Predominantly focused in the North West, the LiFe network is operated by Liverpool-based Franklin Energy.
The LiFe taxi network comprises a small number of taxi-only charge points in and around Sheffield, which can be accessed with the PAYG LiFe app or RFID card.

To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from a LiFe taxi-only 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.
LiFe taxi network access
Drivers are required to send a copy of their taxi license to email@example.com in order to be granted access to taxi-only charge points.
Once approved, access to the LiFe taxi network is via the PAYG LiFe app or RFID card – both of which are free to download/acquire. Payment is either taken from a credit or debit card linked to the customer’s account after the charge, or credit can be added to the account beforehand.
Finding LiFe taxi points on Zap-Map
All LiFe taxi points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network and access filters. These can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and display only those points operated by LiFe that are taxi-only.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Franklin Energy, the firm behind both the LiFe network and the LiFe taxi network, is based in Liverpool and provides charge points to both domestic and commercial customers. On top of that, the company runs the LiFe network.
