Project: ELVITEN


11/2017 - 10/2020
ELVITEN will holistically tackle all issues impeding the wide market deployment of EL-Vs, by proposing replicable usage schemes to boost ownership or sharing of all categories of EL-Vs by systematic and occasional urban travellers and by light delivery companies.
Existing charge points in the ELVITEN Demonstration Cities, including private ones, will be integrated into a Brokering and Booking service and EL-V charging possibilities will be integrated into the biggest eRoaming platform in the market, to enable EL-V users to charge independently from charge point operators. Sharing services will be set up and supporting policies and incentives will be put in place. ICT tools will be deployed, including a Brokering and a Booking service for EL-Vs and charge points, an EL-V fleet monitoring tool and Eco-Drive app, a Serious Game and an Incentive Management Smart Card.
One-year-long demonstrations with 383 equipped EL-Vs of all categories in Genoa, Rome, Bari, Malaga, Berlin and Trikala, will allow the collection of a big data bank of trip data and users' experiences and opinions after the trips.
The analysis will shed light on the real driving and charging patterns of EL-Vs, on reported problems encountered and on the users’ opinions and perceptions. A Cost-Benefit Analysis will evaluate the potential market uptake of EL-Vs. Sustainable business models will be proposed for sharing, rental, parking or charge services for EL-Vs and for the deployed ICT tools. Guidelines to EL-V manufacturers and to Planning Authorities will be prepared and agreements will be signed with another 50 Follower Cities so that they transfer to their own regions the ELVITEN usage schemes.
ICOOR will analyse mobility demand for Bari and will support the definition of the usage schemes. ICOOR will be WP2 leader, focusing on the baseline analysis, supporting the preparation of the Bari demonstration from the technical point of view and helping the Bari awareness campaigns. Moreover, ICOOR will support the Bari demonstration on technical issues and as regards data collection and users’ engagement.
