex Earl, Commercial Director at Zap-Map, said:
"We're delighted to be working with Connected Kerb, whose
reliable, affordable and accessible EV charging solutions will help
to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles.
"As EVs increasingly enter the mainstream, we need to make
paying for charging as simple as possible. Connected Kerb's
solution combines power and data to deliver user-friendly charging
for cities and communities, and their ethos chimes perfectly with
"Having Connected Kerb on board with Zap-Pay is great news for
EV drivers - especially those without access to off-street parking
- who will benefit from a convenient and easy-to-use service."
Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said:
"We are really excited about our partnership with Zap-Pay, a
payment system that will help to provide a seamless charging
experience for our customers. In an age where users are swamped
with apps covering every activity of their daily life, we believe
that the integration of finding, planning and paying for charging
points within the same app will make EV charging hassle-free. This
is an essential part of enabling a full EV transition."
"As we scale up our charging point presence across the UK, it is
critical that our network can offer a reliable, easy-to-use and
secure payment system and we are delighted that Zap-Pay does just
