The PEDIA (Promoting Energy efficiency & Developing Innovative Approaches in schools) aims to upgrade the school buildings of Cyprus to Near Zero Energy Consumption Buildings (NEE). This, through the adoption of a holistic approach that is in line with the proposal of the interdisciplinary committee to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports & Youth, to improve thermal comfort conditions in school classrooms.
