The ELVITEN project is co-funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation of the EU. ELVITEN demonstrates how electric light vehicles (EL-Vs) can be used in urban areas and how they can be integrated into the existing transport network in six European cities: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala. The project proposes replicable usage schemes for EL-Vs such as electric bicycles, tricycles, scooters and quads and involves 21 partners from 9 European countries, including local authorities, universities, research organisations, etc.

The ELVITEN project aims to boost the usage of all categories of EL-Vs in urban environment and ultimately to achieve a mind-shift among users by providing them with a better EL-V experience. To help accelerate the roll-out usage of EL-Vs in cities across Europe, ELVITEN aims to promote the transferability of the ELVITEN usage schemes in 50 Follower European Cities that are interested in developing or already have electric mobility in their city.

The Follower Cities will form a network of ‘ELVITEN cities’ and the ELVITEN project will use its extensive range of knowledge and expertise in electric mobility to provide the ‘ELVITEN cities’ with support to help them better understanding how to boost ownership or sharing of all categories of EL-Vs by systematic and occasional urban travelers by light delivery companies in their city. This support will depend on the needs of the city, but could range from the first steps a city needs to take in understanding the role that electric mobility could play, and gaining political support within the city for it. Right through to helping them work towards planning, developing, specifying, constructing, extending and/or optimising intelligent electric mobility systems within their cities.
