The European Commission decided to file a lawsuit against Malta and Romania at the EU’s Court of Justice. Both countries have failed to hand in a national strategy for rolling out infrastructure for electric and alternative fuel vehicles.
The European Commission decided to refer Malta and Romania to the Court of Justice of the EU for failing to notify their national policy frameworks under Directive 2014/94/EU on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure.
The national policy frameworks are the main instrument to ensure the coordinated build-up of sufficient infrastructure, including recharging points for electric vehicles and refuelling points for natural gas and hydrogen.
EU Member States were required to notify their national policy frameworks to the Commission by 18 November 2016. To date Malta and Romania have failed to do so.
