Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
The 'Smart Polygeneration Microgrid' (SPM) is a LV demonstrator infrastructure hosted at Savona Campus facilities, within the big project 'Energia 2010' lead by the University of Genova.It consist of renewable and innovative generation/cogeneration units (micro turbine fed with natural gas/syngas, photovoltaic plant, solar concentration thermodynamic plant with Stirling motor, energy storage, EV charging stations), a dedicated electric network, to be integrated with the existing grid of the University Campus and special connections and systems to store and vectorise the heat produced by the cogeneration units.The entire system is supervised by a control room to which signals are sent from sensors, actuators, data loggers and, in general, from all the smart distributed systems in the field.
