EU mandates contactless payments for EV charging and hydrogen refuelling stations

8 august 2023

The European Parliament has approved a new set of rules governing electric vehicle (EV) charging and hydrogen fuelling stations that requires service providers to enable drivers of alternative fuel vehicles to make contactless payments with a card or mobile device without needing a subscription when charging or refuelling, according to NFC World.

“Users of alternative fuel vehicles will have to be able to pay easily at recharging points (with payment cards or contactless devices and without a need to have a subscription), while the price of these ‘fuels’ will have to be displayed per kWh, kg or per minute/session.

MEPs ensured that the Commission will set up an EU ‘database’ on alternative fuels data by 2027 to provide consumers with information on the availability, waiting times or price at different stations,” the EU says.
