Masterclass on Project Finance & Financial Modelling: EV Charging Infrastructure


Why Attend This Masterclass?

The charging infrastructure necessary to stimulate widespread adoption of increasingly available EVs in the marketplace remains to be built. As the mainstream OEMs begin to roll out EVs, the role of charging infrastructure evolves from being an awareness tool to becoming a commercially viable business venture. The billion dollar question today is: How can companies package a commercially viable proposition and differentiate themselves in a non-existent, yet crowded marketplace?

Government and industry players both see scale and interoperability as a key to a successful roll out. Some analysts believe failure to coordinate this system could set adoption back 10 years. However, to implement an appropriate EV charging infrastructure does not necessarily mean mandating an outlet at every street corner. It means creating a profitable industry where the economics are profitable and self-sustaining to justify the investment as the market develops.

With electric vehicle (EV) adoption expanding across the nation, the need for charging stations is rising exponentially, as projections are pointing towards continued industry evolution and growth. This Project Finance & Financial Modelling: EV Charging Infrastructure Master Class will explore those projections while providing attendees with a comprehensive overview of the business and revenue models being deployed in the EV charging infrastructure space. A lack of deep understanding of these economics and business models can prevent many stakeholders from fully utilizing this opportunity to optimize their profits. This course is your opportunity to learn where you and your firm fit into the EV charging infrastructure landscape through exploring current trends and pressure points in EV infrastructure deployment.
