CEA contributes actively to the conservation of energy resources, the protection of the environment, and the improvement of the quality of life.
The Cyprus Energy Agency (CEA) is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization, founded in 2009. CEA was cofunded by the European Commission, through the Programme “Intelligent Energy for Europe” and by the Cyprus Union of Communities, for its establishment and first three years of operation.
CEA has become an information point for the local society, providing education and vocational training. It participates in projects in partnership with local, European, and international organizations, contributing to innovation, research, and sustainable development.
It enhances the role of local authorities in sustainable energy planning, providing technical support for developing and implementing actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
CEA also participates in the Cypriot Consortium that coordinates the Regional Innovation and Entrepreneurship Plan of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology for the Levantine region (EIT Climate-KIC RIS), focusing on education, networking, and the development and promotion of innovative solutions for the shaping of a low-carbon economy.
