© 2016 IEEE.A decarbonized society involves people living and working in low-energy and low-emission buildings. A smart multi-Terminal DC micro-grids interconnecting several autonomous zero-net energy buildings (ZNEBs) allow the transition to a decarbonized economy, however, involves several challenges. This paper evaluates the problem of an optimal topology for a cluster of several ZNEBs and it takes several advantages related to the holistic operation and planning. A high-resolution electricity demand model is used together with several scenarios of stochasticity (weather, human behaviour, etc.) in order to create several credible scenarios of electricity demand at each ZNEB and then solve the constrained optimization problem of two network topologies for the cluster of interacting ZNEB. This paper has demonstrated the appropriate performance of the proposed approach using a verys simple, demonstrative/illustrative, example, a cluster of three DC-Houses.
