University campuses are not only responsible for high energy demand, but also set examples for the community by implementing energy sustainability projects. In such context, in 2013, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) launched the UPM City of the Future initiative. One of the main projects within this initiative was the design, development and deployment of an IoT-based platform which allowed for the experimentation and evaluation of Smart City services in the Moncloa Campus of International Excellence (CEI Moncloa). This paper proposes the optimization of the energy consumption and renewable energy generation in a set of buildings of the ETSIT-UPM Campus by using pho-tovoltaic solar panels on the facades and roofs of buildings and the incorporation of actuators to allow intelligent control of lighting and air conditioning. First, an analysis of the consumption in a complete year cycle and the evaluation of current carbon footprint is developed. From this point, the capacity of the buildings to generate energy by means of photovoltaic cells which cover up to 44% of current demand is assessed, as well as the impact of energy storage solu-tions. Such options lead to a total decrease of the carbon footprint, ensuring the required consumption levels to be qualified as nZEB. In order to ensure such monitoring and control, the IoT-based platform deployed in the CEI Moncloa campus was used, and new energy services to be included in the future were pro-posed. These services, to be implemented on the IoT-based platform Smart CEI Moncloa, are based on real-time monitoring to ensure a higher matching between local generation and demand, as well as to reduce cost and ensure a significative reduction of carbon footprint.
