Electrified l-category vehicles integrated into transport and ELECTRICITY NETWORKS
THE ELVITEN PROJECT
ELVITEN demonstrates the usefulness of light electrified vehicles for urban transportation. Our focus is on bicycles, scooters, tricycles and quadricycles (EL-VS). We work for more innovative, more sustainable and more connected urban mobility in Europe.
ELVITEN invited to the EPP Group Conference in Athens
The ELVITEN project participated in the conference organised by the European People’s Party Group in the Grande Bretagne Hotel in Athens on 7 February 2019. It was an event dedicated to the members of the EPP Group and journalists from various European countries.
ICCS and more specifically the I-SENSE group, presented the vision of the project, the planned activities and also deployed the opportunity to share the ELVITEN idea among European policy makers. Within a short presentation, the I-SENSE members briefly presented how this idea came up and how it was transfigured into a project as well as its social benefits. Attendees had a fruitful discussion about smart cities, future steps and the social circumstances in Europe for young people and other important issues relevant to the current affairs.
In parallel, the ELVITEN project was present with a booth where participants were able to find out further information about the project and its contribution to a better daily life. A light electric vehicle also travelled from Trikala to Athens for the ELVITEN booth, attracting the visitors while the most daring tried it out. The Chairman of the EPP Group, Mr.Manfred Weber, and the President of Nea Dimokratia (Greece), Mr. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, visited the booth and expressed interest to find out more information about the project and finally tested the ELVITEN EL-V.

Stakeholders in Malaga ready to support ELVITEN
Aiming at exchanging knowledge and best practices and enlarging the project network in a local context, ELVITEN partners have been inviting stakeholders in the six ELVITEN cities to join the Regional Support Groups (RSGs). Recently, the project made public the list of companies, institutions, and bodies that will support the project in Málaga, one of the project pilot sites.
In total, 17 companies and institutions signed the RSG agreements in the Spanish city, among which are the Empresa Malagueña de Transporte (EMT) and relevant academic institutions such as the University of Málaga.
This constitutes a major step towards ELVITEN objective of encouraging the mobility users and fleet operators to include Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) in their daily use.
Find the new ELVITEN supporters here:
The tasks of the RSGs are manifold: on the one side, they will engage companies, associations, authorities and other actors outside the ELVITEN project consortium who will support the demonstrations.
Members may include electric vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators, charging point operators, road infrastructure operators, public authorities, electrical distribution system operators, service providers and other organisations and bodies involved or interested in electromobility. This also includes academics, research organisations and the media.
On the other hand, members of the Regional Support Groups will help to better understand and clarify the market needs and expectations. In addition, they will support disseminating the project’s achievements and ensure visibility in a local context.
Members of the RSG will benefit from visibility at the ELVITEN events and activities and as well as the promotion of their brands through the project channels, website, and social media. Furthermore, the members of the RSG will be informed about relevant project developments and achievements and they will be invited to meetings and workshops.
ELVITEN: ready to transform the mobility in Trikala
The ELVITEN project will soon start the demonstration of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) in the city of Trikala. From the end of this month, citizens of Greece’s first smart city will start seeing around the ELVITEN three-wheelers and four-wheelers EL-Vs.
In total, the city of Trikala is deploying 10 tricycles and 10 quadricycles which has been provided by the Swiss company Kyburz, one of the 21 project partners. The objective of these demonstrations is to evaluate the usefulness of this specific type of vehicles in Trikala, make Trikala’s citizens more familiar with the EL-Vs and finally encourage ICE vehicle users to switch to more sustainable means of transportation.
The deployment of the EL-Vs in Trikala, one of the six ELVITEN locations, will be accompanied by an awareness campaign in which all citizens are welcome to participate by sharing the #LetsGoElectric over the social media everytime they see one of the electric vehicles and share their opinions over electromobility.
With the objective of encouraging citizens to contribute to make Trikala a more sustainable and greener city, the ELVITEN partners in the city has put in place a number of incentives for those achieving the highest record toward using ELVITEN services and apps. The awards will range from useful everyday goodies (e.g. bottles of water, mugs, helmets etc.), to more entertaining services such as free cinema tickets, Mill of Elves Magic Park Free cards and Mill Of Elves gift Packages, free swimming pool subscription and much more.
Stay tuned for what is coming next!
