Although this article relates to the US, the issues are the same for Europe and European utilities.  Financially the transition to a low carbon and digital energy and transport system is a costly one, but with huge financial benefits for the  winners, and oblivion for the losers. What is seldom mentioned though is the social cost on delaying the transition, and the social benefit of it's acceleration. Quality of life, and a huge reduction in deaths, are just two very obvious benefits (returns) from the reduction in air pollution alone from the EVrevolution.  

We can't ignore the financial cost, but we have to be better at recognizing the social and economic benefit and value of the EV and clean energy transition.
