SSE Energy Solutions is today (Monday 31st) delighted to announce it has agreed a deal with leading electric vehicle (EV) fleet fuel card innovators, Paua, to enable their customers to use SSE’s expanding EV charging network.
This agreement means that Paua drivers will be able to benefit from the growing network of SSE ultra-fast charging hubs and start the charge with a simple tap of their Paua card.
The news comes just days after SSE Energy Solutions announced a major deal with M7 Real Estate to install charging hubs at 20 locations they manage on behalf of global commercial real estate investor, asset manager and business builder, Oxford Properties (Oxford).
SSE plans to open 300 of its own ultra-fast charging hubs across the UK and Ireland over the next five years and is committed to making the charging experience efficient and simple. The partnership with Paua will ensure charging stops are consistent and effortless. The fuel card can already be used at the first of SSE’s hubs on Glasgow’s Castlebank Street which went live in September.
A recent survey of 1,500 EV users by consumer group Which? found that 61 per cent have suffered difficulties making payments.
Paua created their electric fuel card to simplify the process for businesses, making the best use of the technology built into EVs and smart phones and doing away with the need for time consuming receipt claims from credit card payment processes.
Paua is the largest EV roaming network for business drivers in the UK bringing power everywhere to leading fleet brands.
Paua operates the largest electric vehicle (EV) roaming network for business drivers in the UK, with contracts providing fleets with access to 20,000 public charge point connectors across the nation. Founded in 2020, Paua aims to solve the problem of EV charging for businesses through providing a single interface for organisations and fleets to pay for EV charging, obtain receipts and claim VAT refunds. Paua now counts over two dozen network partners.
