The European Parliament has just approved a draft directive that will form the backbone of efforts to reduce dependence on oil and increase the consumption of alternative fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), hydrogen, and compressed natural gas (CNG) by 2020, and cut total greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector by 60% by 2050.

In line with the resolution the UK will be legally compelled to install a network of a minimum 70,000 publically accessible electric vehicle charging points, along with hydrogen and natural gas refill stations, by 2020; Germany will have to install 86,000, and Italy 72,000.
