revive ev charging network guide

Revive is a regional public EV charging network, replacing Source West. With a large number of charge points due to be rolled-out in the next few years, funding from these comes from an OLEV grant, applied for by the Go Ultra Low West bid from local authorities in the region.

The network is built on GeniePoint’s back-office, meaning the same costs and access requirements apply. Customers use Revive on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no membership costs, and access is via web app or RFID card.

How much does the Revive network cost?


Membership cost: Free to register

Free web app – £9 fee for RFID card

Cost per charge: 39p/kWh for Type 2 units – 7kW & 22 kW

42p/kWh for rapid units

To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from a Revive charge point, head to Zapmap’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 Revive network

revive access

Access to Revive units is made via either RFID card or the web app. All units can be accessed via the web app, which is free and accessible from a standard web browser, with a one-off cost for the RFID card.

Revive allows any RFID card to be registered to access the network’s points, including TfL’s Oyster card and those from other networks.
