On the occasion of the global phenomenon of Climate Change, Cyprus Energy Agency, in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy, Commerce and Industry, organizes the conference "Policies and Recommendations for Energy Saving | Energy Management - Energy Efficiency - Local Action Plans".  

The Workshop will be held on Friday, the 5th of April, at the Strovolos Cultural Center and aims to inform and raise awareness among stakeholders about the importance of energy efficiency and energy management. This is because the energy efficiency of buildings contributes directly and indirectly to saving energy and natural resources, as well as mitigating and adapting to climate change. 

Through the presentations that will take place during the conference, participants will be informed about topics related to energy upgrades, RES exploitation and energy saving practices, which will lead closer to the national 2020 targets and set the ground for the 2030’s targets. Also, the conference will highlight the role of Local Government in Climate Change, the challenges it faces, and the opportunities presented. 

Addressing VIOLET’S objectives, Good Practises regarding the Restoration of Historic Buildings with energy efficient criteria will be presented and the suggestions from the VIOLET’S Action Plan for Cyprus will be discussed.
