GeniePoint is a national charging network, owned and run by Engie EV Solutions, operating rapid and fast EV charge points in England, Scotland, and Wales. The network is supermarket chain Morrisons’ EV charging partner, installing and operating charge points at a number of the retailer’s sites.
There is no cost to register for the network, and GeniePoint has a simple tariff scale, with only a few regional exceptions. Most charge points have a connection fee followed by a cost per kWh, though there are some free units available. The GeniePoint Network is accessed via mobile app or via RFID card. There is a fee for an Engie EV Services RFID card but customers can link up and use their own RFID card if preferred.

To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from a GeniePoint charge point, head to Zap-Map’s Public Charging Calculator. This allows you to select any new or used plug-in vehicle, and tailor elements – such as electricity cost and charge required – for personalised results.
How to use the GeniePoint network
Access to GeniePoint units is made via either RFID card or app. All units can be accessed via the Genie point app which is free and available to download, with a one off cost for the RFID card. Bank account details are registered to either set-up to charge fees too.
GeniePoint also allows their customers to register their own RFID cards to access the network’s points through the GeniePoint App.
