The Cyprus Energy Agency participates to the EMPOWER project, aiming at improving the Island’s power system and modernize it.
The EMPOWER project aims to contribute to the strengthening of the Cyprus electricity system, using smart tools and systems without affecting the stability and reliability of the system. Behind the project, the ambitious goal is to develop sustainable and intelligent technologies and tools for the electric power system of Cyprus. The project’s results are expected to bring multiple socio-economic benefits for Cyprus.
The 10 members consortium is led by The Center of Excellence for Research and Innovation “Koios” of the University of Cyprus. The project builds on a high quality and multidisciplinary consortium, creating essential synergies between members of the quadruple helix of the Cyprus economy, build a critical mass of researchers, and develop young scientists for performing high-level research. The project is implemented in cooperation with all major electricity operators of the Island, but also a significant contribution from companies and Organizations of the sector.

The Project INTEGRATED/0916/0035 is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research and Innovation Foundation with 1 million euro. It started in 2019 and should last for 3 years.
