In 2008, the European Commission published the climate and energy package '20 20 20' with the objective of reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increasing the production from renewable energy sources (RES) and the energy efficiency. Electric Vehicles (EVs) contribute to lower the GHG emissions as they produce no exhaust gas as opposed to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. The present study has been developed within a research project focused on the use of EVs in sustainable districts to analyze different scenarios applied to a University Campus in the North of Italy, where EVs are charged within a smart microgrid composed of RES power plants, high-efficiency cogeneration units and storage systems. The study aims at fostering the diffusion of the concept of smart mobility, that becomes particularly profitable in sustainable districts where the distributed generation concept is also applied. Furthermore, the proposed methodology can be easily implemented to analyze other similar test-cases, where sustainable districts are fed by the aforesaid energy infrastructures.
