What is the status of the upcoming EU regulation that will affect electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and the companies doing business in this sector? What does this mean for the markets? The regulation will e.g. affect electric vehicles throughout the EU, the entire life cycle of batteries, including the extraction of materials and the disposal of batteries.
