LONG LIFE TO MICROMOBILITY

Projects

LIFE2M

Electric cars have received praise for their role in reducing fossil fuel consumption and urban pollution. However, they do not necessarily alleviate traffic congestion and parking difficulties. Challenges related to recycling vehicles and batteries persist.

LIFE2M aims to establish micromobility as the leading sustainable mobility solution for urban and peri-urban areas.

The logic of the project is to achieve the double objective of making micromobility more sustainable, eliminating the need to recycle lithium batteries and extend the life of microvehicles, and incentivising micromobility, making it more economically advantageous, both for private individuals and for operators of sharing services.

Our Main Goals

The goal is to overcome current barriers to adoption, making it economically viable for both private users and sharing services operators.

Developing innovative accumulators based on hybrid supercapacitor (SC) technology.

Establishing photovoltaic 
fast-charging stations.

Creating micromobility vehicles using recyclable materials.

Raising awareness through communication campaigns.

Despite only 3% of respondents in Italy purchasing e-bikes, around 30% expressed interest in doing so. Challenges for
e-bikes include short battery lifespan, high replacement costs, and negative perceptions of sharing services.
Road safety issues and inadequate infrastructure also hinder e-bike adoption.

To promote micromobility and reduce environmental impact, the LIFE2M project has been launched. The project aims to retrofit/introduce around 260 micro-vehicles, create three photovoltaic fast-charging stations, and develop a data collection platform and app. The project will also define guidelines for safe micromobility circulation and expand the system to additional cities, targeting 9,600 micro-vehicles within five years after project completion.
