Programme 2019

CHARGING TOWARDS THE FUTURE: Making EU infrastructure fit for the clean vehicle revolution

After tough negotiations on CO2 emission reduction targets for on-road vehicles, the European Union is bracing for the upcoming revision of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive. The updated legislation will need to ensure that EU transport networks are equipped and ready to welcome millions of low and zero emission vehicles across Europe in the coming years.

Are we anywhere close to where we need to be? Will the legislation be ready on time? Batteries, hydrogen or gas: which technology will win the green mobility race? This year, top policy-makers and stakeholders will gather at the European Transport Forum in Brussels for a high-level debate on these and other related questions.
