Cities are rapidly getting on top of the agendas of various initiatives worldwide aimed at decreasing the cost and carbon footprint of energy products, services and activities. In fact, as it is expected that by 2050 about 70% of the world population will live in cities, it is crucial to identify strategic plans to make cities more energy efficient and environmentally friendly in a cost  effective manner. At the same time, the advent of the Smart Grid associated  to the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in conjunction to networks and services is changing the perspectives of the way we operate power and energy systems. In this context, the concept of a Smart City is emerging whereby the urban Smart Grid can be optimally designed and controlled so as to facilitate a cost-effective development of a sustainable urban energy system.

 This course will present and discuss an overview of key issues within the Smart Cities context with manifold topics, from urban energy planning to ICT requirements. Technical, environmental, economic, reliability and policy aspects of the relevant topics will be discussed in detail. The emerging of new information and communications technologies (ICT) and the city have coalesced in the notion of the ‘smart city’ where the focus is on how cities are becoming ‘more intelligent’ in delivering various services which enable populations to improve their ways of life, their economic productivity and their social interactions.
