Dacorum Council has selected Osprey Charging to help bring a major boost to the borough's EV charging provision, including in Markyate's Hicks Road.

Osprey will install 30 rapid and ultra-rapid EV chargers at eight public car parks in Tring, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Markyate, and Kings Langley and will be 100 per cent funded by Osprey, with no local council funding required.

The chargers are easy to use and designed with simple payment for drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

Furthermore, Osprey’s in-house software, Osprey Iris, enables market-leading levels of reliability and innovation in EV roaming.

Cllr Adrian England, deputy leader of the council and portfolio holder for climate action and opportunity, said: “Tackling climate change is one of our six corporate priorities, and ensuring the residents of Dacorum have access to EV charging is central to this.

"Rapid and ultra-rapid charging provision is expensive and so the 100 per cent funding from Osprey Charging is particularly important for us; this investment into our area requires no local council funding."
