Clean & energy-efficient vehicles

Travel options and infrastructure for cleaner vehicles and fleets.

Sometimes a statistic tells the whole story: transport still relies on oil for 94% of its energy needs. With the negative effects of much fossil fuel-powered transport established, the increased use of clean, energy-efficient vehicles and alternative fuels has become an EU policy priority.

Additional impetus is required. Despite more clean vehicles entering the market, uptake has remained slow. To counter this, the EU is supporting and financing the deployment of recharging and refuelling points, notably for long-distance travel and less densely populated areas.

Local authorities can also drive the spread of energy-efficient vehicles through targeted promotion, their procurement activities and policies, and by building easily accessible charging and refuelling infrastructure. At the same time, such infrastructure should not occupy public space to the detriment of active modes.
