In order to enable the propagation of Smart City technology, it is necessary to establish a balance between costs and value. A common approach is to make use of synergies and utilize the same technological infrastructure for different application domains, such as energy, health or traffic. Due to the complexity of such systems a holistic engineering approach is necessary in order to develop open and scalable systems. The presented work discusses a case study that applies Model Driven Engineering concepts and architecture models from the energy domain to extend an existing Demand Side Management system with Ambient Assisted Living functionality. Moreover, the implementation of a key component, the Home Area Management System is described in detail. The paper concludes with considerations about the nature of the infrastructure, necessary for multi-purpose usage. In addition, the applicability of the Smart Grid concepts for developing Smart City systems from other application domains is discussed.
