Participate on the Evaluation Survey of the Directive on the Deployment of Alternative Fuels Infrastructure, which it can be accessed here. The survey will be available in an additional 11 languages shortly. The survey is expected to remain open for responses until Thursday 26th March 2020.
The European Commission is conducting an evaluation of the Directive on the Deployment of Alternative Fuels Infrastructure 2014/94/EU (henceforth the Directive or AFID). The Directive was adopted in 2014 and creates a common framework of measures for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure (AFI) in the EU.
The Directive requires Member States to set up long-term National Policy Frameworks (NPFs) for the development of the market as concerns alternative fuels and the planning of the deployment of relevant alternative fuels infrastructure. It also stipulates requirements for the rollout of alternative fuels infrastructure along the core network of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) and its urban nodes – with different milestones for 2020, 2025 and 2030 for different alternative fuels. The Directive sets common technical specifications for recharging and refuelling stations that aim at ensuring interoperability and adequate consumer information. It covers electricity (including shore-side electricity for ships), hydrogen, and natural gas (CNG for light duty road and LNG for heavy duty road, maritime and inland waterway transport).
The objective of the study is to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the Directive and to collect and analyse evidence to help assess whether it has achieved its objectives in an effective and efficient manner. In addition, the study aims to determine whether its objectives and priorities remain relevant with emerging needs and consistent with other EU policies and priorities. It aims to provide an overall assessment of how successful the Directive has been in achieving its objectives and it will examine the progress made across the relevant policy areas.In the context of the study we are organising surveys with national and local authorities, with direct experience in the development of National Policy Frameworks and the implementation of measures related to the Directive
The objectives of the interviews are to obtain your input and data (where relevant) on the evaluation of the Directive on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure. The roadmap of the evaluation process can be found here
