The German ministry for transport and digital infrastructure (BMVI) recently set out a national strategic framework upgrade designed to improve the infrastructure for cars running on alternative fuels. The measures have been approved and they set several ambitious goals, including investments totalling some € 1 billion.
The largest share of the new investment funds, approximately € 440 million, will go into infrastructure for e-mobility such as quick charging stations at motorway service stations around the country. The remainder of the funding will largely benefit hydrogen and natural gas stations.
By investing in this infrastructure Germany wants to continue and expand continues its leading role in mobility and future transport technologies. The continuing advancement and development of alternative engine solutions will create the basis for an energy transition in the automotive sector, resulting in a more sustainable future.
