The Workshops

EV Charging Points workshop with Emily Stone, Energy Saving Trust 

Electric charging points are a current talking point among property managers, not just in Scotland but around the UK. The news is full of stories and there has been a huge increase in ownership of electric and hybrid vehicles. With this increase, comes a demand for charging points and getting these installed into car parks of jointly owned properties is a challenge, but will soon become essential. In the session, Emily will give advice and information on how factors and property managers can prepare themselves for this new challenge.
