The Base - The Quick Energy Check: Users can easily find out where the potential of energy savings in their households are – electricity, heating, or fuel? You have to know about your status. This is the focal point of the online tool, as it allows each individual to assess their current situation and find out how to save energy and money. All you need to know is how much you pay for energy.
RES: the user can according of the occupants of their household and their electricity bill, find out the best size of installation of solar panels for electricity and hot water production.
Vehicle: the car is often one of the biggest energy consumer in the household. Every litre fuel counts – for the bill and the environment. With this feature you are able to compare your old car with a new one, or two new models in terms of consumption and emissions.
Appliances: Everyday appliances appear to contribute little to the total energy consumption in a household but add up quickly. Eight different categories of appliances, plus lighting, are assessed on their consumption based on the standards of the EU Energy Label

Part of EU financed Energy efficiency project
The online tool is part of a project to strengthen the implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive in Cyprus conducted by Environment Agency Austria in cooperation with MECI and CEA. The project is funded by the Structural Reform Support Service of the European Commission.
