You can hook up a 12V source to one of the maxi-fuses in the passenger fuse panel, and then use the fob.
There's also a 12V binding post on the underside of the rear LHS wheel arch liner, as well as a chassis ground stud.
With all electrical solutions, there's risk of damaging the ECU with voltage spikes, although most reports are from people trying to jump-start the vehicle.
For a purely mechanical solution, Lotus recommends busting out the sail panel vents to access the hatch hinge bolts. That seems expensive and extreme.
You can also get to the hinge bolts from beneath the car, but it requires removing the undertray, and using multiple extensions and u-joints.
