In the framework of the 2020 European strategy, that aims the EU to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy, several innovative and cost-effective research and development projects are centered on the smart microgrid and sustainable energy concepts. Moreover, the need to develop energy management systems, that permit to operate energy infrastructures in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner, becomes a fundamental prerogative. To this aim, in the present paper a mathematical model is proposed for the optimal daily operation of a sustainable energy infrastructure consisting in a smart electrical and thermal microgrid feeding a smart university campus, such as that located in the city of Savona in Italy; in the paper the main equations of the multi-objective optimization model are reported, as well as some significant results.
