The theme of smart grids will connote in the immediate future the production and distribution of electricity, integrating effectively and in a sustainable way energy deriving from large power stations with that distributed and supplied by renewable sources. In programmes of urban redevelopment, however, the historical city has not yet been subject to significant experimentation, also due to the specific safeguard on this kind of Heritage. This reflection opens up interesting new perspectives of research and operations, which could significantly contribute to the pursuit of the aims of the Smart City. This is the main goal of the research here presented and focused on the binomial renovation of a historical complex/enhancement and upgrading of its energy efficiency.
