Electric Blue operates a public EV charging network, that looks to work closely with local authorities to install and maintain units in the most suitable locations. The network is run on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no subscription or connection fees.
Access is via an Electric Blue RFID card or app, and charges are on a simple pence per kWh used basis.

Electric Blue network access
Access to the Electric Blue network is made via RFID card or app. Payments are taken from a bank account linked to the user’s Electric Blue account.
Finding Electric Blue points on Zap-Map
All Electric Blue points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points operated by Electric Blue.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Accessing points on other networks
Electric Blue points are only accessible by Those signed up to the network, and there is no cross-network compatibility with other units. To use other network points, drivers must first follow the same processes as any other customer.
About Electric Blue
Electric Blue primarily aims to offer solutions to those looking at or operating electric taxis. The company not only installs charge points at key taxi sites for local authorities, it also offers rental EV taxis for licenced drivers to try before they commit to a plug-in cab.
With this taxi focus, the majority of Electric Blue’s charge points are rapid units, to keep fleets on the move. The chargers installed offer all three core rapid outlets – CCS and CHAdeMO 50 kW DC charging, and 43 kW Type 2 AC.
