We have published a joint letter on AFIR, sharing our concerns regarding the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation proposal. Published by the European Commission on 14 July 2021, as part of the Fit-For-55 Package, this proposal is intended to support the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure within the EU.
The signing associations fully welcome the European Commission’s ambition to develop a strong policy framework for the further deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure to achieve the Green Deal objectives. However, the overall lack of ambition for LNG/CNG infrastructure, which can supply natural gas, biomethane and e-methane to end-users is alarming as it would considerably delay the decarbonisation of transport.
The deployment of the road refuelling infrastructure for gas supports the decarbonisation of the transport sector. It enables the supply and wider deployment of gaseous solutions including biomethane and e-methane across the EU.
