European Union (Deployment of Alternative Fuels Infrastructure) Regulations 2018

16 October 2018

These Regulations set a common set of standards for certain alternative fuel infrastructure (electricity and hydrogen for vehicles and seagoing ships at berth) in the Republic of Ireland.
The aim of these Regulations is to increase the use of alternatively fuelled vehicles and the environmentally beneficial practices of using electricity to power berthed ships.
These Regulations transpose the requirements of Directive 2014/94/EU on the Deployment of Alternative Fuels Infrastructure.
Recharging and refuelling infrastructure refers to the equipment required to recharge electric vehicles and refuel hydrogen fuelled vehicles. The main requirement is that such charge points must be available for use by the general public and be compliant with the relevant standard.
