WHAT IS AN EL-V?

On two, three or four wheels, electric light vehicles are quiet, cheaper to run and produce zero CO2 emissions.

 

How they can make
your life better

EL-Vs help you get through traffic and are easier to park. Use them for journeys where public transport doesn’t reach your destination. Take the kids to school, do your shopping, or just head off to your local park – when more people use EL-Vs, there’ll be more room for green spaces and the air will be that much cleaner.

ELVITEN Ambassadors

Did you know that ELVITEN project has project Ambassadors? They are local representatives in ELVITEN demonstration cities.

As part of the awareness campaign, which has started even before the pilot and the real demonstrations started, an ambassador per city was chosen by the city partners to promote the ELVITEN project at local level, to support the campaign and demonstrations in Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala. Ambassadors have been playing an important role during the ongoing campaign and demonstrations with the main aim at increasing the attention of the public towards the project, its implementation and results.

Know the Ambassadors in ELVITEN demonstration cities:

  • Bari – Antonio Decaro (Mayor of Bari)
  • Genoa – Franco Malerba (Astronaut), Vittorio Brumotti (Free style biker) and Marina Minetti (Radio speaker)
  • Malaga – Francisco de la Torre (Mayor of Malaga)
  • Rome – Virginia Raggi (Mayor of Rome) and Linda Meleo (Mobility Assessor of Rome)
  • Trikala – Dimitrios Papastergiou (Mayor of Trikala)

 

The project Ambassadors have supported the ELVITEN project and the partners, and were selected by each city leader. A letter of agreement was needed to formalise the support.

The presence of ELVITEN Ambassadors in local media and supporting ELVITEN partners is crucial in rising the awareness among the public and in changing the attitude towards more green and sustainable urban mobility.

Interested to become a Follower City?

ELVITEN project aims to boost the usage of all categories of electric light vehicles (EL-Vs) in urban environment and ultimately achieve a mind shift among users by providing them with a better EL-V experience.

To accelerate the roll-out usage of EL-V’s in cities across Europe (Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala), ELVITEN aims to promote the transferability of ELVITEN usage schemes in numerous Follower European Cities that are interested in developing or already have electric mobility in their city.

Three offerings will be available for ELVITEN Follower Cities:

  1. Demonstrators – Follower Cities can learn from ELVITEN demonstration cities, the new activities that are relevant and tailored according to their stage of electric mobility development.
  2. Specialist Webinar – these webinars will bring small groups of ELVITEN cities together to address shared and common challenges, also based on the requests made in the statement of interest.
  3. Expert Group – this offering will pool all the knowledge, experience and expertise of the ELVITEN consortium partners and it will be used to address specific challenges and questions posed either by ELVITEN Follower Cities, or identified in discussions with Follower Cities.

To become a Follower City, interested cities will sign an agreement (“Statement of interest”) with ELVITEN project and then will receive support and guidance from the ELVITEN partners in order to either gain support for, establish or ultimately grow electric mobility systems in their cities.

If you are interested in becoming a ELVITEN Follower City, get in touch with us via an email: info@elviten-project.eu.

The future of electric vehicles may be with two-wheelers

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the global demand for gasoline powered vehicles is slowing down. The recession will put consumers to suppress demand for purchases. Consumers are expected to look towards cheaper and efficient transportation modes. Under these new trends analysts say that inexpensive motorcycles and scooters will make up the largest group of new vehicles hitting the world’s roads in the next decade out of which electric bike will have major share.

With car sales slowing in developed countries, electric two wheeler may have their moment. According to projections from the Energy and Resources Institute, a New Delhi think tank – hundreds of millions of vehicles will be sold in emerging markets like India and China. Electric two wheelers are already showing environmental impact, according to the International Energy Agency, a Paris-based energy watchdog. Electric two- and three-wheelers on the roads avoided more pollutants than all electric cars combined in 2018, the most recent year for which data is available, according to the IEA. India’s government has said it wants 30% of new vehicles to be electric in the next decade, and has even higher goals for two-wheelers. In China, the IEA estimates 90% of two-wheelers will be electric by 2030.

In Brussels (Belgium) mobility sharing company Billy bike announced the use of electric bicycles doubled since the beginning of lock-down on 18 March. In March, Billy bike announced 500 minutes of free rides for essential personnel who help keep the city running. Although the company saw decline in profits, soon the scheme began to rise and became a hit in the city. Other mobility sharing companies decided to pull their vehicles due to the COVID-19, but Billy bike took the risk. Eventually it paid off and the company received twice as many registrations and usage of bikes than usual. The CEO of Billy Bike Pierre de Schaetzen told La LibreDuring the evenings and weekends, there are more often longer rides in the Forêt de Soignes or along the Channel.”

He added, the reluctance to use public transport due to to health safety might be the reason for increase in bike sharing. He said “We even see that car drivers are also using bicycles at the moment, Many people are discovering cycling as a mode of transport in Brussels.”
