Electric Vehicle Charging Points Across 
Liverpool City Region

Charging point

Recharge is the Liverpool City Region Electric Vehicle Charging Point network.  The posts installed have been part funded by Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and Local Growth Deal Funding (LGF).  The network of charging points at key locations across the LCR region have been installed with the aim of creating a vibrant low carbon economy in the Liverpool City Region.

Recharge aims to address the barriers which stop more people from using Electric Vehicles (EVs) by providing publically available charging points located near to shops, leisure centres and at places of work.  

Recharge aims to provide and promote a clean, low emission transport system which is resilient to changes to climate and oil availability.

Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, said: “I very much welcome this move. It is a big step forward in making the city region greener and cleaner as it will help reduce pollution and improve air quality.”

Liverpool City Region E-Mobility Strategy

The Liverpool City Region has come together to develop a strategy to speed the uptake of electric vehicles across the region. The E-Mobility strategy includes an overview of activity relating to electric vehicles from across the UK and provides recommendations for deliverable projects, which can be delivered independently or as a joint package of activities, by the City Region working together or each local authority separately.


The projects target the areas where a transfer to electric vehicles has the biggest impact, due to journey types, frequencies and visibility. The deployment of electric vehicles across the region works in parallel to the planned roll out of recharging infrastructure (Recharge), as well as incorporating planned and existing transport initiatives such as car and bike clubs.

How much does it cost to charge an EV?
