World EV Day: Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice Network hits 100,000 chargers milestone
- Octopus Energy Electric Juice Network (EJN) customers can now access 112,000 charging points across the UK, Europe and beyond
- Extensive coverage includes UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, and has even started to reach Malaysia and Morocco
- Adding more volume to the network comes hot on the heels of a partnership with JustPark, which aims to help businesses decarbonise with electric fleet charging
- EJN simplifies electric car charging on the go, using one card, one app, and adding all costs onto a single bill, helping drivers make the switch to electric power
London, September 9th 2021 - EnTech pioneer Octopus Energy has hit a milestone of over 100,000 electric vehicle charging points on the Electric Juice Network (EJN) in just over a year since its launch.
Customers of Electric Juice have access to a wide range of charge point operators, including global names such as NewMotion, IONITY, Has.to.be, Mer (Statkraft) and Greenflux, plus UK brands Osprey, Char.gy, Franklin, Hubsta, Alfa, and many more - who all joined the EJN in its first year.
Customers aren’t the only ones benefiting either. After the announcement of a recent partnership with JustPark, the Electric Juice Network is being made available to fleets looking to electrify their vehicles, through either partner networks or dedicated private charging stations situated less than five minutes walk from drivers houses.
Drivers of electric vehicles will now be able to pay with their Octopus Energy account across the participating charging networks, with all costs appearing on a single bill. As further networks are added to the roaming service, users of the EJN will soon be able to access many more charging stations worldwide. Currently the EJN is active in over 25 different countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands amongst others, and is even beginning to have coverage as far away as Malaysia and Morocco.
With their increasingly global charging platform Octopus Energy offers a solution to a long-standing problem for EV drivers, who have criticised the lack of a standardised way of paying as every charging network requires a different card or app.
Zoisa North-Bond, CEO of Electric Juice, comments: “It’s a testament to the team behind it that the EJN has gone from 0 chargers to over 100,000 in just over a year since we launched, and we’re over the moon to be able to share this milestone on World EV Day. We already have a range of great partners on the network, but we’re always on the hunt for even more to join and help create better access to charging infrastructure, which in turn makes it easier for petrol car drivers to consider electric vehicles. Our EJN users can already do significant cross country road trips throughout Europe, and someday soon they might be able to travel by Electric Juice anywhere in the world.”
The EJN also recently won ‘Best EV Innovation’ at Driving Electric Awards 2021, signalling the first time an energy retailer won the award.

About Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice Network
Launched in May 2020, the Electric Juice Network (EJN) was Octopus Energy’s answer to the frequent complaint that Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers need many different apps and cards to use the many different brands of EV charging stations. The EJN consolidates all payment and access needs through one simple card and login.
EV drivers across Europe can now access over 100,000 different charge points with their card and get all the payments added on to their monthly energy bill, whether they’re with Octopus Energy or not. In its first year, the EJN has taken on eight new partners including Newmotion, Char.gy and Osprey (formerly Engenie) and won ‘Best EV Innovation’ at Driving Electric Awards 2021.
