This acquisition from Shell follows on the heels of recent moves by other O&G and utility players, such as the acquisition of eMotorWerks by Enel, G2mobility by Total, and Chargemaster by BP, as well as numerous other smaller investments in the space. Clients should regard EV charging as a particular hotspot area for investment activity, one from which the major developers are rapidly vanishing.
