New Hotel EV Chargers Launched At 13 Locations

Windward Management, a team of hotel operators and investors, has launched 90 new electric vehicle-charging points in 13 of its hotel locations nationwide.


The charging infrastructure was installed by ePower, which supplies, instals, supports and manages electric vehicle chargers throughout Ireland.

As the number of EV drivers continues to rise, Windward believes that charging facilities are becoming an imperative hotel offering. The newly installed EV chargers will improve ESG factors, promote sustainability, reduce the hotels’ carbon footprint, and increase their green credentials.

The electric vehicle-charging points display a how-to guide for users. The charging stations are visible on several EV-charging apps, such as Plugsurfing, the ePower app, and the internationally used PlugShare app.

The executive director of ePower, Hugh Hall, said, “The ePower team was pleased to instal EV chargers for the Windward-managed hotels, as they work to improve their approach to sustainability. As well as installing the equipment, we’re looking forward to growing our partnership as we manage and maintain the chargers at these Windward properties in the future.”


The teams at Windward Management and the TMR Hotel Collection plan to continue with the expansion of the EV chargers as part of their decarbonisation plan in the future.

The group general manager at Windward Management, Charlie Sheil, said, “We are delighted to offer ePower car-charging facilities across our portfolio of hotels. Feedback from customers has been fantastic so far, and we are looking forward to expanding the facilities, in line with our sustainability initiatives.”

A spokesperson for the TMR Hotel Collection, Ian McSweeney, said, “We are very pleased with the professional installation of EV chargers by ePower across our properties. This is a fantastic service that we are happy to offer and is in keeping with our dedication to addressing the needs of our valued customers.”

The ePower EV-charging stations are now available at the Connemara Coast Hotel, McWilliam Park Hotel, Radisson Blu Dublin Airport, Plaza Hotel Tallaght, Tallaght Cross Hotel, Mount Wolseley Hotel, Park Inn Shannon Airport, Aghadoe Heights, Cavan Crystal Hotel, Farnham Estate and Harvey’s Point, and they are soon to be live at the Fitzwilton Hotel and the Anner Hotel.
