Developed by Scottish app developer Sanctus Media with the help of a £36,000 funding boost under the first allocation of SP Energy Networks’ Green Economy Fund – which has also been used to fund developments such as PeddleSMART’s e-cargo bikes – the WattsUp app has UK-wide coverage and locates electric vehicle rapid charging points with real-time information and live updates.

Scott Mathieson, network planning and regulation director, SP Energy Networks, said: “In creating the WattsUp app, Sanctus Media is supporting the electrification of transport, by allowing motorists to more easily navigate and access EV infrastructure. One of the public’s main concerns about electric vehicles is the availability of charging points. WattsUp shows users in real time where they can charge and when. This tool is invaluable in making low-carbon transport accessible to everyone.”
