Member States are obliged to adopt National Policy Framework targets and report the to the European Commission. NPF targets are then set for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure in the respective Member State.
NPF and NIR targets
In accordance with Article 3 of Directive 2014/94/EU (Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive), Member States were obliged to adopt National Policy Frameworks (NPFs) and report them to the European Commission by 18 November 2016. NPFs should include national targets for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure in the respective Member State.
The Directive furthermore sets (qualitative) requirements for the roll-out of infrastructure for recharging electric vehicles in urban and suburban areas and refueling natural gas vehicles in urban and suburban areas and on the TEN-T core network. It also contains provisions for LNG infrastructure on the core network and in (inland and maritime) ports. It is largely in the discretion of Member States to set requirements for hydrogen infrastructure through the NPFs. The recitals of the Directive recommend some specific metrics for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure, while others have been suggested by the Commission in its assessment of the NPFs.
Under the reporting obligations of the Directive, the Commission is tasked with assessing the overall relevance and effectiveness of NPFs and their coherence at Union level. The assessment of the deployment of infrastructure along the TEN-T network is of particular relevance.
For that reason, EAFO is now publishing the integral text of the National Policy Frameworks including an English translation where necessary, and will track progress towards meeting the targets established therein. We also provide an overview of the most important features of the National Policy Frameworks.
Please note that the National Policy Frameworks have been formally assessed by the European Commission. The result of this work is available here.
