The EU Commission launched a call for proposals Thursday under the Connecting Europe Facility for Transport Programme, making EUR 1 billion available to support the deployment of alternative fuels supply.

This is the second phase of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Facility (AFIF) of Connecting Europe (2024-2025) and goes to support objectives set in the new Regulation for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure (AFIR) regarding publicly accessible electric recharging pools and hydrogen refuelling stations across the European Union’s main transport corridors and hubs, as well as objectives set in the ReFuelEU aviation and the FuelEU maritime Regulations.

This call for proposals covers the roll-out of alternative fuels infrastructure for road, maritime, inland waterway and air transport. In addition to the support to high power electricity recharging stations and hydrogen refuelling stations, the following new funding opportunities will be available:

  • Support to Megawatt recharging stations for Heavy Duty Vehicles
  • Support to electricity and hydrogen supply at airports
  • Support to electricity supply and ammonia and methanol bunkering facilities in ports

AFIF supports mature investment projects having received a financing approval letter from an Implementing Partner or from a public or private financial institution established in the EU. Applicants have to submit their proposal electronically via the Funding & Tenders Portal Electronic Submission System.
