    Smart Grids for Smart Cities

    Smart Grids are nowadays considered as one of the major enablers for the implementation of the Smart City paradigm. This webinar is aimed at providing evidence of the above concept. After a brief introductory part in which the definitions of Smart Grid and of Smart City will be critically reviewed, particular attention will be given to the recent developments of Local Energy Communities and to the technical challenges posed by the management of Micro Grids in islanding transitions. Indeed, Smart districts, smart buildings/homes, and micro-grids (MGs) have still unexploited potential in terms of achieving an overall more flexible energy demand, which represents an opportunity in the sector of energy.
