#LetsGoElectric

ELVITEN electric bicycles, scooters, tricycles and quadricycles are taking to the streets in six cities around Europe.

You have to listen very carefully to hear an electric light vehicle. But keep your eyes open and you’ll see one of ours.

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 Genoa

On 17 December 2019, Municipality of Genoa held the ELVITEN second city workshop at the Municipality premises. In the opening and welcoming speech, a representative from the European Projects unit at the Municipality of Genoa introduced the overview of ELVITEN project, activities already developed and other actions in progress.

Afterwards, the audience was introduced to the Genoa pilot site and demonstrations. Firstly presenting test cases such as use cases, a system of incentives and smartAPP, Regional Support Group, new infrastructures (park and electrical charging point). As in the other pilot sites, ELVITEN aims at simplifying the travel and parking services for users by addressing specific clusters: tourists, last-mile deliveries and businesses. In Genoa, the overall objective is to reward behaviour of citizens who invest in electric mobility and to offer equipped parking areas in four strategic points in the city centre with E-LVs charging possibilities.

Secondly, project partner TBridge explained regulations and trends of E-LVs in Europe and the typology of users and their habits in the city. Another project partner Duferco highlighted the advantages of using E-LVs, including a reduction of pollution and traffic congestion and their economic benefits (incentives, minor maintenance costs etc). It also presented the recharging process in Genoa and the App “D-Mobility”, which supports the charging process, and it was developed as part of the ELVITEN project.

Overall, the participants agreed that in order to enable the dissemination of usage of light electric vehicles, in addition to dedicated charging points, adaptation and standardisation of charging sockets on vehicles should be considered.

2nd City Workshop in Malaga

On 11 December 2019, the ELVITEN second city workshop in Malaga took place at the premises of the University of Malaga. In the first session of the workshop, Francisco Salas (Managing Director of Promalaga) and Prof. Dr. D. Alejandro Rodríguez Gómez (Director of the Engineering Faculty) welcomed the audience with an introductory speech, followed by a presentation of the ELVITEN project by Isabel Pascual Villamor.

The following sessions included presentations and discussions about sustainable mobility in Malaga. The topic was presented with data and statistics on the number of vehicles, the connections to other towns, and the number of trips by different means of transport, also comparing Malaga’s transportation strategy with other cities of its size. Many students participated in the debate about the Malaga model and how to contribute to increasing sustainability in the city.

Moreover, other sustainable mobility city initiatives were discussed during the workshop. For instance, another H2020 funded project such as the ‘Meister’ was presented. The objective of the project is to change the electric mobility market, providing interoperable platforms and services to cities for easy and barrier-free access to the charging and billing service for electric vehicles. Also, the use of renewable energy sources and self-generation methods for recharging electric vehicles requires improvementThe municipal officials have highlighted the interest in Malaga to continue being a pioneer in the installation of these technologies that involve a direct reduction of CO2 pollution in the city.

2nd City Workshop in Bari

On 3 December 2019, the Polytechnic University of Bari and the Commune of Bari jointly organised the second ELVITEN city workshop in the facilities of the Bari museum of photography.

After a welcoming speech, the workshop introduced sustainable mobility and European projects on smart mobility in Bari. Among others, the project ‘M.U.V.T. – Mobilità Urbana Vivibile e Tecnologica’ was presented, which is another running sustainable mobility project in the city. Afterward, a general overview of the ELVITEN project was given to the 34 participants, following by the technical details of all EL-V’s with a special emphasis on the ones used in Bari.

In the last sessions of the workshop, the first results and the performance of Bari as a pilot site were reviewed. The report presented the involved companies in the demonstration phase, showing the operative e-bikes and the vehicles that need to be ensured to be in circulation and the total number of trips done for each company, showing the trips traveled by each vehicle, the distance and the last trips done. In Bari, the vehicles are offered by the Polytechnic University of Bari via long term rental service for employees of public authority and companies. For the pilot test, 10 vehicles are offered for public sharing managed by the municipality and 65 vehicles for the rental services.

The workshop ended with brainstorming discussions on the next steps and future actions in order to summarise what should be done for the success of the ELVITEN pilot test in Bari.
