The Laboratory performs tests for hot water storage tanks (ΕΝ12977-3) and for electric heat tanks (prEN50440) for compliance purposes with Energy labelling and Eco-design
The Applied Energy Laboratory is a government organization that operates under the Energy Service of the Ministry of Energy, Commerce and Industry. It is one of the 24 EU solar thermal labs. The Applied Energy Laboratory is an accredited laboratory under CYS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017, recognized by European Certification Bodies, authorized by European Committee for Standardization to certify thermal solar technologies, according to specific international standards (ΕΝ12975-1, ISO9806, ΕΝ12976 and ISO 9459).
The Laboratory performs tests for hot water storage tanks (ΕΝ12977-3) and for electric heat tanks (prEN50440) for compliance purposes with Energy labelling and Eco-design. Government departments and semi-government organisations utilize it, as well as solar thermal systems manufacturers in Cyprus, organisations participating in research programs but also non-Cypriot customers and importers.
It contributes, inter alia, to the formation and optimization of the technical specifications of solar thermal systems manufactured and marketed in Cyprus, it provides certification services to the industry, assistance to the local industry in developing more efficient products while allowing the government to rationalise criteria for solar thermal incentive programs.
