    Belgium Solar Photovoltaic PV Power Market Outlook 2020 2030 Small

    /3rd September 2021, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The Czech Republic is the fourth most energy-intensive country in the EU mainly due to the high intensity of its industry (such as metallurgy, steel and coal). After Germany and Poland, the Czech Republic is the third-largest coal producer in the EU. Although gains have been made in reducing energy intensity in the industry sector, the potential for energy efficiency improvements in the buildings and transport sectors is substantial. Energy use and carbon dioxide emissions in these sectors are growing. Energy efficiency improvement is considered a priority to reduce energy consumption and address climate change while also providing benefits for energy security. Investments in new renewable energy generation capacity in the Czech Republic are moderate in the past five years. Coal remains the primary energy source for electricity production, followed by nuclear power and hydropower. However, activity on 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 2021 ÷ 2030.
