This is a legislation item that originated from the EU

After exit day there will be three versions of this legislation to consult for different purposes. The legislation.gov.uk version is the version that applies in the UK. The EU Version currently on EUR-lex is the version that currently applies in the EU i.e you may need this if you operate a business in the EU.

The web archive version is the official version of this legislation item as it stood on exit day before being published to legislation.gov.uk and any subsequent UK changes and effects applied. The web archive also captured associated case law and other language formats from EUR-Lex.

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally adopted).

ANNEX IREPORT

The report shall contain a description of the measures taken in a Member State in support of alternative fuels infrastructure build-up. The report shall include at least the following elements:

1. Legal measures

Information on legal measures, which may consist of legislative, regulatory or administrative measures to support the build-up of alternative fuels infrastructure, such as building permits, parking lot permits, certification of the environmental performance of businesses and fuel stations concessions.

2. Policy measures supporting the implementation of the national policy framework

Information on those measures shall include the following elements:

  • direct incentives for the purchase of means of transport using alternative fuels or for building the infrastructure,

  • availability of tax incentives to promote means of transport using alternative fuels and the relevant infrastructure,

  • use of public procurement in support of alternative fuels, including joint procurement,

  • demand-side non-financial incentives, for example preferential access to restricted areas, parking policy and dedicated lanes,

  • consideration of the need for renewable jet fuel refuelling points in airports within the TEN-T Core Network,

  • technical and administrative procedures and legislation with regard to the authorisation of alternative fuels supply, in order to facilitate the authorisation process.

3. Deployment and manufacturing support

Annual public budget allocated for alternative fuels infrastructure deployment, broken down by alternative fuel and by transport mode (road, rail, water and air).

Annual public budget allocated to support manufacturing plants for alternative fuels technologies, broken down by alternative fuel and by transport mode.

Consideration of any particular needs during the initial phase of the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructures.

4. Research, technological development and demonstration (RTD&D)

Annual public budget allocated to support alternative fuels RTD&D, broken down by fuel and by transport mode.

5. Targets and objectives

  • estimation of the number of alternative fuel vehicles expected by 2020, 2025 and 2030,

  • level of achievement of the national objectives for the deployment of alternative fuels in the different transport modes (road, rail, water and air),

  • level of achievement of the national targets, year by year, for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure in the different transport modes,

  • information on the methodology applied to take account of the charging efficiency of high power recharging points.

6. Alternative fuels infrastructure developments

Changes in supply (additional infrastructure capacity) and demand (capacity actually used).
