S&P Global Ratings discusses electric vehicles charging infrastructure as an emerging asset class, covered by specialist press

Pierre Georges and Vittoria Ferraris, analysts at S&P Global Ratings, examined electric vehicles charging infrastructure as an emerging asset class, after 67% growth in worldwide sales of electric vehicles in 2018.

They concluded that the asset class is “unregulated, untested and unproven”, and is likely to attract more venture capital business than long-term project financing. And while European utilities may be naturally positioned to drive investment, they could face strong competition from oil majors and automakers.
