Partnering with Great British Pubs & Inns

We are pleased to announce that VoltShare are now Trusted Partners of the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII) helping local and group pubs & inns in the U.K. develop reliable and resilient electric car charging facilities for guests and staff.

Our existing partners in hospitality and leisure have seen tremendous boost in guest registration rate, and significant revenue generation from each chargepoint. Ultimately this translates to a more resilient business with passive marketing and recurring revenue. How does this work?

Well, simply put, having car chargepoints at destination locations such as pubs and inns, drives traffic to their venue and also extends dwell time. Since most electric car drivers are always looking for a charge, providing that essential service gives business owners an upper hand. We have received feedback from our partners that their guests could not have been happier with the offering.

“We are so pleased to have you install EV chargers to our hotel. The sign up process was so simple and professional. They were installed very efficiently with no disruption to our business. They have helped us to gain trade though bookings for our hotel for people that require an overnight charge. We also have general car users on route that need to charge, so they pop in and have something to eat!” - Nik O'Flanagan, The Woolpack Inn (Fishbourne) - a BII member and a VoltShare partner.

Rise of Local and Independents

Simplifying car charging for hospitality venues is our business. Our main goal is to create a community-powered network of chargepoints and having local advocates and champions are exactly the kind of people we want to align ourselves with.

Being part of the BII network means we get to interact, personally, with independent establishments who are serious about sustainability, zero emission transport, and providing a unique and personal experience to guests. We absolutely love to learn more about each pub, what makes them unique, and how we can help them become a local bastion of the electric revolution.

Here at VoltShare, we never think of ourselves as suppliers or providers. We are first and foremost, partners in your electric adoption, in every sense of the word. Not only do we help you in every step of the way, but we also provide ongoing support and advertorials. Our goal: to ensure you have the tools and knowledge to thrive!

A single chargepoint or a hundred does not make a difference to us. The simple act of improving the nation's infrastructure with a single chargepoint, accessible to hundreds and thousands or millions is a great stride in itself.

Your Pub's Role

Being a destination spot, whether it be for a meal with friends or an overnight stay, pubs and inns play a crucial role; they serve the local and travelling populace by being a beacon of British hospitality.

We believe pubs and inns have a greater role to play in the electric revolution. Just like providing WiFi, providing electric car charging is a necessity. Not only does it eases range-anxiety of drivers but as destination charging being preferred amongst majority of drivers, you would be developing the nation's charging infrastructure first-hand.

ESG Benefits

On top of financial benefits, with every hour of charging, you would be enabling the savings of 5kg of CO2 tailpipe emissions. In an average month, you could be looking at over 200kg of CO2 emissions saved!

Additionally, for every chargepoint we install, we ensure 2000 - 3000kg of CO2 emissions are captured through reforestation efforts.

Our Role

VoltShare believes that direct ownership and direct provision of car chargepoint facilities, by pubs and inns, are decidedly something all owners cannot miss out on. But with suppliers providing expensive hardware with significant mark-ups, confusing management software, prohibitively long contracts, business owners are left in the lurch as they are unable to keep up with changing times.

We're playing an important role in democratising the nation's development of car charging infrastructure, by providing the tools and knowledge for hospitality business owners to take corporate action for enabling a zero emission society, with none of the barriers.

Designed for Pubs

We have specifically devised an industry-leading car charging solution that is fit for pubs and inns with low upfront capital costs, no subscription fees, and simple to use mobile app to manage their chargepoints. Within minutes, owners can start offering their guests car charging facilities with unbelievable ease. Our partners in hospitality and leisure agrees with us.

From one chargepoint to hundreds across multiple pub sites, our market-leading solution is suitable for all pubs of any size and cost-effective to scale.
