Calculating Port Count Needs
Guests who drive electric vehicles (EVs) will arrive at your hotel wanting to charge. To do so they will need you to accurately asses your port count needs. Increasingly, guests expect EV charging as a perk, similar to wireless internet.
Additionally, EV charging can generate additional revenue or act as a perk for guest loyalty programs.
The development of a strategy for EV charging within your business operations is a critical first step. After you determine your goals, you can work backward to figure out technology needs.
The choice of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) is a complex process that includes a number of factors that tie into your unique use case. The EVSE you select involves, in part, calculating port count needs to meet the expectations of guests.
Understanding EV Charging Basics
Similar to a gas pump, an EV charger can serve multiple drivers at once. Each piece of equipment can have two or more ports.
Meeting Financial Incentive Program Requirements
One of the first questions in calculating port count needs is what you “could”—not necessarily “should”—do as a business? You could, for instance, build your entire strategy around meeting financial incentive program requirements.
Enhancing the Guest Experience
The next round of questions involves determining the guest experience you hope to provide. To address everything that your guests may need or expect, Future Energy offers a complete EV charging environment called ChargeParcTM.
