/LONDON, January 19, 2023, 9:30 GMT, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ This market report offers an incisive and reliable overview of the photovoltaic sector of the country for the next long-term period from 2023 ÷ 2032. The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe. The country is bordered by Poland to the north, Germany to the west, Austria to the south and Slovakia to the east. Its capital and largest city, with 1.3 million inhabitants, is Prague. The Czech Republic includes the historical territories of Bohemia and Moravia and a small part of Silesia. The population of the Czech Republic is 10,352,284 at the end of 2022, and 73.5 % of the population is urban (7,326,511 people in 2022). The total land area is 77,240 Km2 (29,823 sq. miles). Renewable Market Watch™ registered that after a 6-year stagnation in the solar photovoltaic market in the Czech Republic since 2018, the activity in the small-scale residential and commercial segment increased.
In the last few years, the Czech Republic has been the focus of investors’ interest. The political stability and predictability due to the NATO membership and the EU accession, the stable economic perspective and the growing credit rating of the country and its institutions were only some of the elements attracting the investors’ interest. External investors have been attracted by rapidly developing national industry, highly skilled workforce and significant new market. The energy sector is important in Czechia’s economy and security policy.
By 2007, the Czech solar photovoltaic market was undeveloped, with only 4 MW of cumulative installed capacity. The favourable renewable energy law with a very attractive feed-in tariff led to an uncontrolled boom in solar PV installations without adequate government reaction between 2009 and 2011, when almost 2 GW of capacity was installed. In early 2011, the Czech government imposed a retroactive 26 % tax on the income of previously installed PV plants between 2009 and 2010, and this action brought panic and raised international scandal. A lot of concerned investors started court trials against the government. Also, the Czech Republic stopped feed-in tariffs and subsidised photovoltaic installations completely from 1 January 2014, regardless of the size of the photovoltaic power plant.
Investments in new renewable energy generation capacity in the Czech Republic have been moderate in the past five years. Coal remains the primary energy source for electricity production, followed by nuclear power and hydropower. However, activity in the solar photovoltaic (PV) power market in the Czech Republic has been increasing since 2018, according to the recently published study Czech Republic Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook 2022÷ 2031.
The Czech Ministry of Environment announced at the beginning of June 2021 the start of the RES+ program with an initial budget of CZK4.5 billion (€182 million, $216 million). This is a rebate scheme for the support of solar photovoltaic projects supported by the EU’s Modernisation Fund. The projects with a capacity below 1 MW and above 1 MW will be available to apply for funding through the competitive procedure.
Thanks to the Just Transition Fund (JTF) Programme adopted by the Commission on 26 September 2022, the Czech Republic will receive €1.64 billion in EU grants to support the country's efforts to phase out coal-fired power by 2033 and ensure a fair transition to climate neutrality. The JTF will help, in particular, the Czech regions of Karlovarsky, Ústecky and Moravskoslezsky, where there is a high concentration of carbon-intensive industries with 21,000 jobs linked to the coal and chemicals industry. The JTF will make sure that the climate transition will not leave anyone behind.
The Czech solar energy market is expected to be heading toward an expansion phase by 2032. Factors propelling the market growth include concerns regarding the negative environmental impacts of fossil fuels, a decrease in coal power generation capacity, replacement of aged power generation units based on fossil fuels, compliance with the European Green Deal, and others. Also, serious growth in the residential and commercial building stock and economic growth in the largest Czech cities are significant factors driving the solar energy market.
