The Energy Department of the Energy, Environment and Water Research Centre (EEWRC) of the Cyprus Institute studies the energy transition of Cyprus and the wider region and develops new technologies and tools to address national and regional climate change.


The largest research infrastructure in Cyprus, it is devoted to research, development and testing of Renewable Energy Solutions with emphasis on Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST), Thermal Energy Storage (TES) and thermal Desalination of Sea Water (DSW)

The first prototype of its kind in Cyprus, it is integrated in the built environment, suitable for flat roofs and able to provide space heating, cooling and industrial process heat

The TESLAB is a Lab for experiments in Thermal Energy Storage, allowing for the development of ancillary hardware such as level sensors and heat exchangers

It is an advanced heliostat testing facility with the objective to experimentally test heliostat performance and heliostat tracking, heliostat characterization etc

Laboratory to conduct experiments on MED desalination suitable for integrating at the PROTEAS infrastructure

is an experimental facility for testing advanced active technologies for the buildings and the neighbourhoods of the future operated by the Sustainable Built Environment (SBE) Group of the Energy Department.

The Lab exploits the possibilities offered by scientific observation of the built environment and is equipped with cutting-edge sensing devices to monitor thermal and luminous variables and indoor air quality to characterise indoor building spaces and the urban environment.

Custom engineering design for converting the heat at PROTEAS to electricity and using it for other polygenerative outputs.
