The fully revamped European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO3.0) was launched by the European Commission in March 2022. The upgraded Observatory is:

  • more user-friendly;
  • data is of a higher quality;
  • a platform has also been added for public authorities to exchange views.

Over the course of 2022, EAFO will gradually be expanded to cover rail and aviation, in addition to the road and waterborne sectors already covered. A consumer information section will also be added. 

The website structure has been entirely overhauled and simplified, for easier and more user-friendly navigation, including on mobile devices. A fully interactive and modular interface also allows users to adapt graphs to their needs and to download the data in different formats for reprocessing. Taking into account users’ feedback, the number of Member State comparison graphs has increased significantly, and new comparison maps have been added for many categories.
