Making the EU fuel infrastructure law fit for trucks

April 14, 2021

To achieve climate neutrality, the European Green Deal states that the transport sector needs to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050 compared to 1990. Road freight transport, especially with heavy-duty vehicles, undoubtedly plays a crucial role given its share of 26% of road transport CO2 emissions.

In this letter, T&E and the automotive industry association, ACEA, ask the European Commission to support the roll-out of re-charging infrastructure necessary for zero-emission trucks. Specifically, they request a target for the deployment of 11,000 charging points for electric trucks across the EU by 2025, rising to 42,000 by 2030. They ask the EU commissioners for climate, transport, industry and energy to address this in the upcoming review of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive (AFID).
