FNM E-VAI 3.0 project is a LIFE Close-to-market proposal, delivering improved environmental solutions, capable of being widely taken up by the society and economy in particular. FNM SpA (Lombardy, Italy) is looking for a partner to join. The proposal will be submitted for LIFE Environment & Resource Efficiency.
What is this project about?
The project aims at E-car sharing innovative solutions for medium and small urban areas and outside the metropolitan areas where car-sharing has proven to be successful, integrating it in a railway station. Electric car sharing services will be innovated in railway stations of the Lombardy Region, run by E-Vai public company.
The E-Vai model which tends to maximise its use during the day by integration of other mobility services already existing in the hub.
The following activities will be undertaken:
- Innovative service model co-design with business and private involvement (i.e. use of latest generation electric vehicles sharing in charging points with other modalities, pooling)
- Creation of a technology platform and an app for businesses and individuals for e-car booking, crew creation (car-pooling), service promotion, users community creation, rewarding system
- Implementation of the service at the pilot sites (purchase of vehicles, charging points, photovoltaic panels, bike parks).
Why is it interesting to join?
This model ensures sustainable mobility helping your region to use all your capacities to the fullest in transportation resulting in zero polluting emissions, and therefore, to improve the level of pollution.
What partner they are looking for?
They are waiting for a region, especially from France or Germany. This partner will demonstrate that E-VAI 3.0 business model can be adapted even if there is no car-sharing operation in place today. Partner regions will be pilot areas to certify the viability of the business model.
The deadline for environment & Resource Efficiency Call for Proposal is 12th September at 16:00 (Brussels time).
If you are ready to express your interest, please send an e-mail to the AER Secretariat by 10th of August.
