goEgoNetwork, an electric vehicle charging infrastructure startup based out of Pune, will install EV charging stations at VITS-Kamats Group hotels throughout the country as part of an initial agreement, according to a statement.
According to goEgoNetwork, charging stations can charge all brands of electric vehicles. They are also accessible via the goME app which gives owners real-time notifications about charging status.
It said that the installations will give a boost to the country’s EV charging infrastructure. This comes when both central and state governments are focused on the adoption of electric vehicles across many industries, including the hospitality industry.
“goEgo is excited about its new collaboration in the hospitality sector. These kinds of tie-ups will help reduce the range anxiety among the EV owners and help build the EV charging infrastructure,” said Dheeman Kadam, co-founder and chief marketing officer of goEgoNetwork.
He explained that a charging station installed on the hotel premises by a business owner will increase footfall and provide an opportunity for additional revenue.
Today, the travel and hospitality industries are at an important crossroads in EV charging. Many big players understand that having a charging station on their guest amenity list in the next few years could impact decisions to book and stay in their hotel.
“By installing EV charging stations within our premises, hospitality industries like the VITS Hotels and Resorts are not only building trust in our guests, but they are also helping build the EV charging infrastructure in the country. We are glad to be partnering with goEgoNetwork for this,” said Vikram Kamat, Chairman, VITS- Kamats Group.
