The switch to zero-emission mobility requires more courage in electric and hydrogen infrastructure in the European Union. Four major European organizations working in the road transport sector – namely, IRU, ACEA, Transport&Environment and Hydrogen Europe – have issued a shared document to raise their voice claiming for more effective actions.

The four players have signed a joint letter to EU leaders. In this letter to transport ministers from the 27 Member States of the EU and key European Parliament Rapporteurs today, the organisations call for ambitious and timely targets for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure.

Electric and hydrogen infrastructure: a crucial element

«The Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation proposal is one of the most crucial elements of the Fit-for-55 package, which will allow Europeans to confidently choose from a range of zero and low carbon powertrains», declared Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, Hydrogen Europe CEO. «Hydrogen refuelling stations, underpinned by ambitious targets under AFIR, must be a part of this equation to ensure the decarbonisation of all segments of road transport. The increasing emissions of the mobility sector will not be addressed if the EU institutions decrease the ambition of this proposal, particularly by cutting distances between stations and removing minimum daily capacities of stations. Only an ambitious text can guarantee that Europeans can easily switch to the zero-emission vehicle of their choice!».
