On 23 January 2020, the Municipality of Genoa and Duferco Energia invited users, local authorities, the project’s partners and other project stakeholders to celebrate the ELVITEN Project Go Live in Genoa and to demonstrate the functionalities of the charging areas.
The event took place in one of the 4 ELVITEN areas close to the Piazza Principe train station in Genoa. Participants in the event could try electric vehicles and ELVITEN services to charge their electric bikes, motorbikes and quadricycles. All charging points can be reached free of charge until the end of the projected (October 2020) by simply registering with DEN ELVITEN services with the Duferco Energia mobile D-Mobility app.
A new equipment of 60 charging points for light electric vehicles, added to the 80 positions which were already present, places Genoa at the forefront in trialing light electric mobility. The equipment includes:
