ΤΟ ELVITEN ΣΤΑ ΤΡΙΚΑΛΑ
Τα Τρίκαλα είναι μια μεσαίου μεγέθους πόλη με περίπου 82.000 κατοίκους, με ιστορικό κέντρο της πόλης, πάνω από 608.48 km2 με πυκνότητα πληθυσμού περίπου 134 κατοίκων / km2. Το κλίμα είναι κυρίως μεσογειακού χαρακτήρα, με ζεστά καλοκαίρια και ήπιους χειμώνες, ενώ η θερμοκρασία επηρεάζεται από τα γύρω βουνά.
Το οδικό δίκτυο στα Τρίκαλα καλύπτει 313 χιλιόμετρα. Οι τοπικές δημόσιες συγκοινωνίες αποτελούνται από λεωφορεία και δωρεάν κοινόχρηστα ποδήλατα και αποτελούν οικονομική επιλογή. Εκτιμάται ότι στα Τρίκαλα υπάρχουν 259 αυτοκίνητα (δημόσια και ιδιωτικά), 2 δημόσια λεωφορεία, 70 μοτοσικλέτες και 140 φορτηγά οχήματα – οδικά οχήματα ανά 1.000 πολίτες.
Τα μέσα μαζικής μεταφοράς δεν παρέχουν λύσεις τελευταίου μιλίου στο κέντρο της πόλης. Το ELVITEN θα δημιουργήσει ένα δίκτυο κοινής χρήσης 5 ηλεκτρικών τρίκυκλων, 5 ηλεκτρικών τετράκυκλων και 18 ηλεκτρονικών ποδηλάτων. Το ELVITEN θα προσφέρει ένα εργαλείο κινήτρων και εφαρμογών παρακολούθησης.
Στα Τρίκαλα θα εγκατασταθούν 5 ηλεκτρικά τρίκυκλα, 5 ηλεκτρικά 4χρωματα και 18 ηλεκτρονικά ποδήλατα.
Το ELVITEN θα παρέχει δωρεάν δοκιμές. Στα Τρίκαλα, το ELVITEN αντιμετωπίζει διαμοιραστές και διανομείς.

Recommendations by ELVITEN to planning authorities emerged after COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the needs and habits of all users across our world, these new changes are not only becoming the new normal but will have repercussions in the near future. In this regard, ELVITEN partners created a report “Recommendations for Planning Authorities emerged after COVID-19” to offer to planning authorities some recommendations related to light electric mobility.
The recommendations are based on the results and experience acquired within the ELVITEN project, trends, and market drivers observed during the pandemic period.
Some of the lessons learned are:
- SAFETY is a fundamental service offering to the user.
- REGULATION POLICIES are required to adapt to the behaviour of the different user groups to help the planning of services.
- PARTNERSHIP WITH PRIVATE OPERATORS are required to renew and to develop the offer of innovative services, which are widely accessible and are integrated with other means of transportation.
- ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY will have to be re-launched as the COVID-19 pandemic has got unprecedented challenges, but at the same time provided a chance to rebuild economies in a way which reinforces the connection between human well-being and a healthy environment.
- TECHNOLOGICAL TOOLS are increasingly important to enable data collection and data analysis. Companies should focus on increasing adaptive capacity by looking to better integrate, refocus and in some cases diversify their offer.
ELVITEN believes these lessons learned can help planning authorities to propose new mobility models adapted to the new context, which will affect urban transport systems at least in the short and medium term.

ELVITEN at ERTICO Academy webinar on micro-mobility
On 15 July 2020 ERTICO-ITS Europe organised an online webinar on “Micro -mobility: Now the safe alternative?” where partners DEKRA, the City of Trikala and Ubiwhere participated and discussed about considerations related to safety, use of data, data sharing and city planning related to micro-mobility.
“Particularly in the current climate, micro-mobility is regarded as a safe alternative to overcrowding on public transport, but we need to look beyond just the social distancing guidelines and consider safety related to the existing city infrastructure, regulations and the micro-mobility devices that are being used. Road safety has long been a priority for ERTICO and we are currently working with our Partners to make sure that micro-mobility is truly a safe alternative in all aspects.”, said ERTICO Director of Research & Innovation, Dr. Johanna Tzanidaki.
During the webinar Mr Odisseas Raptis, CEO of e-Trikala (and ELVITEN project partner) spoke on the safety, which is one of the challenges that many cities are faced with when it comes to micro-mobility. Mr. Raptis later introduced ELVITEN to the participants during the presentation on R&D activities in the city of Trikala and how the light electric vehicles are helping the city. Mr Raptis expanded on other challenges of mirco-mobility like user acceptance, market uptake, institutional framework, shared data, and infrastructures and governance.
“By operating small electric vehicles in Trikala and thanks to European-funded projects, we are testing the reactions of the users and negotiating with the Government how we can facilitate all these new technologies. Thanks to micro-mobility solutions we can reduce transport emissions and work towards declaring Trikala a zero emission city in the future.” said Odisseas Raptis.
The webinar on micro-mobility was a chance to collect real-case stories, share challenges and successes and set the ground to move forward towards a complete, safe and efficient mobility ecosystem in cities in the near future.
