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 Workshop in Málaga
On the 28 April, the second ELVITEN workshop took place at the Trade Fair and Congress in the city of Málaga in the context of the 9th Green Cities Forum. The event, organised by Promálaga, was an excellent occasion to present the ELVITEN project to Spanish stakeholders, and hear their inputs regarding the implementation of the ELVITEN scheme in this city.
The workshop was moderated by Isabel Pascual Villamor from Promálaga and had the participation of several project partners such as Villy Portouli, from ICCS, who presented the project. Andrew Winder, from ERTICO, who showed some of the results of the Public Perception Survey that was launched at the end of 2017 and that gathered more than 7000 answers on the attitudes towards EL-Vs. In addition, Sonja Pajkovska from Hubject spoke about the deployment of EL-Vs in European cities taking the city of Berlin as an example.
Spanish stakeholders also took part in the debate. Researchers from the University of Málaga, Guadalupe Gonzales and Irene Bautista made a presentation on the evolution of the transport system in Málaga. An important intervention was made by Miguel Ruiz, president of the National Urban Association (ATUC) and the managing director of Málaga’s public transport company (EMT). Mr. Ruiz explained some of the challenges the public transport is facing in the city and made emphasis on the importance of projects, such as ELVITEN, for the integration of alternative modes of mobility to the traditional public transportation systems.
The full-day event ended with an open discussion where participants raised some questions, concerns and comments regarding the project objectives and challenges.

ELVITEN project workshops
The ELVITEN project started holding a set of workshops in different cities of Europe with the aim to present the project to local stakeholders and city authorities. The first workshop took place in the city of Bari, in Italy on the 13 April 2018 and had the participation of several project partners, including the Municipality the Bari, FIA, ICCS and Kiburtz.
The idea behind the workshops is to approach key local players who will contribute in the preparation of the project demonstrations that are starting late this year and that seek to introduce Electric Light Vehicles (ELV-s) to citizens in six European cities.
This week, the project held its workshops in the city of Rome and Trikala where partners and stakeholders had the opportunity to discuss on how to make mobility in European cities more sustainable and integrate different types of ELV-s such as e-bikes and e-scooters into the public transport network.
