Sustainable Transport Forum publishes new report on alternative fuels
At the occasion of its plenary meeting, held on 26 November, the Sustainable Transport Forum (STF) published a report "Analysis of stakeholder views on key policy needs and options for action in Alternative Fuels Infrastructure deployment and consumer services". This report is the outcome of a stakeholder consultation undertaken in 2019 about alternative fuels infrastructure deployment and will be used in the evaluation of the Directive 2014/94/EU on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure.
The report addresses two main topics:
- Minimum requirements for alternative fuels infrastructure
- Consumer services and seamless payments
While the part on the "minimum requirements for alternative fuels infrastructure" focuses on the deployment of the infrastructure and the minimum quality requirements, the part on "consumer services and seamless payments" deals with the accessibility and availability of data, payment methods, cybersecurity, and smart charging & vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies.

This group has been set by the European Commission and brings together Member States and 32 alternative fuels experts. The STF helps the Commission to advance the application of the Clean Power for Transport strategy and facilitate the implementation of Directive 2014/94/EU.
