For the last four years, Aradippou has been developing its investment strategy in order to become a net zero energy Smart City. The project is named “Smart Industrial City Aradippou” and has been developed in collaboration with Energy Cities.
The Smart Industrial City Aradippou strategy focuses on three main sectors to foster economic development:
Over the years Aradippou has developed three industrial zones serving multiple industrial purposes as also the needs of freight transportation.

The 13 INNOVATE partners from 11 EU countries want to motivate homeowners to carry out deep energy retrofits of private residential buildings – single family houses and condominiums. In order to facilitate the process, they will develop and roll out attractive energy retrofit packages, ideally offered in one location – a one-stop-shop.
