As our country continues to transition to electric vehicles, many of us have become increasingly aware of the environmental and economic benefits of electric vehicles. Ministry of Heavy industries formulated the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles in India (FAME INDIA) scheme in 2015 to promote the usage of EVs in India. With the current implementation of FAME-2, the scheme focuses on supporting the adoption of public and private Electric vehicles. 
Marriott International recently partnered with CHARGE ZONE to deploy 100 EV charging stations across all its properties in India which will help in reducing carbon emissions.

Taking a step towards sustainability, Indore Marriott Hotel installed an EV Charging station at the property on the 20th of May 2022 and has initiated conversion towards an EV fleet as a part of the initiative by Marriott’s commitment to sustainable operations and creating an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure around their hotels. Indore Marriott Hotel aims to meet the fast-growing demand of EV users travelling to Indore. By providing this facility, hotels can attract more guests, appeal to desirable high spending customers and establish the brand as a sustainability leader which eventually helps in improving the bottom line. 
CHARGE ZONE installed the Fast DC 60kW/120kW Charging Station with Dual Charging Guns that are designed to charge e-4w. The charging stations will be open to the public.

Earlier, such technologies costed a fortune, however times have changed and with more technological advancements, both cost and maintenance have reduced. Running on clean energy source, these vehicles are eco-friendly and reduce your carbon footprint thus positively affecting the economy. By embracing such technology, we only strive towards making this planet a cleaner and safer place to live.

Rishi Kumar, General Manager, Indore Marriott Hotel said, “The market for electric vehicles has been expanding and the industry is eagerly waiting for new car models offering different driving range & interoperable battery swapping facilities. Indore Marriott Hotel has been dedicated towards delivering the best possible hospitality to its patron and through this initiative, we aim to move closer towards the goal of creating an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure as these charging stations have the potential to revolutionize the country’s transportation system.”
