Major Updates

There are more than 27,000 public charge point connectors across the UK, one of the biggest networks in Europe.

The West of England contains approximately 150 public use charge points and this is growing, thanks to the Go Ultra Low West project which will be installing over 120 new charge point connections by March 2021. You can use this interactive map to find your nearest public charging point, wherever you are in the country. No convenient charge point? You can suggest a location or look at grants towards a charging point for home or work.

Revive is a network of electric vehicle charge points located in the West of England (including Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, and North Somerset) set up by the local councils.

Registration is free and there are no subscription costs – you just pay for the electricity you use. Go to revive charging to register and start using Revive charge points.

Revive operates on the same platform as the national Geniepoint network, so users can also access GeniePoint chargers.

Once registered, you can access charge points using the website on your mobile phone, or order an RFID card or fob. You also have the option to register your own RFID card or fob if you do not wish to purchase one. For more information and other FAQs, visit revive charging.

Revive will include charge points that are currently part of the Source West network.

Existing Source West and Charge Your Car members can continue to use the charge points as normal until they have been switched.

Which charge points are being switched and when?

Source West public charge point sites will be upgraded and switched to Revive, starting in December 2019.
