Charging solutions for hotels & guesthouses
For easy and chargeable EV charging
EV Charging - easy, convenient & chargeable
Until a few years ago, guests with electric vehicles (EVs) were still a rarity. Back then, guests would rely on their emergency charging cable and a standard 3 pin plug socket. Today, however, this is no longer sufficient. Why?
Charging from a three-pin plug is not only slow, but also potentially dangerous.
More and more guests have EVs and expect to be able to charge at their accomodation.
Electricity prices have risen so hospitality businesses need to be able to easily invoice for charging electricity consumed by guests.
A charging solution that meets all these requirements is becoming essential for many hotels and guesthouses. Without it, you lose guests who are specifically looking for accommodations with dedicated EV charging facilities - or you give away the electricity used to charge. So what can be done? A secure, reliable and user friendly solution that offers simple billing options is needed.
With KEBA’s charging solution, you can embrace the emobility revolution and sieze the opportunity to make your establishment EV ready. Accept the challenge and ensure your company meets the requirements of the present and the future. KEBA provides support, guidance and the right charging solutions to help you on your eMobility journey.
"Our guests like the fact that we rely on wallboxes that have not been transported halfway around the globe, but also come from Austria."
3 questions you should ask yourself
Should I provide my guests with a charging option?
Absolutely, as charging stations are highly sought after by guests with an EV. No wonder, since it makes the stay more relaxing knowing that they can leave with a full battery. Charging stations have become an important selection criterion for EV selecting a hotel. So much so, that most popular booking platforms have introduced filtering functions for charger availability. If a hotel does not appear here, it has already missed out on potential customers. However, if you can offer your guests a charging option, you can differentiate yourself from the competition. Therefore, it’s worth opting for a charging solution from KEBA.
Every wallbox is different: one has a fixed Type 2 charging cable, the other a socket. One model is designed for simple charging, another for communication with PV systems or other charging stations. So many options makes it difficult to choose what’s right for you. That's exactly why we developed the Wallbox Finder.
Can I easily and transparently bill for the energy used to charge?
Certainly, by using the KEBA eMobility Solution for hotels and companies. This intuitive desktop application enables you to manage charging cards for guests and track their charging sessions or prepare them for billing. The KEBA eMobility Solution for hotels and companies creates a report for each guest detailing their charging sessions, energy consumption and the associated costs based on the defined kWh price. The charging costs incurred can then be added as an item directly on the hotel invoice.

Do I need a load management solution?
Yes, if you want to operate more than one charging station. When a single EV charges at an AC wallbox, it typically draws 11 kW. When multiple vehicles are charging simultaneously, the energy demand can quickly overwhelm the existing electrical system. However, since your hotel has other more important consumers - e.g. kitchen, laundry or wellness area,the charging currents must be adapted to the energy demand at that time. Load management systems monitor the building’s consumption in real time and regulate the charging stations accordingly. In situations where multiple wallboxes are required, our local charging management system (M20) with the P30 x-series offers an excellent solution.
M20 charging management controller
As the transition to sustainable mobility calls for increasingly large systems with more charging points, we at KEBA have developed a solution that enables simple scaling: the KeContact M20 charging management controller. It allows dynamic and smart load management of up to 200 wallboxes.
