EV Charging for Hotels and Hospitality Groups
How much does an electric vehicle (EV) charger cost? It’s the most common question we get from hotels and hospitality chains wishing to add EV charging to their amenities.
The cost of an EV charger seems like a simple question. But the answer is a long conversation that involves the identification of your specific use cases, your timeline, your goals, and your risks as a business.
Future Energy works as your partner to navigate these challenges and find the solution that is perfect for you.
You don’t start a restaurant business by asking about the cost of the refrigerator. Similarly, the price tag of EV charging equipment takes a back seat to questions that are more vital to your business:
- How does the EV charging experience align with and enhance your brand?
- What standards are necessary for all properties to offer the same EV charging experience to guests?
- How can your business use EV charging to build client loyalty?
- How can EV charging attract new customers and increase revenue?
Future Energy helps align your stakeholders so everyone evaluates and understands the risks involved with the EV charging experience. Then your hotel or hospitality brand can begin to benefit from all the rewards that EV charging solutions provide.
Shuttle Fleet Management
EV guest transportation services will be an important part of the hospitality industry’s brand mission. Many states are already instituting mandates regarding the inclusion of zero-emission vehicles as part of stop-and-go fleets.
This creates an operational challenge. Rather than the five-minute refueling time of a gas-powered vehicle, EV shuttles could have charge times up to 13 hours for a single vehicle.
Calculation of Port Count Needs
Each unique location has its own requirements for the number of EV chargers it will need, as well as the number of ports available per charger. This determination is a complex formula that depends upon guest behavior, booking volume, geography, demographic, and other factors.
Energy and Data Management for Hotels and Hospitality Industries
Property managers need to control energy use and network health of EV chargers. They also need to manage the ability to load shed, limit, and turn off charging by site or individual charger.
The use of software provides visibility into the use of EV chargers across your portfolio. Your company can use data from your EV chargers to measure and manage energy use, as well as make better business decisions.
To operate efficiently across multiple sites, it’s crucial to have visibility into the energy use, health, and success of all EV charging environments. Through networking software, you gain visibility that allows for reporting and management at every business level.
