Hotels and gastronomy

More service and revenue through intelligent charging stations

wallbe® charging stations offer an attractive as well as economic benefit for hotels and gastronomy companies which are offering customer parking spaces. Alongside the additional service for visitors the charging station service also generates additional revenue. Margins can be forecasted as the pricing and billing models can be set individually by the operators. The integration into already established billing systems such as PlugSurfing (OCPP) enableles another, attractive source of revenue.

Sleep & Charge

Hotel guests with electric vehicles have an easy time. They receive a hotel room assigned RFID-Card during the check-in. This card can be used to charge their electric vehicle at any time during their stay. Guests return the RFID-Card during their check-out and will be charged the consumed kWh directly on their hotel bill. The hotel can set individual kWh prices via the wallbe® Cloud, monitor the charging processes and kWh volumes per guest in real time and transfer this information into their accounting and billing system. Therefor it is even possible to precisely track the kWh consumption of a guest who lost his RFID-Card.

Install it where ever you need it

The operating of chargepoints is trouble free and economical. Every customer parking space is the right location. wallbe® offers a versatile portfolio for outdoor use or installation in underground car parks or car parks. The charge point control takes place via the wallbe® Cloud, in which all user and consumption data are monitored in real time. This ensures a reliable cost control. Authorisation methods such as RFID-Cards or the wallbe App help to reliably track and invoice consumed kWh.

23,40

Energy costs for a completely charged EV battery (e.g. Tesla with 90 kWh) at a purchase price of 26 Cent / kWh

8.541,00

Yearly energy costs of one completely charged EV battery per day and guest

Real time cost control

The main costs of offering charging stations to guests occur through the energy supplier. This simple calculation shows how important a real time cost control really is: Charging an EV with 90kWh at a purchase price of 26 Cent / kWh results in 23,40€ per charging process. A single charge a day and guest generates energy costs of around 8.541,00 EUR each year! The wallbe® Cloud gives operators insight into the growing costs at any time. This offers the basis for an optimal planning transparency for the economical operation of charging station.

1

The hotel provides charging stations as a service during the guests stay. The hotel can flexibly set their prices as well as independently create access cards for their charging stations.

2

Customers can authorise the charging process with the hotel room card. The consumed kWh will be assigned to the room card.

3

The charging station transmits all billing-relevant data into the wallbe Cloud.

4

The hotel, acting as the operator of the charging stations, receives a transparent overview of all charging processes at any time in real time.

5

The hotel invoices the consumed kWh during the guests check-out.

Simply for everyone

Electric vehicle driving guests highly appreciate and more often choose hotels or gastronomy with charging station services. Operators and owners may use this additional value to enhance their location and parking spaces. Moreover self-operated charging stations offer a variety of attractive price-models. Whether per kWh, charge duration or revenue in the restaurant: all parameters can individually be set per charging station.

Anytime

Even during a lunch break or a coffe to go, charging stations are the better parking spot. Charge times of around 15 minutes already increase the range noticeably. Hotel and gastronomy companies with wallbe chargepoints are therefore becoming more and more attractive.

Comfortable payment

EV drivers use the free of charge PlugSurfing App to authorise themselves at the charging station. A registration including the desired payment method is all that is needed. The App informs about price and the current charge-status during each charging process. The user will be invoiced according to the consumed kWh after the charging process. This comfortable method allows customers to use the infrastructure as easy as possible. Operators have a real time insight into numerous information such as consumption per charging station. This paves the way for a transparent cost control and efficient use of the charging stations.
