ELVITEN is continuously looking for Regional Support Group members

The ELVITEN project is looking for local stakeholders in ELVITEN demonstrations cities: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala to join the Regional Support Groups (RSG) in order to create and build a strong network of interested experts. The RSG’s have been continuously involved in all project activities and have confirmed and validated some of ELVITEN actions. Regional Support Group members also play a crucial role in project dissemination by promoting the ELVITEN activities on their events and channels and by supporting the activities performed by ELVITEN consortium partners.

Stakeholders can include electric vehicle manufactures, local administration and public authorities, local bodies, research & academic institutions, planning authorities, fleet operators, media, service providers and other organisations involved or interested in supporting electromobility.

Who can apply?

Stakeholders outside the ELVITEN consortium partners which are based in one of the six ELVITEN cities (Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Trikala and Rome).

Help us with collecting opinions on the EL-V experience

The ELVITEN project is conducting an online survey (anonymously) on the real experience of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-V) users and non EL-V users. The survey consists of four sets of questionnaires about people’s real experience with EL-Vs covering two-wheeler, three-wheeler, four-wheeler and non EL-V users. The ELVITEN survey also has a few questions about charging points.

Under Work Package 5, as part of a task led by the University of Leeds, ELVITEN partners are collecting responses on real EL-V driver conditions, including interactions with other traffic participants. Based on the questionnaires’ responses, the user’s experiences will be analysed in detail, especially as regards:

  • any situations occurred and resulted from interactions among EL-V users with other traffic participants (e.g. vulnerable road users, heavy vehicles, level of interactions, involved participants, user’s reaction);
  • any matters regarded interactions between EL-V users and road infrastructures, environment conditions (e.g. road signs, road markings, visibility conditions);
  • the satisfactory level of availability of private and public charge points and technologies;
  • any technical problems encountered as regards EL-V;
  • the level of comfort of EL-V users and any matters experienced with the control of an vehicle.

The ELVITEN survey findings will be documented per category of EL-V as well as per user age, gender and a cluster.

The survey is available in five languages: English, German, Greek, Italian and Spanish.

The deadline for submission is 23 March 2020 and should not take more than 10-15 minutes to complete.

Your contribution to the survey is valuable for implementation of ELVITEN project.
