The general strategic approach and baseline of the Institute in the General Thematic Area of Clean Energy & Environmental Impacts monitoring and reduction is to perform high quality applied R&D and develop / sustain the respective infrastructure in a concerted effort to take advantage of Greece’s climatic conditions and rich potential for Renewable Energy Sources (RES, particularly solar) development and exploitation. Further strategic aims are related to:
  • the need to serve the growth of the existing energy – environment industry in the country in a safe and efficient manner (e.g. power generation and chemical industry, hydrocarbons industry, solar thermal manufacturing sector, energy / environmental service providers (mostly SMEs), etc);
  • the need to study climate change (through measurements and modeling) and mitigate its effects on a regional scale.
  • the need to monitor, analyze and assess the indoor and outdoor air quality, provide detailed characterization of pollution sources and their radiological and health impacts under various conditions (urban, industrial, etc).
  • the need to develop analytical protocols and risk assessment methods for existing and new POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants), to monitor levels in food, environment and population (blood and breast milk), to evaluate human exposure and examine public health issues related to POPs.
