In an agreement, the European Parliament and member states have agreed to install electric charging stations for cars on key roads at intervals of at least every 60km (37 miles), with the aim of completing the project by 2026. For trucks, the stations will be placed at intervals of 120km, with half of the required infrastructure expected to be in place by 2028.
Hydrogen refueling stations should be set up at intervals of no more than 200 kilometers by the year 2031.
Starting in 2030, European ports will also be required to provide access to short-side electricity for container and passenger ships. Additionally, all EU member states are now obligated to share their strategies for establishing green bunkering stations. The plan will include refueling infrastructure for electricity, hydrogen, methanol, and ammonia in their ports.
As electric car sales rise, governments will have a legal obligation to increase infrastructure. Besides, Electric car drivers will be able to pay with a bank card anywhere in Europe.
