European Commission launches Evaluation Survey on Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive

Regional and local authorities are invited to provide their input until 26th of March 2020.

The European Commission (DG MOVE) has requested a study to evaluate the Directive of Deployment of Alternatives Fuels Infrastructure (AFID) and its implementation since 2014. The objective of the study is to answer a set of evaluation questions to enable DG MOVE to assess effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value of the Directive, with a view to draw lessons for the future. An important part of the evaluation methodology is based on obtaining input from stakeholders including carrying out interviews and surveys.

Ricardo Energy & Environment and Ricardo Nederland B.V is leading the consortium in charge of this evaluation, and they are currently seeking regional and local authorities that would like to contribute. Public Authorities’ input is expected to be relevant in terms of their involvement in the implementation of AFID related measures, the potential input to the development of National Policy Frameworks (NPFs)  prepared by Members States, and commenting on the effectiveness of the AFID with the adoption of measures and deployment of AFI, the relevance of their needs and challenges towards the deployment of AFIs and uptake of AFVs, and the added value of the AFID.

We would therefore like to invite you to respond to the survey, which can be accessed here. The survey will be available in an additional 11 languages shortly.

The survey is expected to remain open for responses until Thursday 26th March 2020.
