ELVITEN Interview Series – Hubject

This is a new interview, as part of ELVITEN interview series, in which Ricarda Mendy, R&D Project Coordinator at HUBJECT shares her role and contribution to the project implementation, and views on urban mobility.

Enjoy the reading!

A short introduction of your organisation

Hubject is a dynamic company in the future industry of electromobility. Since our founding in 2012, we have made it our mission to drive forward the development of electric mobility. With more than 300 partners, the Hubject platform is the biggest international digital B2B market place for services related to the charging of electric vehicles. More than 140.000 charge points on three continents are connected to the open Hubject platform. Since 2012, we have been connecting different market players in order to create a digital and cross-border charging network for electric vehicles – the intercharge network. Our portfolio addresses e.g. charge point operators, emobility service providers, energy suppliers, fleet operators, car sharing companies, service card providers or automotive manufacturers.

What is your task and responsibility in the ELVITEN project?

As the project manager for Hubject, I am responsible to make sure that we fulfil our role within the project the best way possible and contribute to this EU project with our competencies and resources in the most efficient and most effective way. That also means to make sure that deadlines for deliverables are met and our promises from the project proposals kept.

Content wise, I did data research and created input for the data analyses and guidelines after the demonstrations took place.

At the same time, I am involved on a very operational level. I took care of designing the sharing scheme for our demonstration with 10 e-Scooters in Berlin, ordered all the equipment, implemented the pilot, developed marketing strategies and monitored the data generation. Thankfully, during the demonstration I had support from our fleet manager who took care of the user coordination as well as the maintenance of the scooter.

What is your interest in joining the ELVITEN project?

Our core business at Hubject is creating a seamless charging experience in the emobility world, for which we created Europe’s leading e-Roaming platform. We wanted to widen our horizon and expand our focus from regular EVs to Electric-light vehicles and get an early foot in the door as they become more popular in modern transport systems. Up until today, public charging is not yet a common thing for EL-Vs, but there are a few interesting concepts that are being tested at the moment (e.g. battery swapping) that we are excited to learn about as well as about the user and charging behaviour that we can observe in the data outcome of the ELVITEN project.

What is your opinion on Electric-Light Vehicles?

I think they will definitely play a big role in future urban transport systems. We might still be in kind of an experimental phase, where various vehicle types are still being tested and infrastructure in cities still needs to be adapted. But in the long run, I think they will be very valuable for the widely accepted goals of getting rid of cars in city centres and creating an emission free environment in urban places.

Could you explain the impact of EL-Vs on urban mobility? 

The advantages of EL-Vs are multifaceted and can potentially impact urban mobility via multiple and even unexpected channels. Even though the characteristic of EL-Vs being pretty low-noise is theoretically widely known, it was actually another level for our scooter users when experiencing it for the first time. We are so used to the smell and noise of today’s conventional traffic as well as to traffic jams in city centres that EL-Vs have the potential of taking over almost a revolutionary role in changing but also complementing today’s urban mobility (e.g. as a last-mile solution combined with public transport).

What do you think about the future market for urban mobility?

The current market for urban mobility is very innovative and experimental. That also entails a lot of fluctuation of new market players joining and leaving the scene. I hope that the future market holds a place for the most resilient and long-term thinking ones. Of course, this also needs to be accompanied by according policies and laws that give new and unconventional forms of urban transport a chance and creates an environment for their needs. That sometimes means that traditional industries have to experience cutbacks, but I think there is no other choice than making those bold decisions for creating a healthier environment for everybody and saving a little piece of our home planet in each city at the end of the day.

ELVITEN organises a webinar on 1 September

ELVITEN demonstrates how electric light vehicles (EL-Vs) can be used in urban areas and be integrated into the existing transport network of six European cities: Berlin, Roma, Bari, Genoa, Malaga, and Trikala.

During these demonstrations, ELVITEN has sought to make users more familiar and facilitate them to use EL-Vs instead of ICE vehicles for their private transport and for light urban deliveries. It has also collected information sets made of real usage data, traces from dedicated ICT tools, and users’ opinions after real trips.

The information and data collected will be used to generate detailed guidelines and business models for service providers, planning authorities, and manufacturers in order to make EL-Vs more attractive and more integrated in the transport and electricity networks.

In this regard, ELVITEN partners organise a webinar on Experiences and recommendations for EL-Vs usage in urban environments in pre and post COVID -19 era” which will be held on 1 September 2020, from 10.00 am to 12.00 am.

