    Czech renewables make up 15 pct of electricity consumption in 2020

    January 26, 2022 - Czech News Agency


      Brussels/Prague - The share of renewable energy sources in Czechia's electricity consumption was 15 percent in 2020, which is the fifth lowest figure in the EU, with the EU average at some 37 percent, Eurostat said in its report today.

      Czechia lost ten years of development because of the frustration stemming from the 2009/2010 solar boom (installed capacity up over fourfold yr/yr) whose financial impacts are still evident and used against renewable energy sources, even though the energy market situation is now completely different, ENA analyst Jiri Gavor told CTK.

      Another issue is municipalities' objections to windmills, he said.

      Czechia cannot compete with Austria or Sweden in the use of water and wind energy, however, there is still a lot the country can do in the field of renewables, Gavor said.

      Hopefully, the new government programme will bring adequate conditions for a faster development, he said.

      Data of the Czech Industry and Trade Ministry show that renewable energy accounted for 17.3 percent of electricity consumption at the end of November 2021.
