Germany expands infrastructure for alternative fuels
Germany's ministry for transport and digital infrastructure has set out a national strategic framework upgrade designed to improve the infrastructure for cars running from alternative fuels.
The federal cabinet has approved the measure, which has set several ambitious goals and includes investments totalling some EUR 1 billion.
The largest amount of investment - about EUR 440 million - goes into e-mobility infrastructure such as quick-charging-stations at motorway service stations around the country. The rest of the funding mostly benefits hydrogen and natural gas stations.
By investing into this infrastructure Germany continues to safeguard its leading role in mobility and future transport technologies, continuing to advance the development of alternative engine solutions and creating the basis for an energy transition in the automotive sector, resulting in a more sustainable future.