ELVITEN wishes interested stakeholders and members to participate in the webinar to discuss and understand the COVID-19 impact on e-mobility along with some recommendations.  The webinar will also have a question & answer session where you can interact with the panellists.

Innovating cities policy report for EU R&I sustainable urban development

Many of the challenges like economic, social and environmental that Europe is facing have strong urban aspect. The rapid population growth, climate change, loss of biodiversity, migration, unemployment and social exclusion are some of the major problems that are affecting the people living in urban environment such as the cities. Due to this very reason, the necessity of making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable is a global objective which requires innovative, holistic and people centred solutions.

In this regard, the European Commission has recently released a report “Innovating Cities Policy Report for EU R&I Sustainable Urban Development” which capitalises on 30 years of successful EU-funded research on sustainable urban development. The report relies on the analysis of a the knowledge, ideas and best practises from 41 EU-funded research projects.

The report also highlights the need for integrated policy research solutions to the existing societal challenges that can generate policy benefits and co-benefits simultaneously delivering socioeconomic, environmental, and political objectives for regional, local city authorities, civil society, political representatives, the private sector and industry.

In the report you can find highlights and outputs of 41 EU projects thematically structures according to the eight sections below:

  1. Climate adaptation and resilience.
  2. Sustainable land use and nature based solutions.
  3. Resource efficiency and circular economy.
  4. Air quality and health.
  5. Mobility.
  6. Energy transition including energy efficient buildings.
  7. Social cohesion, well being and diversity.
  8. Social innovation and citizen science.

At the end, the report presents the overall lessons learnt. Some of which you can find below:

  • Truly smart cities are reflections of the people who live, work, and create within them. Our cities and public spaces are integral to the arts, innovation, culture, democracy and sustainability.
  • There is also the need to recognise urban knowledge and social diversity as a capital.
  • Cities are the major contributors to challenges related to climate change, air quality, waste, health, transport, the economy, social cohesion, immigration, natural disasters and natural resources consumption.

ELVITEN Interview Series – ICOOR

This is a new interview, as part of ELVITEN interview series, in which we present ELVITEN partner – ICOOR (Interuniversity Consortium for Optimization and Operation Research), their tasks in the project, and views on Electric Light-Vehicles and urban mobility.

Enjoy the reading!

ICOOR is a research centre aimed at promoting research and studies in Optimization, Operation Research and related domains. Operations Research (OR) is the discipline of applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions in order to optimize products, processes, and business.

By using mathematical modeling to analyze complex situations and solution algorithms, operations research gives the power to make more effective decisions and build more productive systems based on real data, consideration of available options, careful predictions of outcomes and estimates of potential risks.

In the ELVITEN project, four ICOOR universities are involved:

  • University of Modena and Reggio Emilia,
  • Polytechnic of Bari,
  • University of Trieste,
  • Polytechnic of Milan.

Within the ELVITEN project, ICOOR was responsible for the definition of KPIs, the set-up of a demonstration’s methodology and for the organization of the demonstration of Bari. We deployed the Serious Games app and our team was the leader of the task aimed at the definition of the Study questions and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Finally, we are strongly contributing to the evaluation process and to the organization of the final event.

We are convinced that no innovation, no progress is truly such if it is not developed in an environmentally sustainable perspective. This is why we believe in electric vehicles, in their development, in their improvement, and in their existence within cities.

People are often not aware of the comfortable, economic and ecological alternatives with which everyone can move in their everyday lives. This is why we immediately trusted in the ELVITEN project: because it allows us to show that a sustainable, comfortable, and efficient alternative is truly possible in the management of our urban mobility.

With the arrival of COVID-19 in our lives, there have been numerous changes in urban mobility: we must take into consideration new spaces, new numbers, new needs.

We believe that Electric Light Vehicles can be the answer to many necessities of our everyday life.

The EL-Vs attractiveness is due to their low initial outlay, their budget-friendly operational and their low maintenance costs. These characteristics make them accessible to a large part of the global population. Moreover, nowadays many EU countries (including Italy!) are offering several incentives to encourage the population to rely on EL-Vs, trying to reduce the use of public transport without increasing the use of traditional vehicles with traditional fuels.

European Mobility Week presents a fact sheet with lessons learnt

EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has launched a new fact sheet presenting towns and cities with 10 lessons learnt from the COVID-19 lockdown regarding better urban mobility. The learnt lessons are based on different experiences.

