Ibis and Novotels to gain charging points

Date: 16 December 2015   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

Electric chargepoint installer Chargemaster will supply charging stations to Ibis and Novotel hotels across the UK.

The scheme is being rolled at the start of next year, initially with 60 hotels receiving the points.

The points will be linked to the company's Polar network, and will consist of both 22kW and 7kW fast chargers, enabling electric cars to be charged in an hour.

Chargemaster said it expects local residents to charge their vehicles overnight, as well as hotel users.

"This is a major step forward in the provision of destination charging in the UK," said David Martell, Chargemaster CEO.

"Hotels are one of the obvious locations where EV drivers have a fundamental need for charging facilities and we are delighted to work with AccorHotels to achieve this."

He added: "We expect hotels to adopt electric vehicle charging as a customer service in the same way that they have provided wifi across the board."
