E&EDB Lab Director: Aimilios Michael, Ph.D., Assistant Professor

The Energy & Environmental Design of Buildings Research Laboratory (EEDB Lab.), was founded in 2014 and is part of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Cyprus. The laboratory participates in several national and EU-funded research projects and the personnel are members of international associations and networks. The EEDB Research Lab., was established in order to cover research and technological innovation in the fields of energy, and environmental design in Cyprus and also in European level.

The goal of EEDB Research Lab., is to perform trans-disciplinary applied and fundamental research that can contribute to and produce solutions for real-life problems. The Lab., collaborates with national and international academic institutions, industrial partners, non-profit and governmental organizations to assure that the outcomes of its activity are directly applicable to the actual needs of the society.

The EEDB Lab has established a well-equipped laboratory. The facilities allow for a wide range of measurements in all aspects of indoor human comfort conditions and outdoor environmental parameters including wet bulb, dry bulb and globe temperature, relative humidity, air velocity, lighting levels, CO2 emissions, solar radiation, outdoor wind speed and direction et.al. The laboratory also provides computing power for advanced simulation software and has direct access to databases and inventories with information.
