Czech Republic Electricity Industry Profile 2018 –

The “Electricity
Industry Profiles – Czech Republic” report has been added to’s

Coal will continue to play an important role in the country’s fuel mix,
despite the Czech Republic signing up to an EU pledge to construct no
new plants. By 2030, 40% of installed capacity and 50% of electricity is
forecast to come from coal. The excess in generation capacity has been a
restraining factor on new investments in the past decade, with the
exception of solar photovoltaic (PV).

The period 2011-2013 saw fast solar capacity growth, supported by
regulatory incentives. However, investments stopped in 2014, after the
Czech Republic enacted retrospective changes that ended incentives and
ultimately damaged investor confidence in the political stability of the
support regime in the country. There is limited regulatory or incentive
support for wind and solar power; as a result, investments in both will
be limited. Wind faces local opposition to new developments on aesthetic

In terms of new investments, a total of 6.1 billion is forecast to be
invested by 2030, a majority of which will be in gas-fired generation.
There has been a proposal for a new nuclear reactor at Temelin, but the
lack of demand is a major restraining factor. Despite proposals for
energy market reforms, CEZ will continue to play a leading role in the
sector-from generation to retail. A number of the European majors,
including Innogy and E.On, own transmission and distribution assets in
the country.

There are limited plans for further investments, as other country
markets are prioritised. Other companies active in the market include:
PREdistribuce and Prazska Energetika-a major stake which is owned by
EnBW, Bohemia Energy, and Centropol Energy.
