UCY’s FOSS to study fu­ture of elec­tric­ity grid

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

The FOSS Re­search Cen­tre for Sus­tain­able Energy of the Univer­sity of Cyprus has been con­tracted by the Joint Re­search Cen­tre (JRC) of the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion to un­der­take a study on the fu­ture elec­tric­ity grid of Cyprus.

The Univer­sity said in a state­ment that the study in­volves tech­ni­cal as­pects re­lated to the fu­ture power grid and the elec­tric­ity mar­ket in Cyprus based on the ob­jec­tives set by Europe for 2030.

The JRC was re­quested to con­duct a study on the power grid sys­tem and the elec­tric­ity mar­ket of Cyprus in or­der to shape a na­tional strat­egy which meets the tar­gets set for 2030. In ad­di­tion to the EU strat­egy for 2030, this study will take into con­sid­er­a­tion the re­sults of the study en­ti­tled “Re­new­able Energy Roadmap for the Re­pub­lic of Cyprus”, con­ducted by the In­ter­na­tional Re­new­able Energy Agency (IRENA), on be­half of the Cypriot gov­ern­ment.

The JRC is­sued a Euro­pean ten­der and FOSS was se­lected as the most qual­i­fied part­ner to pre­pare the above very de­mand­ing study.

This latest JRC-FOSS part­ner­ship will sup­port Cyprus on tech­ni­cal is­sues re­lated to the energy grid and the elec­tric­ity mar­ket and will be a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to Cyprus, the press re­lease ends.
