CLECAT Position Paper on the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation

The CLECAT position paper on the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation calls, inter alia, for national fleet-based targets for heavy-duty vehicles chargers and an increase of the required power level of the truck chargers, which is currently too low. CLECAT also insists that the proposal should be accompanied with proper financial incentives to achieve infrastructure targets in the Member States.

Overall, CLECAT welcomes the Commission proposal for a Regulation, as it provides for clearer binding targets for all modes of freight transport to enable a switch to alternative fuels. This is needed to ensure a harmonised deployment of the infrastructure throughout Europe.
