 We are a group of business school students who carry a folder on the establishment of GNR in europe.
 To do this we would like to know how was passed Directive 2009/30/EC (Why, who, when, how, how much).
 What are the means allocated for the implementation of this Directive in the member countries?
 Could you also tell us if you step back for the results thereof?

 We want to thank you for your attention to our request.

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA) regarding directive 2009/30/EC.

Based on your question, I am not sure how familiar you are with the working remit of the EEA. European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies.

The EU Commission has the responsibility of making new legislative proposals. These proposals are then adopted by the Council and the parliament, and implemented in the Member States by the national authorities. The Commission has the responsibility of overseeing that Member States act in accordance with EU law. The role of the EEA is to supply all parties concerned with relevant environmental information.

The European Commission is divided into 36 Directorate Generals (DGs). DG Environment is the branch of the Commission responsible for European environmental policy and legislation. The homepage of the DG Environment is located at:

You can find information about the 2009/30/EC directive at the following link:

If the website does not provide you with sufficient information, you may also contact DG Environment directly. Relevant contact details can be viewed at:

Since the individual countries are responsible for implementing EU policies, you may find it useful to contact the responsible national authorities in the countries of your interest. For practical examples on how EU legislation is implemented into national law, I suggest that you contact the national authorities in the countries of your interest. Relevant contact links to European national authorities can be obtained at:

Lastly, I would like to refer you to the work regarding transport performed by the EEA. Here, all related EEA products can be viewed and downloaded free-of-charge. The EEA transport theme section is located at:

Hopefully, this information may be useful to you. Good luck with your research.

Kind regards
