Programme 2019

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

After ambitious 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 increased numbers of low and zero emission heavy-duty vehicles (HDV) across Europe in the coming years.

Are we anywhere close to where we need to be? Will the legislation be ready on time? Electricity, hydrogen or gas: which technology will win the green mobility race?
