News in the climate and energy policies to be presented at ENERGO SUMMIT by Mr. Pavel Zámyslický from the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic

In his speech entitled “News in the Climate and Energy Policies” he will deal with current development especially with regard to the legislation which is negotiated or has been recently approved at the EU level and is to be implemented in the Czech Republic. It will then influence also the development of the Czech energy policy and the contribution of the Czech Republic to the EU objectives till 2030. Pavel Zámyslický has completed his studies in the branch of heavy-current electrotechnics and power engineering at the Brno University of Technology and then in the field of economy and power engineering management at the Czech Technical University in Prague, where he completed his doctor studies successfully in 2013. In his theses as well as dissertation he was dealing with various links between emission trading and capital expenditures in the sector of power engineering. Since 2005 he has been working at the Ministry of the Environment, where he has been in the post of Director of the Energy and Climate Protection Department since 2007. On a professional basis he deals with domestic as well as European climate and energy policies and their tools. In particular, for example trading in emissions allowances in the EU ETS.

Mr. Tomáš Buzrla to have a speech at the ENERGO SUMMIT for the Solar Association, focused on the topic “Photovoltaics as a part of the modern power engineering system”

Ing. Tomáš Buzrla, Chairman of the Board of the Solar Association, has been active in the photovoltaic sector for more than ten years. Since 2004 he has been operating as the director of a company dealing with trading in emissions allowances. In 2007 he took part in foundation of the Energy 21 Company, which has become the largest private operator of solar power plants in Central Europe. Tomáš Buzrla has been in the post of Chairman of the Board of the Solar Association since November 2016. The Solar Association is the largest professional association of entrepreneurs in the sector of solar power engineering and other supporters of solar energy, building especially upon transparency and professionalism. It helps its members as well as those interested in the entry into the sector of solar power engineering to achieve compliance with various regulative obligations or to choose a good firm. At present the Solar Association associates more than 450 members from such sectors as production of panels and batteries, installation firms, servicing firms, firms offering solutions for electricity accumulation, operators of solar power plants, electricity traders, universities, research workplaces, financial institutions, banks etc., and the number of our members continues to grow permanently. That is why the Association represents more than 1,200 megawatts of capacities installed: from the smallest roof power plants to large solar parks. Through its activities it therefore covers more than one half of the Czech solar market.

District heating in the context of transformation of the European power engineering to be presented by Martin Hájek, Director of the Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic

The European power engineering sector is at the threshold of the second decade of the transformation process. The requirements for energy efficiency as well as use of renewable energy sources should rise by 2030 again. Is transformation of the power engineering under the Brussels control manageable in the Czech Republic or will it mean further extreme pressure on energy consumers’ budgets? What is the role played by district heating in this transformation and how can it contribute to this transformation? Will we need district heating and how will it look like? Martin Hájek, Director of the Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic, will try to answer these questions.

Štěpán Chalupa, Chairman of the Chamber of Renewable Energy Sources, to have a speech at the ENERGO SUMMIT on the topic “Czech Republic and Environment for Renewable Sources 2.0”

The Czech Republic can increase production of energy from renewable energy sources by at least 10 percentage points by 2030. Moreover, it is not true anymore that the existence of renewable energy sources would need a massive subsidy. Nevertheless, state supporting mechanisms are and still will be, for several years, an important tool for the strengthening of the role played by renewable energy sources in the energy mix.

Vladimír Vlk, representative of the Energy Regulatory Office, to deal with the Tariff Structure in his speech within the framework of the ENERGO SUMMIT

Ing. Vladimír Vlk, Member of the Board of the Energy Regulatory Office, completed his studies at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. He has been active in the power engineering sector for more than 35 years. His first employer in this sector was a power engineering company (currently ČEZ, a.s.), where he worked (till 1985) in the posts of the Twin Unit Manager and Chief Engineer in the field of operation of the power engineering units. From 1986 he worked at the Škoda Praha Company in the posts of Shift Engineer and Head of the Launching Group. Vladimír Vlk worked at ČEZ, a.s. (again) between 2014 and 2016, but at that time already as a Member of the Supervisory Board.

Mr. Bohuslav Čížek, Director of the Department of Economic Affairs at the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, to speak on the topic “Energy Savings in the Czech Republic – Objectives and Tool”

The European legislation sets out objectives for energy savings, and the Czech Republic, like a number of other countries, has serious difficulty meeting these objectives. The legislative framework for the period till 2030 will be still stricter according to the proposals discussed. The study, which has been drawn up at the Confederation’s request, provides for a definition of particular measures for energy savings, identifies the potential of given measures in individual sectors, estimates the cost-efficiency of these measures and mainly calculates the general financial demands and total potential of energy savings in the Czech Republic between 2021 and 2030. The ambitious objectives, however, cannot be implemented without a form of a public support and in this context it is necessary to speak in a magnitude of hundreds of billions of Czech crowns. The Confederation is active in creation of optimum environment for investment in energy savings also in the present period and is an important intermediate link in the discussion between ministries and companies. In this matter we have issued, for examples, a common appeal on the Government of the Czech Republic – http://www.spcr.cz/pro-media/tiskove-zpravy/11528-plneni-evropskych-cilu- energetickych-uspor-je-pro-cr-kriticke. Within the framework of the Operational Programme Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness the Confederation intensively communicates with all parties and regularly comes with initiatives for a better setup of the Programme which should be (in terms of the volume and financial support) the backbone of the support of energy savings in this period.

Dagmar Kuchtová, Director General of the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, to speak on the topic “Transforming power engineering and priorities of the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic”

Power engineering has been undergoing a number of principal changes in recent years, which bring new requirements and appeals. The structure of resources is changing and it is possible to register various decentralisation trends. The growth of renewable sources requires stable and flexible base load sources. Another change factor consists of growing environmental requirements and regulatory environment. The Confederation is one of the main drivers of the discussion process and takes part, for example, in preparation of particular steps in the field of energy savings. We have commissioned a study which is unique at the European-wide level and has stirred up much interest also in Brussels. It is quite sure that capital expenditures aimed at energy savings will require hundreds of billions in the years to come. The Confederation endeavours to ensure transparency and foreseeability of the entrepreneurial environment in the power engineering sector and wants the Czech electricity sector to be able to cope with all important challenges it is about to face.
