With the existing energy systems and electricity grids worldwide being developed as smart systems and grids with increased renewable energy in general, there are critical needs in smart grid knowledge, development, testing, demonstration, evaluation, education and training. The University of Cyprus (UCY) is presently establishing a complete new green-field campus in Nicosia and is looking at the opportunity to introduce smart, sustainable and cost and energy efficient solutions for the energy services at the campus as a truly smart grid living lab. As part of this vision, UCY plans to install 10MWp PV capacity and 1MW/1MWh battery storage at the campus. This paper presents the specific context of the power system in Cyprus and the future UCY microgrid along with the possible and expected impacts of the PV plant and Battery Energy Storage System. The battery control strategies are tested at the experimental facility SYSLAB at The Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
