Detail of outcome
The final outcome of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive consultation was released on 5 September 2017.
Main decisions are the:
- removal of a proposed 10 day period for infrastructure operators to correct non-compliant infrastructure
- amendment of civil sanction penalties ensuring any sanctions are in line with the cost of replacing the infrastructure
- addition of a one year grace period for providing ‘ad-hoc’ access to alternative fuelling infrastructure, provided the infrastructure is updated by 17th November 2018
19 responses were received in the consultation.
This consultation provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the proposed method of transposing the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive into UK law.
This introduces for the first time requirements around the provision, accessibility and design standards of refuelling infrastructure for alternatively fuelled vehicles and ships.
It also sets out the proposed method for enforcing compliance with the requirements set out in the directive.
