The local Government of Valladolid has approved economic incentives to boost electric mobility in the city.
Taxi drivers, “last mile” delivery and commercial fleets are the sectors chosen to demonstrate the sustainability of electric mobility in Valladolid as a lighthouse city of clean transport in the European project REMOURBAN.
8,350 euros have been allocated for providing data about the electric vehicles. 1,500 euros will be the remuneration for reporting and monitoring the recharging points of hotels, malls and gas stations.
The agreement is an innovative and participating process through which the City Council engages this data services. The Valladolid Council, together with GMV, CARTIF and XERIDIA will be responsible of the interpretation and feedback from the sectors involved in this DEMO.
Valladolid, a sustainable mobility for a smart city
With the Framework Agreement and a budget of 405,750 euros, 45 new electric vehicles (mostly delivery fleets and e-vehicles of private companies) will be on the streets of the city. In addition, 20 new charging stations will be installed at strategic locations in the city such as CENTROLID (the most important logistic center of the region).
Recharging points and infrastructure in Valladolid
In Valladolid there are currently 72 vehicle recharging points, 34 of which are for public access and use. Before the end of 2020, these facilities will rise to 63 besides the private points. Also, thanks to the REMOURBAN project and the help of IBERDROLA as a partner of this consortium, a fast recharge point has been installed at CENTROLID. The recharging network of Valladolid counts with 50 kW power for this facility and 4 more for semi-rapid recharging points for taxi stops around the city.
Contribution of aggregated and anonymous data
One goal of this DEMO is to monitor the ups and battery status of the e-vehicle, how energy is delivered and how it is recovered. The electric vehicles will be geo-located to provide users with real-time information on the location of public charging points, their availability, their capacity or the status of their services.
These tracking and monitoring actions will help to generate a comprehensive set of data to develop a model that reflects the traffic density, the use of electric vehicles in urban areas, energy demand of the public recharge points or other environmental pollution aspects in the center.
All the information provided by the DEMO will deepen the knowledge of how electric mobility works in the city. The data will show how to establish patterns or city models in terms of traffic configuration, regulation of the entrance of vehicles to the city, parking, incentives or municipal taxes on vehicles.
