Slovenian action plan is proposing policies to be integrated into the Operational Programme for the Implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy 2021-2027. There are three priority areas and eight proposed measures of influence making the shift to alternative fuel mobility. Three priority areas are “Infrastructure”, “Means of mobility” and “Improving mobility management and introducing new mobility models”.

The priority 1 – Infrastructure, is currently proposing one measure, the “Incentives for establishing AVG infrastructure”. This measure combines 9 activities related to financial and non-financial incentives for alternative fuel vehicles. 

The priority 2 – Means of mobility, proposes three measures: Supporting the technological development and the economy related to alternative fuel vehicles, Incentives to encourage the use of vehicles on alternative fuels and Removing administrative barriers to alternative fuel vehicles’ deployment with several activities for each of the measure. 

The priority 3 – Improving mobility management and introducing new mobility models, proposes four measures. The first measure is Local / Regional Action Plans for Mobility on Electricity and Other Alternative Fuels, Infrastructure and Multimodal Mobility or Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans’ amandments. It introduces six activities improving the local governance related to alternative fuel mobility. The second measure is “Implementation of an open exchange of information”. This measure proposes two activities on the topic. The third measure is Increasing the utility of public passenger transport with alternative fuel vehicles. This measure combines 9 activities. The fourth measure is “Introducing “mobility as a service” models”, proposing five activities. 

These policies were consolidated with the responsible Ministry, which is supportive of the initiative and fully cooperates within the preparatory group. 

In parallel, this year, the responsible ministries started with the preparation of the law for the mobility on alternative fuel and the law for sustainable mobility. The procedures and accompanying activities for the preparation of the two laws and ongoing project IDACS, are adding a value to the preparation of the policy proposals for the next Programme for the Implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy.
