Aiming at exchanging knowledge and best practices and enlarging the project network in a local context, ELVITEN partners have been inviting stakeholders in the six ELVITEN cities to join the Regional Support Groups (RSGs). Recently, the project made public the list of companies, institutions, and bodies that will support the project in Málaga, one of the project pilot sites.
In total, 17 companies and institutions signed the RSG agreements in the Spanish city, among which are the Empresa Malagueña de Transporte (EMT) and relevant academic institutions such as the University of Málaga.
This constitutes a major step towards ELVITEN objective of encouraging the mobility users and fleet operators to include Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) in their daily use.

The tasks of the RSGs are manifold: on the one side, they will engage companies, associations, authorities and other actors outside the ELVITEN project consortium who will support the demonstrations.
Members may include electric vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators, charging point operators, road infrastructure operators, public authorities, electrical distribution system operators, service providers and other organisations and bodies involved or interested in electromobility. This also includes academics, research organisations and the media.
On the other hand, members of the Regional Support Groups will help to better understand and clarify the market needs and expectations. In addition, they will support disseminating the project’s achievements and ensure visibility in a local context.
Members of the RSG will benefit from visibility at the ELVITEN events and activities and as well as the promotion of their brands through the project channels, website, and social media. Furthermore, the members of the RSG will be informed about relevant project developments and achievements and they will be invited to meetings and workshops.
