heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as a part of the MSc in Energy Systems at the International Hellenic University. In the past few years Renewable Energy Sources are in the top list of policymakers around Europe. Cyprus as part of the European Union follows the guidelines set for all Member States and tries to increase the renewable energy production. The scope of this Master Thesis is to present the Costs and Benefits of each Renewable technology in Cyprus and discuss whether they are beneficial for the society as a whole. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my supervisor Dr. Theodoros Zachariadis for the time he has spent providing me with very useful comments, remarks, guidance and motivation throughout the research and writing process of this Thesis. I also want to thank all the professors and academic assistants of the International Hellenic University for the knowledge they have provided me with this whole year, which helped me broaden my horizons. I am really grateful to my dearest friend Charis Charalambous, for his help in proof-reading and correcting my text. Finally, I would like to thank my family and all my other friends for all their invaluable support
