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.

A representative of the Chamber of Trade and Industry for the Commonwealth of Independent States to speak at the ENERGO SUMMIT as well

One of the professional partners of the ENERGO SUMMIT is the Chamber of Trade and Industry for the Commonwealth of Independent States, which is a non-governmental, autonomous and independent legal entity, whose members can be both legal entities and natural persons; its membership base consists of industrial enterprises, commercial banks, insurance companies, as well as advisory firms. At present it includes approximately 150 entities. The Chamber works intensively with representative bodies of involved countries, accredited in the Czech Republic or for the Czech Republic, especially the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan, Azerbaidzhan, Armenia, as well as Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. An important place in the Chamber’s activity belongs to cooperation with Czech embassies in the involved countries. Ing. František Masopust, Chairman of the Board of the Chamber, will introduce, in his speech, the activities of the Chamber, position of the renewable energy sources in the energy mix of the CIS countries and possible forms of operation of Czech companies on the market of the CIS countries in the field of power engineering and renewable energy sources, including existing cases of cooperation.

What are the prospects of energy storage development? To be answered at the ENERGO SUMMIT by Mr. Jan Fousek

Mgr. Jan Fousek is the Chief Executive Officer of the Association for Energy Storage and Batteries (AKU BAT CZ), which supports development of large-capacity energy storages in the Czech Republic, especially in the field of legislation changes. He operates also as the Chamber of the Supervisory Board of the Solar Association of the Czech Republic, where he is responsible for the European agenda, participation in international conferences and in delegations and contacts with media. He is a top manager of the Solar Global a.s. Group, one of leading Czech producers of photovoltaic energy, where he leads, from the post of a director, one of subsidiaries, the firm “Solar Global Energy a.s.”. He has been active on energy markets since 2007. The objectives of the AKU-BAT Association will be presented at the beginning of the lecture. The second part will be focused on challenges imposed by energy storage development in the Czech Republic, especially on amendments to the Energy Act, whose result should be at first the arrangement of storage facilities. Another challenge is the issue of the arising of licences for energy storage and setting up of conditions for determination of regulatory fees of the Energy Regulatory Office. The third challenge will be the change in the Transmission Grid Code, towards the release of conditions for provision of support services. The topic of the third part will be energy storage in an outlook of 10-20 years, which places emphasis on the combining of individual types of energy storage. The implemented projects will be presented at the end.
