Fourth ELVITEN General Assembly in Trikala

The fourth General Assembly of the ELVITEN EU research project took place on 21- 22 in Trikala, one of the six ELVITEN cities that will start testing Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) soon.

Citizens of Rome, Bari, Malaga, Berlin, Genoa, and Trikala will start seeing the ELVITEN two, three- and four-wheeler EL-Vs. In total, the project will deploy more than 200 vehicles, provided by the Swiss company Kyburz, one of the project partners and by RAD Power Bikes. The objective of these demonstrations is to evaluate the usefulness of this specific type of vehicles in the six cities, make 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 the cities will be accompanied by an awareness campaign. The campaign will invite citizens to share the #LetsGoElectric over social media and their opinions over electromobility, every time that they see one of the electric vehicles.

With the objective of encouraging citizens to contribute to making the six cities more sustainable and greener, the ELVITEN partners in the cities have put in place a number of incentives for those achieving the highest record 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, free entrance to an amusements park, free swimming pool subscription and much more.

The two days meeting that gathered 21 partners from 11 countries in Europe was a perfect occasion to discuss all these matters and also to launch the demonstrations of L-category electric vehicles in the hosting city Trikala. Partners had the chance to test them right before the vehicles will be offered to the public as a sharing service.

 

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.
