The Czech Republic has one of the lowest energy important dependencies in the European Union, mainly due to its domestically produced solid fuels. It is an important producer of hard coal and imports are limited to natural gas and oil. Coal is the main energy source for electricity production. The second important source is nuclear power. The share of renewable energy sources has also been increasing, but allthough is still below EU average. The Czech Republic is the third-largest electricity exporter in the European Union, after France and Germany. Wind energy potential depends on geographical and climatic conditions in a given region. It is estimated that available wind energy potential in the Czech Republic corresponds to a power of about 2,700 MW. Several areas with wind speeds of 9 m/s at 50 m above ground level were identified in the Czech Republic.
The Promotion Act implements EU Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of electricity produced from RES in the internal electricity market into Czech law. Under the new EU Directive 2009/28/EC, which replaces EU Directive 2001/77/EC, the Czech Republic is committed to achieve a binding target of a thirteen percent (13%) share of RES-Electricity in gross final consumption by 2020 (the share in the transport industry to be ten percent (10%)). The National Action Plan issued by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and approved by the Czech government on 8 November 2012, proposes and expects the Czech Republic to achieve a fourteen percent (14%) share of RES-Elec¬tricity in gross final consumption in 2020 with a ten point eight percent (10.8%) share in the transport industry.
The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to increase the energy efficiency, increase use of renewable resources, nuclear sources, and connecting to the European power infrastructure.
