Deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure: Fit for 55 package

19-11-2021

On 14 July 2021, the European Commission presented a package of proposals to equip the EU's climate, energy, land use, transport and taxation policies to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 % by 2030, compared with 1990 levels – the 'fit for 55' package. The package includes a proposal to revise the 2014 directive on alternative fuels infrastructure and turn it into a regulation. In the draft regulation the Commission proposes binding targets for electric vehicle charging points and hydrogen refuelling points, electric charging for stationary aircraft at airports and on shore power supply for ships at ports. It also contains provisions for EU Member States to ensure coverage of refuelling points for liquefied natural gas (LNG) dedicated to heavy-duty vehicles and LNG refuelling points in maritime ports. In the European Parliament, the file has been referred to the Transport and Tourism Committee. First edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.
