Many more alternative fuelling stations needed
Truck makers and environmentalists have joined forces to push for the deployment of 11,000 charging points for electric trucks across the EU by 2025, rising to 42,000 by 2030.
The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) and Transport & Environment (T&E) made this call to the European Commission in a joint letter on 13 April.
In addition, some 300 hydrogen re-fuelling stations suitable for heavy-duty vehicles should be rolled out no later than 2025, increasing to around 1,000 no later than 2030.
These targets are ambitious – but necessary to achieve the goals of the European Green Deal, the associations said. (ben)
