At its plenary session of 26 November 2020, on proposal of DG MOVE, the Sustainable Transport Forum decided to set up three new sub-groups, including the sub-group on a common data approach for electric mobility and other alternative fuels.
This sub-group will assist the Commission in mapping and executing the policy elements to formalise and to put in place an open data ecosystem for electro-mobility and, to a wider extent, for other alternative fuels. In particular, the sub-group will look into the different data dimensions (aggregation, quality, sharing, reusability, provision, etc.) and data types (location, availability, price, payment methods, etc.) required to enable the future creation of new digital services in the alternative fuels market. The sub-group will build on the work of the PSA IDACS, assisting the Commission in the preparation of further rules and requirements in terms of the different data dimensions, as part of the revision of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive, the ITS Directive and the Delegated Regulation on Real-time Transport Information.
Following a call for applications, the Director-General for Mobility and Transport has appointed twenty-seven members and one observer to this sub-group.
The sub-group will also discuss and adopt Terms of Reference at its first meeting, after which these will be published here.
