  • 25. Latest News concerning WindEnergy in Czech Republic The total of 93 wind turbines were operated in the Czech Republic at the end of 2010. Compared with 2009, the number increased by eight. The total installed capacity of these resources by the end of the year amounted to 214.78 MW, which is by 11.37% more YOY. Interest of investors in wind projects has been continually growing since 2006. Source: CIA, 21st July 2011 Power utility CEZ (CEZ Group; ČEZ, a. s.) is not considering any other own photovoltaic power plant projects and/or acquisitions of existing plants outside its current portfolio. According to Mr. Kožušník, general director of CEZ Reneable Energy, CEZ sees potential for the raising the volume of hydro sources, wind energy and/or the usage of biomass.

  • 31. 6. Biofuels in the Czech Republic
  • 32. Biofuels in the Czech Rep. -- The most common biofuels: • Rapeseed oil methylester • Bioethanol -- Pure biofuels & high-biofuel blends • Fuel E85 • Fuel E95 -- The Czech Republic currently ranks 6th highest among the EU25 in terms of biodiesel production capacity. With a capacity of 203 ktoe per year in 2006, it clearly surpasses the production capacity of bioethanol (1.1 ktoe in 2005)Source: European Commission, January 2007Source: European Biodiesel Board, June 2010
  • 33. Biofuels in the Czech Rep.Key information about biofuels in the Czech Republic:-- There are 16 biodiesel plants in the Czech Republic (leader in # of sites)-- There are 4 Czech producers of Bioethanol-- Rapid increase in production, slow increase in biofuels consumption (we are not reaching 60% of consumption in Germany/ France).-- There is a common negative attitude against using biofuels of first generation.-- Increase of MEŘO addition (up to 10% by 2020) into diesel -> higher consumption & production of rapeseed oil.
