The automotive industry is investing $300 Billion to convert to electric vehicles. They aren’t here yet in quantity, but they will be soon, and they present a major opportunity for facilities to offer energy as well as parking.

This webinar will describe the various levels of charging points (Electric Vehicle Service Equipments (EVSEs), their installation requirements, and the various incentives that are available to subsidize installation. It will get into the available modes of “charging (money) for charging” and services to the grid that can make this investment pay off.

Facility Management / Operations Analytics

Developing the Strategy for Change and Improvements


Every FM organization can improve in many ways. Facility Engineers want their operations to perform better: economically, sustainably, and to maximize benefit for their stakeholders.

Improvement opportunities are unlimited, but what to do now and next can be uncertain. That is, what initiatives should you take to benefit the business overall? To improve, a facility operations organization needs an actionable image of where it currently stands (the starting point) and where progress should lead. A large enterprise with strategic management processes and quality systems can discover and take actions to enable and guide improvements: to grow capabilities, gain in maturity, and measurably improve performance.
