Reducing the use of fossil fuels in transport is key if the EU is to reach climate neutrality by 2050. In order to achieve this goal, there needs to be enough recharging points and alternative fuel refuelling points in the EU for the cars, planes and ships that use them.
The alternative fuels infrastructure regulation – part of the Fit for 55 package – sets concrete targets for deploying such infrastructure in the EU in the upcoming years.
In June 2022, EU member states, meeting within the Council, agreed a common position on the Commission’s proposal for this regulation. The Council and the Parliament reached a provisional deal on the proposal in March 2023.
