Promotion of Energy Efficiency
Within the framework of the project, it is intended to convert a number of school buildings into Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB).
The project aims to improve the energy efficiency and comfort conditions of a number of public-school buildings in Cyprus, thus contributing to the achievement of the National and European Goals of Cyprus on energy and climate. This will be achieved by implementing holistic solutions regarding the thermal insulation of ceilings and walls, the installation of high energy efficiency windows, the application of shading systems, photovoltaic systems, automation, efficient cooling and ventilation solutions, and the creation of green roofs.
The project is expected to lead to the transition from piecemeal temporary and individual solutions to long-term holistic and permanent approaches, where the schools themselves, in addition to zero energy consumption buildings, will become an organic part of the school’s pedagogical and social functions.
The project is also expected to be the starting point for the development of a long-term energy renovation strategy for all public-school buildings, introducing a process framework for energy upgrades based on environmental, energy and socio-economic criteria.
