Radisson Hotel Group has partnered with pan-European provider of electric vehicle charging solutions Allego, to rollout charging points at its European properties.
The group is targeting the provision of “ultra-fast, fast and regular” electric vehicle charging solutions at all of its 220-odd European hotels by 2025.
The rollout will begin in the UK and the Nordics, followed by countries including Germany, France, and the Netherlands.
The new Allego charging stations will be flagged on all main wayfinding apps including Waze, Google Maps and in-car navigation systems, with payment for charging sessions via credit, debit and charge cards for more than 150 European Mobility Service Providers.
Radisson said that it would work with Allego to “define the optimal charging infrastructure typology for each location, including ultra-fast and fast charging capabilities offered at Radisson’s hotels in high traffic locations, while regular (AC) charging will be available for guests staying overnight or attending meetings and events”.
Mathieu Bonnet, CEO of Allego said that “Radisson’s Green Mobility Mindset is fully aligned with our vision and commitment to a zero-emission environment and are pleased to be partnered with such a high-caliber company”, while Inge Huijbrechts, global senior vice president sustainability, security and corporate communications at Radisson Hotel Group, said:
“We are extremely proud to be working with Allego as we implement key initiatives in line with our corporate responsibility goals, including setting science-based emissions reduction targets aligned with the COP21 Paris Agreement.
“Over the past ten years, the Radisson Hotel Group saw a 30 per cent reduction in carbon emissions, and our Radisson Meetings continue to be uniquely 100 per cent carbon neutral, which collectively has enabled 30,300 tons of carbon offsets since 2019.
“This strong partnership across Europe will be a first step in positioning Radisson Hotel Group as the place to go for EV drivers and travellers with a Green Mobility Mindset.”
Earlier this year Premier Inn’s owner Whitbread announced a new partnership with utility firm Engie to roll out up to 1,000 electric driving charging points at its UK properties.
