The ERICA project aims to develop an electric vehicle sharing service. The successful operation of an Electric Car sharing system requires addressing specific challenges in their design and management. The implementation of the Electric Car-sharing system and the deployment of the service is initially carried out in Greece, starting from the city of Corfu.
The island of Corfu is an area that welcomes thousands of visitors every year. Especially in the summer, the tourist traffic increases and the need to commute peaks. Thus, the City of Corfu seems to be the ideal choice for the implementation of the ERICA project service with the support and operation of the Electric Car-sharing system in three well-chosen locations in the city.
