ENERGO SUMMIT



Marie Zezůlková, Director of National Center for Energy Savings, focuses on the topic Towns and villages 2030

We are witnessing great acceleration of the  technological development of the society.  At the same time, however, cities and municipalities still have a historical loss in basic infrastructure, such as transport, amenities, etc. Modern technologies across the whole society, from business to household, are permeating this. Social demand forces the public sphere to change the functioning of cities and municipalities. The success of their further development will be decided by the chosen technology platform. This applies, for example, to the energy economy of towns and municipalities.

It will not be important to buy electricity or heat, the society will require user comfort, ecological operation and minimum price. This change of management will come with the generation of millennials who will begin to shape the thinking of a new generation of towns and cities in the next decade.

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.
