USA: LNG Electric and MD7 want to electrify the hotel industry
LNG Electric wants to equip more than 13,000 hotels in the US with both AC and DC charging infrastructure. To that end, the company has now partnered with the design firm MD7.
The goal is to equip 10 to 15 per cent of the American hotel industry with charging infrastructure to “tackle range anxiety by making chargers more widely available”. LNG Electric wants to become one of the three largest owners and operators of charging stations for electric vehicles in the US.
LNG Electric and MD7 plan to install AC and DC charging stations for electric vehicles at more than 13,000 hotels and more than 40 multi-family homes over the next six years. The charging technology will come from LNG Electric, while MD7 will handle the installation.
“MD7 is the best at installing connected infrastructure like EV charging stations”, says Taylor Weaver, CEO of LNG Electric. “Their willingness to help us level the playing field and provide charging stations for people of all income levels shows how committed they are to our mission. We want to power e-cars no matter where they are.”
The first installations are scheduled to start this month, initially of Level 2 charging stations. The first charging stations will be installed at Marriott and Hilton brand hotels in the US states of Ohio, Florida and Illinois.
