October 31, 2023 – EV Connect announced an agreement with Marriott International “to simplify [electric vehicle] charging for its properties and guests”.
EV Connect’s Ram Ambatipudi said hotels and resorts that provide charging facilities for EVs can attract guests who prioritize sustainability and carbon-neutral travel.
“This collaboration between EV Connect and Marriott marks a major advancement of the EV market’s expansion, and it has significant implications for the hospitality sector as a whole,” Ambatipudi added.
This is the first agreement of this type for Marriott, says EV Connect, and ensures that participating locations can provide reliable charging infrastructure at locations within Canada and the United States.
Marriott properties will have the ability to choose the charging hardware deployed on the open EV Connect platform, allowing them to scale EV charging needs for the needs of individual locations.
“Our guests increasingly expect EV charging stations at our properties, and this collaboration will help us meet rapidly evolving consumer demand and further the company’s sustainability goals,” said Andrew Bodziak, SVP Global Operations, Marriott International.
Established in 2010, EV Connect was acquired by Schneider Electric in 2022.
