With an estimated population of 570,006 inhabitants in 2017, it is the second-most populous city of Andalusia and the sixth largest in Spain. The city extends mainly over a flat land. Málaga has a subtropical-Mediterranean climate and experiences the warmest winters of any European city.

The total vehicle fleet in Málaga consists of 347,347 vehicles, of which 67.42% concerns cars (mainly unleaded petrol and diesel). Green fleets in 2017 include 1,286 hybrid and 86 electric vehicles.

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.

Recommendations for Service Providers after COVID-19

In spring 2019, after 18 months of preparatory activities, the ELVITEN partners started to deploy the demonstration phase in six European cities: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome, and Trikala. The goal was to collect data from the pilot sites to demonstrate how Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) can be used in urban areas.

After few months of demonstrations, the pilot activities became a privileged observatory to understand the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the users’ behaviour and the new mobility needs of European citizens. The collected data in the ELVITEN demonstration cities enabled to obtain useful indications on how the EL-Vs services helped users’ needs during the COVID-19 crisis.

ELVITEN partners prepared a report “Recommendations for Service Providers emerged after COVID-19” to offer some recommendations to light electric mobility service providers. The recommendations are framed based on the results and experience acquired within the ELVITEN project and are integrated with the evidence, trends, and market drivers observed during the pandemic.

Some of the recommendations to service providers are:

– Safety and hygiene: Service providers who can manage to convince users that their vehicles are the safest will have a significant advantage over those who may not have the resources to do so.

– Strategy: Most of the revenue was previously generated locally in many cities, primarily due to the tourists. But due to the current health crisis, travelling is very much restricted and service providers must look for new strategies. Shifting from short-term offers to monthly subscriptions to maintain a low cost per trip for all new regular users can bring in new revenues and help the service providers.

– Integration: Technological innovations such as platforms for the integration of mobility services, and market innovations such as sharing services (cars, bikes, and scooters) can and should contribute to the development of sustainable mobility provision for all citizens.

“Mobility needs to reinvent itself in some way to adapt to the upcoming challenges arising from COVID-19. Operators, software developers, vehicle manufacturers, public services and public
authorities will all have to be creative to find ways to address a wide range of social, technical, and commercial problems created or exacerbated by the pandemic. “
