The usage of an external mod is necessary for powering electric lifts.
Lifts are machines that can transform blocks in front of it in a platform that can move entities vertically. They can be controlled used redstone, lift buttons, and screens.
Screens and other stuff
A screen is a simple machine that provides a simple user interface for interacting with lifts placed in your world.
The Screen Charger is a simple block that can wirelessly charge linked screens.
A Lift Detector is a simple block that emits a Redstone signal when a linked lift has its platform.
The Lift Button is a button that can wirelessly call a linked lift.
I strongly advise the usage of a mod like RoughlyEnoughItems for viewing recipes.
