ELCIDIS officially runs from March 1st 1998 to August
The phasing of the project is organised as follows:
Initial study: Logistic system design and vehicle
Operational phase: the vehicles will be demonstrated
on-site for 30 months. The successful city projects will be prolonged
Evaluation: the projects on each site will be
evaluated using a common procedure in order to collect data which can
be easily compared and extrapolated to other cities.
This includes data collection systems to be installed on vehicles, measuring
logistic data and energy consumption, as to assess energy consumption
and environmental benefits of vehicles.
ECN, the Netherlands Energy Research Foundation, will be involved in
the joint evaluation and the monitoring of ELCIDIS, in close co-operation
Dissemination: newsletters, website, workshops.
