Teeschools project was presented by Cyprus Energy Agency on the 6th International Conference on Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Efficiency - New Challenges that took place in Nicosia on 1st - 2nd November 2018.
This conference was organised by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI). The event took place during an extremely challenging time for Cyprus energy strategy, which should seriously consider energy efficiency and exploitation of renewable energy sources in parallel with the exploitation of oil and natural gas reserves. The theme that was chosen for this conference is as much local, as it is global. Many synergies exist between renewables and energy efficiency in both technical and policy contexts. Institutions such as the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) are working with policy makers and businesses to better understand the synergies and trade-offs of these two important tools and how to adapt policies to optimise impact.
