La città di Bari ha un clima mediterraneo con inverni miti ed estati calde e secche e dal punto di vista geomorfologico il suo territorio è quasi completamente pianeggiante.
Caratteristiche del trasporto
L’analisi del Piano regionale dei trasporti per il 2015-2019 della Regione Puglia e del “Piano Urbano della Mobilità Sostenibile” mostrano che la principale modalità di trasporto per i viaggi utilizzati dai cittadini è l’auto o il furgone (52%), seguito dalla motocicletta (22 %), dai mezzi pubblici (18%) e infine dalla bicicletta (5%). A Bari ci sono oltre 65.000 auto, seguite da motociclette (<10.000), camion e altri veicoli.

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.

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.
