    Two exhibitions on energy saving and water technology and environment, Savenergy 2010 and Envirotec 2010, were opened on Friday in Nicosia by President of the Republic Demetris Christofias, who pointed out that rational use of energy and encouragement to use environmentally friendly forms of energy were among the priorities of the government.

    Speaking at the opening, President Christofias said the government was taking measures to increase the use of renewable energy sources from 1.9% in 2005 to 13% by 2020, and to save energy by 10% by 2016, pointing out that Cyprus was currently 95% dependent on energy, which was above the EU average.

    President Christofias referred to the government`s policy to promote renewable energy sources and to save energy, and measures already implemented, such as the use of photovoltaic systems in public buildings, as well as campaigns to cultivate awareness concerning climate change.

    He added that exhibitions such as Envirotec contribute towards cultivating awareness among citizens concerning the environment and the promotion of technologies and services which protect the environment. President Christofias also referred to the government`s strategy on the environment, adding that measures have already produced successful results.
