MALAGA CITY COUNCIL
Malaga pilot will strengthen the e-mobility aspects in the smart city context and the city SUMP, with special focus on “e-urban collaborative logistics” (last mile distribution with the suitable shared EV powered by RES). It includes: the allocation and smart management of last mile distribution points and a new UDC by interoperable charging points, routing services and a charging platform available to logistic companies and citizens; new demand management scheme through variable energy price, and recommendations for regulations in ultra-low emission areas (access restrictions to non-EVs, regulation loading/ unloading schedules for energy efficiency). Moreover, Malaga is one of the pilot in where the MEISTER solutions will be tested and the city council acts as the Malaga pilot leadership.
Novadays will introduce the public sector perspective, views and demands in MEISTER, working together with the Goverments of the three pilot cities in implementing a global benchmark methodology (Business Cases based in the Five Case Methodology originally designed by the National Treasury of UK) through 11 cases to test the 6 business models that will be explore in the project. Novadays will also create a body of knowledge for public managers and Governments with methodological guides to analyze the feasibility of each Business Model in their cities and to document them through the business case methodology or cost-benefit analysis. More than 35 documents exploring and showing the results of the pilots –including the three versions of each business case- will be part of that body of knowledge, contributing to knowledge transfer from the leading local governments to others. These documents will also include tender documentation templates and guides, and model contracts to develope EV through PPPs models. Furthermore, Novadays is the WP2 leader.
