Octopus Energy integrates Ionity charging points

UK energy supplier and charging network operator Octopus Energy has entered into a roaming agreement with Ionity, which will see Ionity's HPC chargers in the UK and mainland Europe connected to Octopus Energy's Electric Juice Network (EJN).

Electric Juice Network users are to get a five per cent discount when charging at Ionity stations, Octopus Energy said in a statement, which would be £0.65/kWh at Ionity's standard price of £0.69/kWh.

The roaming agreement is not the first collaboration between the two companies: all of Ionity's HPC chargers in the UK are powered by Octopus renewable energy.

Zoisa North-Bond, director at Octopus Energy, calls the collaboration with Ionity a "fantastic milestone" as it offers EJN users more flexibility. "It makes long-distance travel easier and adds charging coverage in mainland Europe," North-Bond said, adding that EJN users will soon be able to charge at Ionity stations in Europe at the fixed price.

Germany is the first country to be mentioned here, and not just because Ionity is based in Munich: Octopus Energy has also recently opened an office in Germany.octopus.energy
