Innovative Configurations for Electric Vehicle Sharing Services

The paper presents the preliminary findings of Green Move, an ongoing project financed by Regione Lombardia that involves eight different research centers of Politecnico di Milano. Green Move has the objective to design and test an electric vehicle-sharing system for the city of Milano. Two main features characterize the project. First, the multiplicity of actors involved: single users, private companies, and associations may use vehicles provided by the service or share their personal car or fleet (peer-to-peer approach). Second, the service design is specifically aimed to balance different dimensions of sustainability (i.e. environment, finance, mobility, social), in order to overcome the shortcomings of the present services. Based on a literature review, a survey of the current practices, and applying design thinking methods, four specific service configurations have been identified, characterized by the aim of offering a service that is more tailored on users’ needs
