RAW Charging partners with luxury hotel chain

RAW Charging has done a deal with country house hotel and spa chain Exclusive Collection to install and operate 30 electric vehicle charging for its venues.

The deal will see RAW, which has already installed chargers at five Exclusive Collection venues across the UK, including new chargers at Pennyhill Park hotel and spa, South Lodge and its spa in West Sussex, The Manor House hotel and golf club in Wiltshire and Lainston House hotel and Season Cookery School in Hampshire.

With an estimated 45% of drivers needing to charge EVs away from home, EV charging is a valuable addition to Exclusive Collections destinations across the UK, it said.

RAW has recently launched charging facilities at a large number of hospitality and retail sites across the UK as landlords seek to provide their customers with EV charging facilities.

The roll-out of EV chargers includes the largest new EV charging hub in London at Brent Cross, it claims, the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York, and plans for a new ChargeYard in Oxford as part of a sponsorship with Oxford City Football Club. RAW has also launched the Charge Yard facility in Slough.

Bruce Galliford, CEO, RAW Charging, said: “It has been brilliant to work with Exclusive Collection to deliver EV charging to five of their sites in the UK. EV charging is a valuable addition to their range of exclusive hotels, including Pennyhill Park hotel. There are more EVs on the road than ever before and hotels have a huge opportunity to roll-out EV chargers at their sites, giving their customers new and necessary services as the number of EV drivers increases. This partnership is the next step in RAW’s delivery of EV charging across the UK and Europe.”

Danny Pecorelli, Managing Director, Exclusive Collection, said: “Being a certified B Corp business, the successful installation of Raw EV charging points at our properties has been another step forward on our journey making adaptations and improvements across the collection.  With the increase in EVs on the road, the chargers offer guests the opportunity of worry-free charging of their cars to get on the go with ease when they leave. Giving them time to rest, recharge and take a breath from the everyday in beautiful surroundings whilst with us.”
