This is the year for delivering the Energy Union and Cyprus can play an important regional part, said Maroš Šefčovič vice president of the European Commission, responsible for the Energy Union. “We need a better energy community, we need to look at energy in a different way,” Šefčovič stressed at a press conference in Nicosia at the end of his two-day working visit, portal In-Cyprus reported. Cyprus might be an island, but it doesn’t have to be an energy island, he said.

He said the Eastern Mediterranean is seen as very important for energy security of the block and that the island country will participate in its development. Šefčovič said the government is dedicated to enlarging the share of renewable energy to meet targets for 2020. He underscored sunny countries like Cyprus and Europe in general can lead in energy from sun and wind, and that innovations are crucial to promote „smart financing for smart buildings.”

Šefčovič met president Nicos Anastasiades, responsible ministers and representatives of parliamentary groups for energy, trade, industry, foreign and European affairs.
