"As more utilities wake up to the consumer and corporate hunger for low-carbon energy and transportation alternatives, more are moving proactively to ensure that they’re not left behind. One of the biggest signposts yet came Tuesday in the form of a "significant investment" by Energy Impact Partners (EIP) in nine-year-old electric vehicle charging company Greenlots.
Although the amount of the infusion wasn’t disclosed, EIP CEO and managing partner Hans Kobler described it as a "meaningful commitment from the fund," which was established to invest in companies that are creating technologies or services that optimize energy consumption or that contribute to sustainable generation.The companies behind EIP include these global utility and power companies: Southern Company; National Grid; Xcel Energy; Ameren; Great Plains Energy; Fortis; AGL; Avista; Madison Gas and Electric; TEPCO; PTT Public Co.; OGE; and Transcanada.
All of these organizations have a vested interest in the rollout of EV charging infrastructure and could benefit from new services as this mode of transportation becomes more prevalent."https://www.greenbiz.com/article/utility-coalition-invests-ev-charging-firm-greenlots
