This research has been carried out in the context of a national organization project (PON04a2_F), promoted by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research under the tutelage of the European Community. It is part of a more complex “Smart Cities” project, and it is devoted to the realization of an alternative system for green energy production. It includes an electrical power supply generated from the anaerobic digestion of biomass and the storage of electrical energy in a superconducting magnetic energy storage device in order to overcome energy blackout and meet the energy needs of the network when the demand rises in closed-cycle production systems.
