An exergy analysis for Milan smart city

06/04/2017

The open access scientific journal Energy Procedia has published a study on the 'energy smartness' of Milan, conducted jointly by Politecnico di Milano, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and Trondheim's Department of Civil and Transport Engineering.


'Exergy' - an indicator of energy quality - "provides a quantitative basis to measure the degradation of energy (i.e. the decrease of its capacity to generate useful work) in conversion processes", the authors explain.
The paper proposes an analysis method, based on exergy, to support smart city planning, with the aim to provide the decision maker with a useful tool to compare and understand the energy-smartness of different scenarios, and to address future energy urban policies.

The paper is available at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1876610217302825
