What is EAFO?
The European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO) is the European Commission's knowledge centre, contain a wealth of data on alternative fuels in Europe. It gathers information on infrastructure roll-out for alternative fuels, the uptake of alternative fuels, and support measures in Member States and other European countries within EAFO’s scope.
The data gathered by EAFO is essential for the European Commission to monitor the implementation of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive (2019/94/EU), the proposed regulation on alternative fuels infrastructure, as well as the Clean Vehicles Directive. These pieces of legislation are central to the Commission’s efforts to decarbonise transport, as acknowledged in the European Green Deal and the Smart and Sustainable Mobility Strategy.
