In this essay we wish to present an interdisciplinary study carried out in the framework of two Interreg Italy-Austria projects which were intended to design methodologies, simulation tools and decision support instruments to face energy challenges within the overall Smart City concept. The proposed strategy uses a physical model (“City Model”) and an energy behavior model (“City Sensing”) of the urban environment. They were developed using two different approaches: the first is mainly based on analysis of surveys data and the second one on simulations and processing of large-scale datasets. “City Model” and “City Sensing” were then merged to provide an Urban Building Energy Model - that we called “City Energy Model” - integrated with a Participatory Public GIS platform.
