Radisson Hotel Group has formed a partnership with European charging firm, Allego, to deploy fast chargers at over 220 locations.
Allego will install and operate ultra-fast, fast and regular (AC) electric vehicle chargers at Radisson locations in Europe, starting with the UK and the Nordics before rolling out across Germany, France, the Netherlands and other countries.
Under the terms of the agreement, the cooperation targets that each European Radisson Hotel Group property can offer EV charging to its guests on-site by 2025.
The chargers will be available to all-electric vehicle brands, including the newest ultrafast charging stations where many EVs can receive a full charge in as little as 15 minutes.
Allego and Radisson will 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.
Chema Basterrechea, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Radisson Hotel Group said: “Radisson Hotel Group continues to be a leader in offering relevant guest experiences and setting the standard for global sustainability targets within the hospitality sector. Passenger EV sales are set to increase sharply in the next few years, rising from 3.1 million in 2020 to 14 million in 2025. The partnership with Allego highlights how Radisson Hotel Group is acting today for the future benefit of all, by offering our guests convenient and reliable green mobility capabilities across our hotel network in Europe.”
Mathieu Bonnet, CEO of Allego: “We are delighted to partner with the Radisson Hotel Group which represents a key partner for our pan-European EV charging network, supported by their attractive footprint and highly-traffic locations. This partnership will allow us to bring our reliable, seamless charging experience and our pan-European network to a larger group of EV drivers and tap into Radisson Hotel Group’s well-situated network of hotels across Europe, allowing guests to charge their EV in the most convenient way. 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.”
