According to the report, China’s market for EV charging stations was until recently monopolized by the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) and the China Southern Power Grid (CSPG). SGCC was not only the manager of stations but also supplied electricity to these charging stations. The one key advantage of this model was that it was simple and easy to manage. However, its monopoly may have hindered the development of the EV market because of lack of competition. In 2014, SGGC initiated an ambitious reform to open up the market for constructing charging stations to private players. This initiative welcomes everyone who has the willingness and ability to invest.