Some of the lessons learnt are:

– Public space is precious and thus cities should be built for people and not for cars.

– The impact of working from home and buying goods online has on our environment and mobility patterns.

– Reducing speed limits to 30Km/h in urban areas.

– Air and noise pollution rates from daily transport fell to unprecedented levels.

The fact sheet also provided cites and towns with creative suggestions for activities, which they could organise during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2020.

Some of the suggestions are are:

– Walking and cycling.

– Offer guided tours to explain the new safety rules and showcase locations where space has been reallocated from (parked) cars to people.

– Organise inter-city conferences, like in Balkan cities last year.

– Info stand to show graphics or analysis of traffic flow during the worst weeks of COVID-19.

To read the full list of lessons learnt and suggestions, click here.

EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK also released a Communication Toolkit and is now available to download here. Cities and towns are encouraged to use the visual graphics to ensure the promotional campaigns carry the official EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK design. The updated toolkit contains logos and graphics – which also include the campaign mascot wearing a face mask. The templates and guidelines can be used for free of charge in the promotion of EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK.

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 Interview Series – Comune di Genova

This is a new interview, as part of ELVITEN interview series, presenting the Comune di Genova – Municipality of Genova, their role in the project, as well as their view on ELVs and urban mobility.

Enjoy the reading!

A short introduction of your organisation

The Municipality of Genoa (Comune di Genova) is a public administration organised into seven organisational units: General Management, Operational General Management, Areas, Mayor’s organisational units, The General Secretariat Office, Directions, City Halls.

Municipality of Genoa’s focuses are sustainable development, employment, security, tourism, green and blue economy, youth policies and technological development. Genoa also promotes models of sharing economy for all its citizens through e- Government.

What is your task and responsibility in the ELVITEN project?

Genoa is one of ELVITEN demonstration cities, and the Municipality of Genoa has participated in the project to build a demonstrations methodology.

The CdG has participated in the implementation of WP2 “Methodology and preparatory works for the demonstrations”, WP4 “Demonstrations” and WP5 “EL-Vs real usage and acceptance”, and it is the leader of Task 7.2 Stakeholders per business opportunity, and Task 7.5 Suggestions for potential legislative improvement within WP7 “Dynamic business modelling and guidelines for EL-Vs wide uptake”, as well as it leads the Task 8.4 Stakeholder Forum and Liaison activities within WP8 “Communication, Dissemination and Liaison”.

What was your interest in joining the ELVITEN project?

Enable EL-V owners to improve and maximize the use of their vehicles by providing them with more and better organized charge points, via integrated e-charging Hubs and dedicated parking lots in the city centre.

Involve privately owned charge points, to create a charge network all over the city, with attention on the main urban attractor nodes (i.e. railway stations, shopping centres, business district) and on major companies.

Stimulate the use of EL-Vs between ‘last mile’ delivery carriers.

Set up instruments capable to affect and stimulate virtuous behaviour through incentive mechanisms for EL-Vs owners or sharers. Part of the activities in ELVITEN will connect behaviour with incentive mechanism related to green sustainable mobility, interfaced with the wider smart card system of the Municipality.

Greater awareness among private and professional users about the potential of EL-Vs due to daily experience with them.

Overcoming the psychological barriers to adopt EL-Vs by different clusters of users.

Less pollution, traffic, and noise in the city.

What is your opinion on Electric-Light Vehicles?

In recent years, E-Light Vehicles had a strong increase both thanks to new technological development, the availability of a wide range of vehicles on the market and new measures and incentives for e-mobility introduced by public administrations, as well as an evolving regulatory framework. The use of EL-Vs vehicles is useful to contain urban pollution especially on urban scale, to implement new strategies for sustainability and, at the same time, it allows an effective mobility of people in urban areas. The increase of EL-Vs vehicles is also significant for delivery of goods (last mile deliveries) especially in cities like Genoa, with a territory characterized by a large historical centre and narrow streets difficult to reach and with limitations to traditionally powered vehicles and the spread of these vehicles is also booming thanks to sharing mobility.

The recent health emergency situation due to COVID-19 resulted also a change in mobility demand and the consequent need to find sustainable alternatives to the use of public transport and for the delivery of goods, has further increased the need of the diffusion of Electric-Light Vehicles. In line with the provisions of Genova Urban Mobility Plan, however, an intervention on the territory is indispensable for the creation of a network of dedicated charging stations and the definition of a measures to encourage use and incentives to purchase and rewards related to the use. The cost of Electric-Light Vehicles is still quite high, but the availability of incentives and an adequate presence of e-changing stations at urban level will facilitate their expansion.

