    Abstract

    When a city adds a renewable generation to improve its carbon footprint, this step towards a greener city can be a step towards a smarter city. Strategical positioning of new urban electricity components makes the city more resilient to electricity outages. Money and resilience are two conflicting goals in this case. In case of blackouts, renewable generation, other than distributed combustion generations, can serve critical demand to essential city nodes, such as hospitals, water purification facilities, and police stations. Not the last, the city level stakeholders might be interested in envisioning monetary saving related to introducing a renewable. To provide decision makers with resilience and monetary information, it is needed to analyze the impact of introducing the renewable into the grid. This paper introduces a novel tool suitable for this purpose and reports on the validation efforts. The outcomes indicate that predicted outcomes of two alternative points of introducing renewables into the grid can be analyzed with the help of the tool and ultimately be meaningfully compared.
