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.

2nd City Workshop in Rome

On 27 November 2019, ELVITEN city partner – Rome held its second city workshop in the IX EUR City Hall of Rome organised by the dedicated Municipality. Municipality representatives of the workshop included the Capitoline councilor Linda Meleo (responsible for infrastructure), the municipal councilor Alessandro Drago (responsible for Mobility, Suburbs, Community Programs, Simple Rome) and the technical director of the Municipality Giacomo Guastella.

The main topic of the ELVITEN workshop was the long-term sharing of electric bikes. It presented technical aspects, objectives and expectations of the project with a special focus on travel data in Rome, but also of the other pilot cities. During the workshop, an interactive debate with public representatives took place, introducing the possibility of creating soft mobility corridors or routes dedicated to electric vehicles (max. 30 km/h). These corridors aim at improving the infrastructure, optimising the sharing processes and encouraging electric mobility.

The electric vehicles in Rome are registered as two-wheel mopeds and therefore require the use of helmet and a driver’s license. They are usually used for home-work trips, professional or personal purposes throughout the territory of Rome. The 60 bikes are free of charge and target employees of public bodies and private companies based in Rome.

A short video summarising the 2nd workshop in Rome is available (in Italian) on ELVITEN YouTube channel.

ELVITEN ICT tools and dashboard

Different ICT tools have been developed under the ELVITEN project to collect data of the usage of ELVITEN’s means of transport in each city: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala. Data coming from such tools will be used later on to develop efficient business models. You can find below a short summary of all applications developed and used within the ELVITEN project.

Digital Coach app: the app is a fleet monitoring tool sending location and telemetry data to the data warehouse to create a detailed driving analysis. Moreover, a summary of trip and weather is created and transmitted. This app is used in every project city.

Booking App: this app collects booking messages regarding vehicles, charging points and parking spaces. It is currently used in Trikala, Malaga and Bari.

Serious Game App: this app combines elements of fun and entertainment for users of EL-Vs in project cities, providing riders with useful information about the project, the benefits of the use of EL-Vs and touristic or interesting places in the city. It is currently used in Trikala, Malaga and Bari and will be soon available in Rome.

Smart App: this app is an end-user application that allows an ELVITEN user to interact with the incentive system and fill in questionnaires. It is used in Trikala, Malaga, Bari, Genoa and Rome.

D-Mobility app: the app offers charging services to Duferco Energia e-mobility customers. It is only used in Genoa.

There is also a new tool on the ELVITEN website – dashboard, which provides up to date information (updated every 24 hours) regarding EL-Vs usage in all six European pilot cities. The data being provided on the website comes among other sources from the black boxes fixed on the ELVITEN EL-Vs. Find the dashboard here and check how each city is performing.

Second ELVITEN city workshop in Trikala

ELVITEN project partner in Trikala organised on 26 October 2019, the 2nd city workshop. The local event took place at the GiSeMi Innovation Hub in Trikala. The attendees of the event (around 30 participants) were encouraged to take a ride in one of 4-wheeler Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) which are provided for project demonstrations in Trikala.

Mr Odisseas Raptis (CEO of e-trikala S.A.), kicked off the workshop by welcoming the participants. He presented the ELVITEN project in detail, the original idea behind the project (why EL-Vs are not well known and used) and how the ELVITEN project acts as a solution to this challenge. Mr Charis Kalliaras (Special Advisor to the Mayor) held a presentation about the usage of EL-Vs for building sustainable urban mobility. He talked about the example from Trikala regarding the state of LVs/ELVs, how to improve the potential of use of ELVs and how ELVITEN is acting in this regard.

Mr George Gorgogetas (e-trikala) talked about the challenges regarding the project in Trikala so far, the demonstration status and the users. He pointed out that many people were acquainted with use of EL-Vs for the first time through ELVITEN. He also stressed that ELVITEN users enjoy riding these vehicles and their usage can have a positive impact in the city center that is often congested by regular cars. A number of e-bikes were provided at the event premises for participants during a coffee break. Mr Vasilis Apostolakoulis (e-trikala) presented ELVITEN users’ opinions and their problems such as: vehicles battery issues and their limited mirror view of the road on the sides.

Q&A session concluded the 2nd city workshop in Trikala, with topics such vehicles’ safety, city infrastructure, charging points and future sustainability of the ELVITEN project and EL-Vs.
