General Manager at the Radisson Blu Dublin Airport Elaine Carolan with Executive Director of ePower Hugh Hall, at one of 90 charging points ePower has installed at 13 Windward-managed hotels around Ireland including at Cavan Crystal Hotel and Farnham Estate, both in Cavan Town.

EV charge points at local hotels

Electric vehicle charge points have been recently installed at the Cavan Crystal Hotel and Farnham Estate, Cavan Town.

They are among 90 new EV charge points at 13 hotels nationside under the Windward Management group, a team of experienced hotel operators and investors. The charging infrastructure was installed by ePower who supply, install, support and manage electric vehicle chargers throughout Ireland.

The investment means hotel guests and customers can now easily charge their electric vehicles during their visit. As the number of EV drivers continues to rise, Windward believes charging facilities are becoming an imperative hotel offering.

The charge points are easy to operate with each station displaying a ‘how to use’ guide for users. The charging stations are visible on several EV charging apps such as Plugsurfing, the ePower app and on the internationally used app, PlugShare.

Hotel management report initial take-up of the EV chargers among customers as "very positive" and say they’re being used more regularly every week as awareness grows about their installation.

The teams at Windward Management and The TMR Hotel Collection are very excited about building on sustainable initiatives within their managed properties and plan to continue with the expansion of the EV chargers, as part of their decarbonisation plan in the future.
