1 Policy and law -
What is the government policy and legislative framework for the electricity sector?
The goals of the Czech Republic in the energy sector, including the preferred fuel mix, are outlined in State Energy Policy (SEP) which provides both a long-term as well as a short-term outlook on energy.
The government may update the SEP from time to time.
In 2015, the Czech government approved formation of a long– awaited update of the SEP. The SEP introduces a strategy for the development of Czech energy for next 25 years. The amendment to SEP also identifies the mechanisms that ensure the national security in energy supply and especially proposes a wide diversification of resources and interest in maintaining the existing full independence in the field of heat and electricity supply exports of energy produced.
