EASE Response to the Public Consultation on the Revision of the Directive on the Deployment of Alternative Fuels Infrastructure (AFID)

EASE submitted a response to the European Commission's public consultation on the Revision of the Directive 2014/94/EU on the Deployment of Alternative Fuels Infrastructure (AFID). 

Following the policy ambition set out by the European Green Deal for the EU to become a climate neutral economy by 2050, transport emissions have to decrease by 90% by that year.

Recharging and refuelling infrastructure need to be ready to meet the demand for sustainable alternative fuels in all modes of transport.

Directive 2014/94/EU on deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure (AFID) was adopted in 2014 to ensure a common framework of measures for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure in Member States. The central means are national policy frameworks that Member States had to adopt in 2016. Moreover, the Directive sets technical specifications for the interoperability of infrastructure. However, alternative fuels infrastructure is not available evenly across the EU. Member States’ national policy frameworks under Directive 2014/94/EU show, on average, a lack of ambition to ensure adequate rollout and easy cross-border usability in the critical period post 2020.

The European Commission is inviting the public and stakeholders to express their opinion and share information on the impact of the existing Directive as well as on possible measures and potential impacts of its revision. EASE believes this a great opportunity to present the EASE position on how the transport sector can be decarbonised thanks to a.o. energy storage solutions.
