First report on the application of Directive 2009/33/EC on the promotion of clean and energy-efficient road transport vehicles (also known as 'Clean Vehicle Directive'), and on supporting actions taken by Member States, as required by Article 10 of this Directive.

Further information:

The Clean Vehicle Directive aims at stimulating the market for clean and energy-efficient vehicles, thus contributing in the transport sector to the energy, climate and environment policies of the EU. The Directive applies to vehicles purchased by contracting authorities and contracting entities as defined by the public procurement Directives, and to public transport operators as defined by the Regulation on public passenger transport service.

The deadline for transposition was set for 4 December 2010. Implementation in a number of Member States was considerably delayed. In addition, the absence of reporting obligations for Member States and the inconsistencies in the data available, made the analysis difficult. Thus this report can provide only a limited qualitative analysis, and that mostly on the basis of case studies. Detailed material was provided in a study prepared for the European Commission.
