FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy proudly announces that the SmartPV Project has won the LIFE Citizen’s Prize (#LIFEAwards19). We are grateful for your votes & support!
The Project “Smart net metering for promotion and cost-efficient grid-integration of PV technology in Cyprus” with the Acronym SmartPV, is co-financed by the EU through the LIFE+ Programme. This Project is in line with the general and specific objectives of LIFE+ Environment, Policy, and Governance particularly as regards to contribution in implementation, updating and developing environmental policy.
- To develop and validate a cost optimum scheme for higher RES penetration in the energy mix of Cyprus.
- To give market-driven incentives to consumers who become local producers (prosumers) thus alleviating any “need” for costly Feed-in-tariff (FIT) schemes to be in place.
- To facilitate implementation and have a real contribution to environment policies adopted in Cyprus as set by the EU.
- To use the gained knowledge on optimization of net metering in Cyprus for the development of metering schemes & policies in other EU countries.
