Project

EVOMOBILE is the University of Valencia electromobility living-lab.

This initiative consists of a set of actions to create sustainable forms of travelling between the UV campuses.
It aims to reduce the use of internal combustion vehicles regularly transporting between the different sites of the University (both people and goods), and to explore possible alternative models of sustainable electric mobility for the community users of the UV.

The project includes the establishment of a recharge network for electric vehicles distributed around the three campuses (Blasco Ibañez, Tarongers and Burjassot-Paterna).

The project involves the testing of electric vehicles by the university population in its different modalities (car, motorcycle and bicycle) to:

• Assess the feasibility of this mode of transport.
• Serve as a proof of concept of electric vehicles and the different technology associated to the charging points.
• Evaluate the social impact of this sustainable way of transport.
• Serve as a previous pilot experience for later be used in larger user communities.

 

Scope

 

In a first step, the project is focused on the collective staff linked directly to the University of Valencia, who represent:

EVOMOBILE users

People

Students

62.000

Staff (researchers and administration)

5.500

Staff (subcontracted providers)

500

Staff of UV entities (e.g. foundations)

400

Tenants

350

TOTAL

68.750



The scope of the project is limited to the community users of the University of Valencia and covers mobility between the faculties of Valencia, Paterna and Burjasot (a radius of 25 km). The main mobility problems identified within the UV are mainly based on the dispersion of the university community over four different campuses (Blasco Ibañez, Tarongers, Burjassot and Paterna).

 

Expected results

 
The expected results of EVOMOVILE are:

a) The promotion of a transport system which is free of pollution and based on electric vehicles at the University of València.
b) The creation of a basic infrastructure that may be used regularly to supply energy to electric vehicles used in academia.
c) Promoting the use of electric vehicles in public transport.
d) An awareness campaign which has been brought about by distributing Disseminate the results of experience in order to be evaluated for implementation in other contexts.
e) Gradual replacement towards more sustainable ways of transport
