Clean power for transport

The Clean Power for Transport package aims to facilitate the development of a single market for alternative fuels for transport in Europe and includes two directives:

The “Clean fuel for transport directive” sets out an alternative fuels strategy and the road to its implementation covering all modes of transport. It aims at establishing a long-term policy framework to guide technological development and investments in the deployment of these fuels and give confidence to consumers. The directive treats a number of fuels (electricity, CNG, LNG and hydrogen).

With the “alternative fuels infrastructure directive”, EU member States will have to provide a minimum infrastructure for alternative fuels such as electricity, hydrogen and natural gas, as well as common EU-wide standards for equipment needed and user information.

The alternative fuels are often also beneficial in helping urban areas to meet Union air quality obligations.
