Cynergy Project The Action

The Action

CYnergy provides a holistic approach towards the adoption of Natural Gas (NG) in Cyprus and the development of a sustainable and fully functional NG market for providing clean and affordable energy to the end user. The project, which is co-financed by the EU, is a collaboration of energy, transport and finance experts as well as public and governmental institutions of Cyprus and Greece.
