EU Grants €292m in Funding for Alternative Fuel Infrastructure

The European Commission has selected 24 projects to receive EU funding that will support the installation of alternative fuel infrastructure.

These projects will receive a share of approximately 292 million EUR from the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Facility (AFIF) to deploy relevant infrastructure along the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) in 23 EU Member States.

Commissioner for Transport, Adina Vălean, said:

“Our investment of €292m will translate into approximately 5,700 charging points in around 1,400 charging stations, plus some 57 hydrogen refuelling stations along the TEN-T network – all within the next 3 years. In line with the European Green Deal goals and the need to increase the EU’s energy independence, the projects will help Europe’s transport network move away from reliance on fossil fuels.”

The selected companies aim to accelerate the creation of recharging and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure needed to scale electric and hydrogen power in all modes of transport.

The projects range from the installation of electric recharging stations along the TEN-T road network to the deployment of hydrogen refuelling stations for cars, trucks and buses, as well as the electrification of ground handling services in airports.
