I-SharE LIFE project is positioned within the thematic priority for Air Quality and Emissions including the Urban Environment of LIFE Sub-programme for Environment and Resource Efficiency.
The main environmental target of I-SharE LIFE is the reduction of pollutants and atmospheric loads, in particular PM10 and NO2; this aim is also multiplied by a more climate-related aim, i.e. the mitigation in the emission of greenhouse gases from road transport and urban mobility.
As far as the demonstration actions are concerned, a total of 50 electric cars are to be used in the demonstration actions in the four cities in Lombardy, Italy (Busto Arsizio, Bollate, Bergamo, and Como), and further 8 e-cars will be used in demonstrations sites in the City of Osijek, Croatia.
With respect to the service models foreseen in the single demonstration actions, the general aim of I-SharE LIFE is to reduce the number of conventional internal combustion vehicles circulating in the participating cities, thus reducing the atmospheric load of pollutants in the aforementioned urban areas, as well as to demonstrate the technological and economic feasibility of a transition to electric car sharing in small to mid-sized urban areas in Italy and Croatia. Dyvolve Ltd. is a project partner, responsible for supporting implementation of pilot activities in the City of Osijek focusing on electric car sharing business models development, IT systems alignment between service providers and public transport operator, and related future service’s target group offer modelling. Dyvolve Ltd. is also responsible for the overall leadership of ACTION B.6: Sustainability and project continuation.
The focus on small to mid-sized urban areas also allows for innovative replicability and transferability opportunities in other small to mid-sized urban areas.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s LIFE programme under Grant agreement No. LIFE/17/IT/000212.
