11 October 2023, 09:00 (CEST)EV infrastructure: One step closer to one speed EuropeBy: Zuzana Púčiková, Director Public Policy Europe at EVBoxGreat news for current and future Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers: European decision-makers have recently approved the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation, also known as “AFIR”. Thanks to binding minimum targets for EV infrastructure linked to the number of EVs in each country, EV drivers will also benefit from a larger charging network. Despite AFIR’s uniform approach, EV charging still doesn’t fully tap into the EU’s most important achievement over the past 30 years – the Single Market. The Single Market established the “four freedoms” which guarantee free movement of goods, services, capital and people. This is exactly what a Single Market in EV charging would do.
