By strategically increasing targets across the board, it could spur on investment and innovation within the mobility space whereas reducing the targets could be detrimental to its development.

This has been urgently called by The International Road Transport Union (IRU), European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), Transport & Environment (T&E) and Hydrogen Europe.

Increasing targets could also showcase to stakeholders, confidence in hydrogen technologies and again spur on investment in the industry. This could have a positive outcome in attaining sustainability goals.

The joint statement says that hydrogen refuelling stations have to be fully deployed along both the TEN-T core and comprehensive road networks with sufficient minimum daily capacities by meeting the AFIR targets at the latest by 2030.

This will also ensure that the pre-2030 ambition matches the roll-out of hydrogen-fuelled heavy-duty vehicles in the second half of the decade.
