“An innovation project exclusively for the schools of Cyprus. A project of total building upgrade for quality education. A project for sustainability and the school environment. ”

The PEDIA project (Promoting Energy efficiency & Developing Innovative Approaches in schools - Promoting Energy Efficiency & Developing Innovative Approaches in Schools) is the first project that comprehensively and comprehensively approaches the needs of school buildings in Cyprus, in order to transform them into Almost Zero Energy Buildings (NEBBs), seeking at the same time to deal with chronic and timeless problems, such as heating, air conditioning, lighting and ventilation. Among other things, the school buildings themselves are sought to become learning tools and places of experiential education for the development of environmental and energy awareness.

The PEDIA project is coordinated by the Cyprus Energy Office, in collaboration with the Education Unit for the Environment and Sustainable Development of the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth (YPAN), undertaking a wide range of actions aimed at improving energy efficiency and comfort conditions at least 25 public school buildings in Cyprus, thus contributing to the achievement of the National and European goals of Cyprus for energy and climate.

Through the Cohesion Policy Programme, "THALEA 2021-2027", the construction part of the project is co-financed, while the technical support part is financed through the European Union PDA (Project Development Assistance) program of Horizon 2020, and the PEDIA project.

Through PEDIA, investments of €20 million are activated and a financing mechanism is developed to implement the long-term strategy of the Ministry of Education and Culture for the energy upgrade of all public school buildings, which is achieved through the introduction of a procedural framework based on environmental, energy and socio-economic Criteria.
