Original Consultation

1.        Background

The national policy framework (NPF) of actions for the development of alternative fuels in the transport sector in Malta developed as part of the implementation of Directive 2014/94/EU provides measures for the achievement of a more environmentally sustainable transportation. The NPF considers electric vehicles to be a suitable and environmentally beneficial option for road transportation in malta. Electric vehicles may be charged using private charging infrastructure however, in terms of the Directive 2014/94/EU electric vehicles users should also have a non-discriminatory access to publicly accessible charging infrastructure. The Green Paper Towards Cleaner Vehicles on our Roads emphasises that the growth of charging infrastructure expansion is directly related to the development of electromobility and the uptake of electric vehicles. Currently in Malta there are 102 charging points available to the general public and there are plans to increase the number of these charging points.
