Connecting Europe Facility: CEF Transport Blending Facility (debt+grant) to promote alternative fuel supply infrastructure
The CEF-T Programme (Connecting Europe Facility Transport) promotes the participation of private sector investors and financial institutions in projects that contribute to the environmental sustainability and efficiency of the transport sector in Europe.
This is a blending finance (funding plus grant) to promote alternative fuel supply infrastructures.
ICO, as an Implementing Partner of the European Commission, together with the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA), studies and contributes to the search for eligible projects, offering its own financing to ensure the closure of project financing and thus contributing to the blending operation with the long-term financing of the projects, through loans, capital or any form of repayable support.
This programme is being developed through different calls for proposals. The Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Facility (AFIF) is currently open (within the MFF 21-27) with a budget of 1,575 million euros for the whole of Europe.
