The STF will help the Commission to advance the Clean Power for Transport strategy and facilitate the implementation of Directive 2014/94/EU on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure. By doing so it will contribute to action regarding the EU's energy and climate goals.
By bringing together Member States and fuel industry stakeholders, the STF will enable a structured dialogue and exchange of best practices and co-ordination. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss the practical issues that could be encountered in the implementation of the directive.
The STF will operate with a plenary, a dedicated secretariat and non-permanent technical sub-groups. The plenary and sub-groups will meet at least once a year until the end of 2020.
The membership of the STF will consist of a maximum of 60 members, including representatives of public and private organisations involved in a number of transport and energy-related areas.
