Octopus’ electric vehicle roaming service, Electric Universe, has over 300,000 charging points worldwide.

Electric Universe (formerly Electric Juice) enables drivers to access more than 300,000 public charging points across a range of brands through one card and one app, and the range of accessible charging points on Electric Universe is expanding internationally, the company said.

Over 450 charging networks have joined, including Ionity, Osprey, Mer, Fast Ned, Char.gy and EVBox.

Over the past two months, GeniePoint, M F G and ShellRecharge have joined the roaming service, adding hundreds of fast chargers to customers across the UK, with more to come this year.

Matt Davies, director of Octopus Energy’s Electric Universe, said: “For many, charging simplicity is the key to making the switch to an Electric Vehicle.

“The technology we’re building with Electric Universe means that the greener and cheaper option will also be the easiest option – positively transforming the Electric Vehicle charging experience for people across the globe today and in the years to come.”

The milestone comes as Electric Universe rolls out new product features to improve the Electric Vehicle charging experience, including an interactive map showing Electric Vehicle charging stations and their availability in more than 50 countries.

The company says the new feature will help avoid “range anxiety” and ease concerns about running out of battery before finding a charger.

According to the International Energy Agency’s Global Electric Vehicle Outlook 2021, the electric vehicle market will grow by 2030, with an estimated 230 million electric vehicles on the world’s roads.

According to the RAC’s 2022 report “The Road to Electric Vehicles – Charts and Figures”, the UK currently has around 465,000 electric vehicles and the government has ambitions to increase the number of charging stations tenfold by 2030.

In June 2022, Octopus Electric Vehicles announced a milestone of more than 1,500 companies joining its Salary Sacrifice Scheme in just over a year since its inception.
