The new mobility service will become operational in 2023.
Thanks to Noemix, Friuli Venezia Giulia is going to be the first region where a considerable share of company cars of municipalities, healthcare authorities, the regional administration and other public institutions will be phased out and replaced by electric vehicles. By aggregating the mobility needs of several public authorities, the current model based on car ownership will be phased out and replaced by a centralized electric mobility service managed by private operators.
The NOEMIX model offers a full package of services and includes: car-sharing, the rental of electric vehicles, management and optimization systems, charging stations and the production of electric power from renewable energy sources.
The project, which started in June 2017, will last for five years and aims at making Friuli Venezia Giulia a forerunner region at European level in the transition to a low-carbon economy. NOEMIX has a budget of 900.000 euro granted by the European Commission that by 2020 will mobilize around 21,5 million euro of investments to give life to the NOEMIX service.
According to the findings of a preliminary analysis carried out in 2016, public authorities in Friuli Venezia Giulia (the regional administration ‘Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia’, Health Authorities, County Seats, the Port Authority, universities and research centres) satisfy their mobility needs with at least 1500 cars travelling 50-100 km per day, mostly in urban areas.

NOEMIX aims at reducing CO2 emissions, increasing the production of energy from renewable energy sources, reducing pollution – as a result of the reduction of the emissions deriving from internal combustion engines – as well as cutting down particulate matter and noise generated by congestion in urban areas.
As shown in the chart, NOEMIX will introduce at least 522 electric vehicles in the fleet of regional public authorities, together with 200 charging stations and a photovoltaic plant that will satisfy the 100% of the electric energy needs. The expected primary energy savings amount to about 2,736 GWh, with a reduction of around 1000t of CO2 emissions. The model can be replicated in other regions in Italy and Europe.
