One of the main research innovations in Savona Campus is represented by the research activities in the sustainable energy sector, in particular those of the “Energia 2020” project on sustainable energy and smart cities. Within this project, two important test-bed facilities have been realized in Savona Campus: the Smart Polygeneration Microgrid (SPM) and the Smart Energy Building (SEB).

The SPM, funded by the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research, is a 3-phase low voltage intelligent distribution system, coupled with a thermal network and composed of electrical/thermal loads and generation units. The power plants of the SPM are real-time monitored and operated by an Energy Management System (EMS) that aims at minimizing daily operating costs and emissions. The SEB, funded by the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea, is a sustainable building connected with the SPM as a prosumer. The SEB is equipped with a photovoltaic field, a geothermal heat pump, thermal solar collectors and an air handling unit. The SEB is operated by a Building Management System (BMS) that communicates with the EMS of the SPM.

The Symposium participants can visit the SPM and SEB infrastructures. The meeting for the visit to the Smart Polygeneration Microgrid is in LA 117 room, at 12:10.
