The European Union has reached a new level agreement temporary. With it, they plan to spread hydrogen filling and charging stations across most of the continent. Points for electric vehicles must be distributed every 60 km, covering the main TEN-T (Trans-European Transport Network) routes. Similarly, they will have to offer a minimum capacity of 400kW, with a project deadline of 2026. At the same time, the plan also provides for capacities up to 600 kW, but it is reserved for 2028.

On the other hand, as established by MEPs and the Presidency of the European Council, trucks and buses will have charging stations every 120 km, consisting of two parking lots for trucks located in safe and guarded areas. Their power range is set between 1400 and 2800 kW and they are to be distributed to half of the main European routes with a deadline of 2028.

European Union also wants to simplify payment methods. Owners of electric and alternative fuel vehicles should have easy and convenient access to these charging points. This means compatibility with credit and debit cards as well as technology. contactless and QR codes.

these seasons they will have an obligation to clearly show the price of fuel. That is, set the cost per kWh, per minute or per kg. The European Union states that they must be “reasonable, easily and clearly comparable, transparent and non-discriminatory” for electric vehicle owners.

With regard to fuel cell vehicle hydroliners, the European Union has established that by 2031 there should be a station every 200 km in TEN-E. Thus, vehicles with alternative fuel combustion methods will have a covered future on most of the main roads of the continent.

This plan comes as an attempt to decarbonize the transport sectorfacilitating the use of electric vehicles. After all, as MEP Ismail Ertug has already noted, this “is still responsible for a huge part of emissions.” With this new infrastructure capable of supporting cleaner charging technologies, we could see “a transition to a climate-neutral Europe,” says Ertuğ.

The new rules will help roll out infrastructure for alternative fuels without further delay and ensure that driving and recharging a next-generation car is as easy and convenient as a gasoline-powered car.

Certainly, proposal still needs to be approved the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the Council and the Transport and Tourism Commission of the Parliament. Subsequently, it will have to pass through Parliament and Council together. Only then will we be able to see the reaction of the European Union to this temporary agreement.

In the same year, Europe approved a ban on the sale of gasoline and diesel cars by 2035. cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 as a goal Of course, before entry into force, EU member states must reaffirm their commitment to the agreement.
