A desirable approach to achieve integration and coordination of energy infrastructures in a Smart City is to develop multi-energy carrier systems where different energy resources are optimized following a holistic approach. This chapter presents two optimization methodologies: the first aiming to solve an operating problem; and the second to solve a planning problem. The optimal control of multi-carrier energy resources is obtained through the solution of a nonlinear optimization problem aimed at minimizing the overall cost of production, equipment wear (BESS) and interruption costs. The chapter collects some results of the "San Paolo Power Park" research project. The project was aimed substantially at the design of an energy district, in which combining low environmental impact methods is possible to fulfill urban regeneration objectives, improving the quality of life of citizens. The project is part of the Strategic Plan for the development of the metropolitan area of the city of Bari.
