Abstract

This paper aims at describing the activities and projects carried out at the Savona Campus of the University of Genoa to transform the Campus into an 'open-Air' laboratory, called 'Living Lab Smart City', in which experimenting the most innovative and sustainable technologies for the production, distribution and management of energy in the cities of the future (Smart City). In this context, two important Research Infrastructures (RI) were built: The first is an intelligent energy microgrid, the 'Smart Polygeneration Microgrid' (SPM) capable of producing and distributing electrical and thermal energy within the Savona Campus; the second is a fully automated building, the 'Smart Energy Building' (SEB), with zero CO2 emissions. These RIs have allowed the Savona Campus to become part of two important global networks of Sustainable Campus Networks (International Sustainable Campus Network-ISCN and UI Greenmetric), Other activities have been developed to improve environmental sustainability and the wellbeing of Campus visitors.
