Revision of EU legislation under «Fit for 55« package
Fit for 55 package is a set of proposals to revise and update EU legislation and to put in place new initiatives with the aim of ensuring that EU policies are in line with the climate goals - reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. Achieving these emission reductions in the next decade is crucial to Europe becoming the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050. Part of the package presented on the 14th July 2021 is also proposal for the Regulation on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure which will repeal Directive 2014/94 on alternative fuels infrastructure deployment. This initiative seeks to ensure the availability and usability of a dense, widespread network of alternative fuels infrastructure throughout the EU
. All users of alternative fuel vehicles need to be able to move through the EU at ease, enabled by key infrastructure such as motorways, ports and airports. The specific objectives are
- ensuring minimum infrastructure to support the required uptake of alternative fuel vehicles across all transport modes and in all Member States to meet the EU’s climate objectives;
- ensuring the infrastructure’s full interoperability and
- ensuring full user information and adequate payment options.
