ELVITEN al FIA Smart Cities Forum ospitato a Roma

Il 12 aprile 2019, Roma ha ospitato la terza edizione del FIA Smart Cities Forum, una serie di conferenze ad alto livello per discutere di come attori privati ​​e pubblici possano guidare i nuovi cambiamenti nel campo della mobilità.

In onore della prima gara di Formula E a Roma, personaggi di spicco in materia di sviluppo e sostenibilità si sono riuniti per condividere le loro opinioni sul futuro della mobilità urbana nelle città in rapida crescita. Tra gli argomenti discussi in merito alle sfide attuali che le città devono affrontare nel campo della mobilità urbana vi sono il traffico, l’inquinamento, la mancanza di mobilità e le scarse misure di sicurezza.

Il tema dell’evento è stato “Innovazione nella città eterna” e si è svolto presso il padiglione E-Motion, circuito di Formula E.  Il Forum ha visto la partecipazione di diverse personalità tra cui il Principe Alberto II di Monaco, il Presidente della FIA Jean Todt, il CEO di Formula E Holdings Alejandro Agag, il Sindaco di Roma Virginia Raggi, il Presidente dell’Automobile Club d’Italia (ACI) Angelo Sticchi Damiani.

Il progetto ELVITEN è stato presentato dal Sindaco di Roma, Virginia Raggi insieme a Linda Meleo, Assessore alle politiche dei trasporti, Dario D’Innocenti, Presidente del IX Municipio, e Alessandro Drago, Assessore comunale alla mobilità. Roma, come città pilota del progetto europeo ELVITEN, sperimenterà la condivisione di e-bike per promuovere la mobilità integrata e sostenibile. Saranno disponibili 78 biciclette elettriche, prenotabili attraverso l’App dedicata. 8 e-Hub verranno posti nel Municipio Roma IX, ovvero stazioni di ricarica che consentiranno anche il parcheggio della bicicletta. Altri stand saranno situati vicino alle stazioni della metropolitana Eur Laurentina e Eur Magliana, insieme ad altre aree strategiche del Municipio Roma IX (come Via di Acqua Acetosa Ostiene, Guiseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa o Adrea Meldola, Fonte Meravigliosa). Le biciclette saranno disponibili per più di un anno, fornendo un veicolo ecologico e funzionale per i viaggi rapidi.

ELVITEN: ready to transform the mobility in Trikala

The ELVITEN project will soon start the demonstration of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-Vs) in the city of Trikala. From the end of this month, citizens of Greece’s first smart city will start seeing around the ELVITEN three-wheelers and four-wheelers EL-Vs.

In total, the city of Trikala is deploying 10 tricycles and 10 quadricycles which has been provided by the Swiss company Kyburz, one of the 21 project partners. The objective of these demonstrations is to evaluate the usefulness of this specific type of vehicles in Trikala, make Trikala’s 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 Trikala, one of the six ELVITEN locations, will be accompanied by an awareness campaign in which all citizens are welcome to participate by sharing the #LetsGoElectric over the social media everytime they see one of the electric vehicles and share their opinions over electromobility.

With the objective of encouraging citizens to contribute to make Trikala a more sustainable and greener city, the ELVITEN partners in the city has put in place a number of incentives for those achieving the highest record toward 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, Mill of Elves Magic Park Free cards and Mill Of Elves gift Packages, free swimming pool subscription and much more.

Stay tuned for what is coming next!
