rise of electric cars, recharging your vehicle at the hotel will be much easier, whether for guests or visiting professionals. Last year, the Radisson Group unveiled a partnership with Allego to develop a network of recharging solutions in all its hotels in Europe by 2025. More recently, as part of its 2022-2025 vision, Best Western’s French network announced its ambition to have 30% of parking spaces

in its 300 hotels equipped with charging stations.

Recently, Louvre Hotels, owners of the Campanile, Kyriad, Première Classe and Golden Tulip brands, also joined this trend. Through its Weboost start-up, created internally to provide hoteliers with solutions to make their under-utilized spaces more profitable, the group has signed an agreement with the charging station operator Electra. Its objective: to deploy ultra-fast charging hubs on the hotel group’s sites. By the end of 2022, 20 hubs, i.e. more than 80 charging points, should be installed in hotels located in dense urban areas.

These hubs will be accessible to everyone, from hotel guests to private travelers and cab and VTC drivers, who will be able to take advantage of the hotel’s services while their vehicle is recharging. ” Hotels, a central business in cities and suburbs, are a key place for the ecological and societal transition,” said Marie Nonell, the group’s CSR director. ” This ambitious project will make it possible to bring ultra-fast charging to the heart of cities, in addition to that currently installed on highways

,” explained Aurélien de Meaux, CEO of Electra.

The charging stations proposed by Electra have a power of 150 to 300 kW. The charge costs 0.44 euro/kWh TTC. It can be paid via the application, a charging pass or a bank card. The app also directs drivers to the nearest charging points to reserve their spot.

On June 16, 2022, Les Rencontres Flotauto Paris, held at the Paris Event Center, will showcase the solutions of 250 exhibitors specializing in professional vehicle management and low-carbon mobility, including some 40 exhibitors specializing in charging stations.
