This paper proposes the exploitation of simulation techniques to evaluate energy optimization strategies in smart micro-grids. In particular, a container based deployment approach allows for running simulations in the Cloud, evaluating multiple scenarios and optimization algorithms. Here we present both the simulator technology and an original two-phases optimization algorithm that computes a sub-optimal solution in real time. We introduce a simple scenario with real data.
