Easily one of the most talked about sectors within transportation: electric vehicle charging provides immense opportunities for new build and utilization of existing infrastructure to deliver updated access for EV demand across the country.  However, with lack of proven returns, uptake rate, and high initial costs for access for the end user, there are still some trials and tribulations for a fully realized electric transportation future.

  • What risks are lenders and developers taking on? How reliable have revenue models been (and will be)?
  • At what scale do chargers generate returns? What factors should investors be looking into? Is it just about the electrons or are there cross sales available for the charging stations?
  • What levels of financing are developers seeking? What qualities are they looking for in lenders? Corporate vs project structures.
