  11. 11. Clean Power for Transport Communication EC has identified two main causes for lack of alternative fuel infrastructure: 1. The technology is substantially mature but the standards are not common EU-wide, thereby discouraging potential infrastructure investors, car manufacturers and consumers. 2. The co-ordination failure among vehicle manufactures, infrastructure providers, national authorities and final users must be addressed. Initiatives addressed at promoting infrastructure appear necessary to break this deadlock. Among others “the Commission will facilitate information exchange and coordinated regional action across the EU with the European Electromobility Observatory.”
  12. 12. Clean Power for Transport (COM 2013/17) Three policy options: 1.No additional policy intervention; current legislative initiatives, national announcements for the deployment of infrastructure, and continuation of previous EU and Member States’ programmes and incentives; 2.EU to issue recommendations on the application of standards and recommendations on basic criteria and indicative targets for all alternative fuels. 3.EU to set out requirements for alternative fuels infrastructure for Member States. Also basic criteria for minimum infrastructure coverage; binding targets for the most mature fuel technologies (electricity, and LNG for waterborne transport). For hydrogen and natural gas (LNG and CNG) for road transport, the targets would be indicative.
  13. 13. Clean Power for Transport – Investment costs “Avoided fuel use increases progressively over the decades 2010-2030 from about €610 million per year in 2020 to about €9.3 bn per year in 2030 under Policy Option 4”.
  14. 14. Clean Power for Transport: objectives 2020 FCEV Infrastructure Objective BEV Infrastructure Objectives • Existing hydrogen refuelling stations are connected via the TEN-T Core Network with a maximum distance of 300 km between stations by 2020. • EU benchmark number of 4 million EVs on the road in the EU by 2020; • For hydrogen, a first step towards market opening would require linking existing and planned refuelling stations • The number of recharging points for EVs reaches at least 10% publicly accessible; • Market tests have shown that each EV needs two recharging points (at home and at work), and about 10% of all publicly accessible.

  16. 16. Energy technologies and Innovation • On 2 May 2013, the European Commission published its Communication on energy technologies and innovation COM (2013) 253. • An Integrated Roadmap should be developed, under the guidance of the SET Plan Steering Group, incorporating the key principles and measures identified in this Communication: consolidate the (up dated) technology roadmaps of the SET Plan while retaining the technology specificities; cover the entire research and innovation chain from basic research to demonstration and market roll-out; • Member States and the Commission should develop an Action Plan on coordinated and/or joint investments by mid-2014, by individual Member States, between Member States and with the EU that go beyond grant programmes and include financial engineering instruments and procurements. • The Action Plan will contain different modes of implementation such as alignment of Member States and EC funding on priorities identified in the integrated roadmap and joint investments between Member States or/and with the European Union.
  17. 17. EU Roadmap for energy storage 2030 17 April 2013, the European Association for the Storage of Energy (EASE) launched the Recommendations for a European Energy Storage Technology Development Roadmap towards 2030
