The aim of this paper is to describe the system composed by the SPM (Smart Polygeneration Microgrid) feeding the SEB (Sustainable Energy Building) at the University of Genoa (Savona Campus), and to assess the Campus operating costs, CO2 emissions, and primary energy annual savings determined by the combined SPM-SEB system. This work highlights the main difference between two scenarios (AS-IS and TO-BE) with specific reference to operation and management of various power units. As demonstrated by the work, besides research and testing of new devices, the SPM-SEB can be used also for demonstration and teaching activities, and contributes to increase the overall energy efficiency of the Campus, lowering its primary energy consumption.

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to describe the system composed by the SPM (Smart Polygeneration Microgrid) feeding the SEB (Sustainable Energy Building) at the University of Genoa (Savona Campus), and to assess the Campus operating costs, CO2 emissions, and primary energy annual savings determined by the combined SPM-SEB system. This work highlights the main difference between two scenarios (AS-IS and TO-BE) with specific reference to operation and management of various power units. As demonstrated by the work, besides research and testing of new devices, the SPM-SEB can be used also for demonstration and teaching activities, and contributes to increase the overall energy efficiency of the Campus, lowering its primary energy consumption.
