Surely this is inevitable? Why would electricity companies not charge for this especially once the vehicle dependency switches from oil?
Most electricity companies operating in a regulated environment are usually only regulated for domestic supply....
From the OP's link: "Ionity, a joint venture between BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Ford and Volkswagen including Audi and Porsche"
- Ionity is not an electricity company, it's an EV-charger network company
- They seem to have set a single EU-wide price, which apparently is way out of whack in Norway: it may not be so in other EU countries.
- As noted above, Ionity is owned by a consortium of vehicle manufacturers whose vastly predominant market at the moment is ICE vehicles: they may not be significantly incentivised to make EVs more sttractive [cough]
They buy the electricity from somebody.....
