Alternative Fuels Infrastructure: First Report Presented at TRAN Committee


On 16 September 2013, MEP Carlo Fidanza presented a draft report on the proposal for a Directive on alternative fuels infrastructure to the parliamentary committee on transport (TRAN). Adopted by the Commission in early 2013, the Directive on clean power for transport opens the door to the deployment of a single market for more sustainable fuels in the transport sector, aiming at a standardised and integrated distribution of alternative fuel stations across Europe.
During the public hearing, a series of key amendments were outlined in relation to multimodality, electricity supply, and the inclusion of two and three-wheel vehicles. The report is now to be evaluated by the Platform for the Electrification of Surface Transport, gathering 12 organisations from across industries and transport modes.