Could you explain the impact of EL-Vs on urban mobility?

Liguria Region approved a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a charging network for electric mobility in Genoa. In this way, Genoa Municipality improves electric mobility through actions aimed to create infrastructures on urban territory to increase use of e-vehicles. The actions provide useful resources for the improvement of the policy instrument, favouring the transition to the use of non-polluting way of transport for climate protection and the prevention of risks related to climate change.

The actions could be implemented with public and private operators interested to the development and realization of further new e-charging stations in the city, to promote a sustainable urban electric mobility to aim to guarantee a large free use in public spaces aimed to develop a capillary e-charging network on the territory.

In Genoa and in other cities of the Liguria Region, due to the complex orography of the territory, motorcycles and scooters are very used and to favour the use of electric light vehicles could be launched incentive campaigns for the purchase of this type of electric vehicles through specific bonus available for those who scrap polluting vehicles and buy a new electric vehicle (electric bikes, motorcycles and scooters). Moreover, a good communication and dissemination of the actions are very important to the diffusion of e-vehicles.

What do you think about the future market for urban mobility?

In 2016, over 750,000 “electrified” cars were sold worldwide: BEV (pure electric), HEV (hybrid) or PHEV (plug-in hybrid). China is the largest market for electric vehicles, about 40% of world demand (about 340 thousand), double the sales of the USA (160 thousand). In the first 6 months of 2017, sales of BEV, PHEV and FC cars in China, USA, EU and Japan reached 425 thousand (Source: ANFIA). The Italian car park is approximately 37 million cars. If, only hypothetically, all the cars sold from 2018 onwards were “electrified” (BEV, PHEV, FCEV) it would take more than thirteen years to “electrify” the entire car fleet.

In 2030, about 20% of the world circulating fleet could be made up of BEV (battery electric vehicles) with significant differences between countries depending on the policies undertaken (Source: International Energy Agency 2017). As an indication between 2025 and 2030, the break-even between the prices of electric vehicles (BEV) and those with internal combustion power trains could be reached.

The date will mainly depend on:

  • the technological evolution of accumulators
  • the growing demand for batteries
  • by the methods of their reuse and / or disposal
  • from access to raw materials to make them

As experiences in other countries (Denmark, Norway) demonstrate, the spread of “electric only” vehicles is strongly linked to the availability of economic incentives. Fundamental is a widespread diffusion of the charging network (columns). Dynamic inductive charging is being tested and it is not possible today to understand what its future evolution will be.

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.

What is your responsibility in the ELVITEN project?

Our responsibilities in ELVITEN were mainly focused on ensure a correct preparation of demonstration sites and validate readiness of ICT tools and services deployed at their locations.

What is your interest in joining the ELVITEN project?

Mobility for short distances in cities has been evolving in recent years towards the ever-increasing use of personal light vehicles – with or without the support of electric motors (bicycles, moppets, motorcycles, skates, etc.) – opening up the doors to new forms of business focused on solving these short-distance mobility needs. Therefore, ATOS interest in joining ELVITEN can be summarized as our expectation to improve the booking/brokering services that enable citizens to plan and to use light electrical vehicles during their daily mobility requirements.

What is your opinion on Electric-Light Vehicles?

EL-Vs will be used mainly in populated areas as support to public transportation and logistics services (last mile mobility and distribution services).

Could you explain the impact of EL-Vs on urban mobility?

The EL-Vs allow solving the mobility and distribution needs of goods and services in cities, without having the negative impacts of the emission of harmful substances resulting from combustion. This single factor is already enough to reinforce the use of EL-Vs, but there are also other aspects to take into account, such as lower amounts required for investments, less parking space, charging facilities aligned with the evolution of the services of electrical energy, ease of integration with other community services, etc. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic is reinforcing this evolution by reducing the time periods available for the development of innovative proposals in personal mobility.

What do you think about the future market for urban mobility?

The future of the urban mobility market will continue to grow, offering new products and services to solve the needs of the displacement of citizens and the distribution of products from local warehouses as consequence of:

– New business models will be developed to meet these needs by offering mobility opportunities that do not require large investments and solve immediate mobility needs.

– Services of neighbouring communities will allow offer services of parking and recharging to its members.

– Public transport will develop new routes and services that allow them to be integrated with local mobility capabilities.
