The STS-Med is an ENPI CBC Med-funded project in which The Cyprus Institute participates as a partner, and focuses on the development and implementation of pioneering technologies for improving energy efficiency in public buildings. The project deploys four demonstrative plants in Cyprus, Egypt, Italy and Jordan for a total power of 400 kW.
The project was recently selected as a winner of the Emirates Energy Award (EEA) in the small projects category. The EEA is a regional prize awarded every two years, with an aim to encourage the rational use of energy and resources, and to highlight the best practices and pioneering work in energy efficiency, alternative energy, sustainability and protection of the environment. The EEA commenced in 2012, and is awarded by The Supreme Council of Energy of the United Arab Emirates, which reviews and conducts the award assessment and selection based on specific criteria.
A celebration will be held in October 2017 under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai for the awarding of prizes to the winners. The award will be received by Prof. Rebhi A. Damseh, project coordinator from the Jordanian partner Al Balqa – Applied University.
