WE Funding – CEF – Support…
Funds for: To assist Member States with the implementation of Article 7.3 of the Directive
Main beneficiaries: Member States/or relevant bodies designated under their authority

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– To support a consistent implementation of the provisions of Article 7.3 of the Directive in the Member States;
– To define the format, contents and location of the information to be displayed at the filling stations on the basis of the methodology adopted by the Commission Implementing Regulation;
– To carry out pilot actions to assess consumer understanding/feedback/behaviour concerning the format, contents and location of the information to be displayed at the filling stations on fuel prices for comparison and to provide recommendations/guidelines for a harmonized implementation of Article 7.3 of the Directive. These recommendations will be presented to the Commission, for further discussion with the Member States and coherent application in all Member States;
– To support Member States in making information available to consumer at the filling/charging stations and also via digital tools (such as for example, a dedicated website and/or user application) to ensure consumers/users can make a straightforward comparison between the fuel costs of vehicles with different fuel types. The portal/app shall be connected to the relevant filling stations to transmit the updated fuel prices;
– To inform and raise awareness of alternative fuel suppliers, media and consumers on the methodology described in the Commission Implementing Regulation

Priorities
– Member States shall provide information on fuel prices to allow consumers to compare between the fuel/running costs of vehicles with different fuels in a common unit. For that purpose the method of “euros/national currencies per 100 km” will be applied, as established in the Commission Implementing
Regulation on Fuel Price Comparison, which is expected to be adopted on 2 May 2018

Among financed actions
– Dissemination of the fuel price methodology in each of the participating Member State;
– Definition of the contents, format and location of the information on fuel price for comparison, to be displayed at fuelling stations;
– Pilot action to test different the options concerning format, contents and location of fuel prices for comparison at the filling stations;
– Consistent implementation of the provisions of Article 7.3 of the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Directive in all MS;
– Development of a portal/online tool to display fuel prices/costs
