National Energy Action Plan of Czech Republic

The main objective of the energy sector is to satisfy the energy needs of the Czech Republic for the long-term horizon. The current National Energy Conception, whose key priorities are safety, independence and sustainable development, envisages that safe supply of energy for reasonable prices shall be guaranteed primarily by the use of all available domestic energy sources as well as the best available global technologies in the most environmentally friendly manner. Renewable sources represent an important part of these domestic sources and are likely to gradually develop while fully respecting the size, climatic conditions and parameters of energy grids in the Czech Republic.

Czech Republic renewable energy 2020 targets:

  • Overall target: 13.5% of share of energy generated from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption;
  • Heating and Cooling: 14% of demand met by renewable energy sources;
  • Electricity: 14% of electricity demand met by electricity generated from renewable energy sources;
  • Transport: 11% of energy demand met by renewable energy sources.
