CESL will be installing EV charging units across 37 Marriott International hotels and will gradually expand to 100 hotels within one year
Convergence Energy Services Ltd (CESL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), has signed an agreement with Marriott International to develop electric vehicle charging units and related infrastructure.
This comes as the state-owned company accelerates efforts to expand the EV infrastructure in the country.
The company said in a statement that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Marriott International to construct and operate EV charging infrastructure in the hotels managed, licensed and franchised by Marriott International and its affiliates in India with the aim to boost electric vehicles (EV) adoption by strengthening charging infrastructure across the country.
Under this partnership, CESL will be entrusted with planning and implementation of the project including all costs and performance of all tasks required for procurement, installation, operation and maintenance of the charging units and related infrastructure.
Over the next two months, CESL will be installing EV charging units across 37 Marriott International hotels and will gradually expand to 100 hotels within one year.
Marriott International, Inc is based in Maryland, USA, and encompasses a portfolio of roughly 7,900 properties under 30 leading brands spanning 138 countries and territories.
Earlier in September, CESL signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) for the installation of charging and battery swapping stations at its seven terminals and depots.
CESL will establish these facilities at Dwarka sector-8, Dwarka sector 2 depots, Mehrauli Terminal, Nehru Place Terminal, Okhla CW-II, Sukhdev Vihar depot and Kalkaji depot in four months. The facilities being developed at DTC premises will be open for public use.
