The Ministry of Energy, Commerce, and Industry, together with the Cyprus Energy Agency and the Environment Agency of Austria are proud to present the Energy Savings Tool – an online tool to help individuals to make energy-and cost-efficient choices.
The tool offers a series of functions to calculate potential energy savings, and is a helpful support for Cypriot households in order to reduce their energy consumption and energy bills.
The online tool is part of a project to strengthen the implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive in Cyprus. The project is conducted by the Environment Agency of Austria, in cooperation with MECIT and CEA. The project is funded by the Structural Reform Support Service of the European Commission.
The tool is available on energysavingstool.cea.org.cy Discover it now!
- 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.
- PV and Solar Thermal: According to the occupants of their household and their electricity bill, users can 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 consumers in a household. Every liter of fuel counts for both the bill and the environment. With this feature, users are able to compare their 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.
