Parking platform, JustPark, is to make more than 800 EV charging points available on the Zap-Map platform from June 2021, with new locations continually added thereafter.
The new partnership between JustPark and Zap-Map will add a significant number of new residential points to the map.
Currently Zap-Map has more than 1200 Zap-Home points available and the addition of the JustPark chargers will take the number to over 2000.
Visible to more than 150,000 monthly Zap-Map users, EV drivers will be able to search for JustPark chargers close to them, then pre-book and pay via the Zap-Map app to ensure they have a guaranteed space and charger.
Anthony Eskinazi, founder and CEO of JustPark, said, “It’s understandable that EV ownership today is heavily weighted towards people lucky enough to have their own driveway to charge on.
“We need charging solutions that allow all EV drivers to easily and reliably recharge their car, and not force them to only rely on city centre chargers.
“By hosting our community of charge point owners on Zap-Map, we are ensuring that as many people as possible have access to reliable, affordable EV charging.”
Ben Lane, co-founder and CTO of Zap-Map added, “The public charging network is expanding rapidly, but there is a real need for community charging closer to home.
“This new partnership with JustPark means EV drivers can more easily share their home chargers, giving Zap-Map users even more choice in finding a suitable charger when visiting new places away from home, or in their own backyard.”
