The Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES) is the Greek organization for Renewable Energy Sources (RES), Rational Use of Energy (RUE) and Energy Saving (ES). CRES has been appointed as the national co-ordination centre in its area of activity. Its main goal is the research and promotion of RES/RUE/ES applications at a national and international level, as well as the support of related activities, taking into consideration the principles of sustainable development.

CRES is responsible for developing and promoting the Greek Green Homes & Green Mortgage programme and its promotion to other National Energy Agencies that may be interested in adopting the project’s approach. Furthermore, CRES leads the project’s task related to the Review and Knowledge Sharing of successful initiatives to alleviate Energy Poverty.
