The new act on supported energy sources with Senate’s amendments was adopted by Parliament on 31st January 2012.
The Parliament agreed to merge all supported energy sources for electricity and heat production (renewables, secondary energy sources, combined heat and power) into one single act of law proposed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry. This time the government tries to prevent the second boom in capacity growth of the single energy technology (the case of photovoltaic in 2010).
The act stipulates the financial support for heat production from renewable and secondary energy sources by installations with an installed capacity of more than 200 kW, including CHP systems. Supported installations deliver heat to district heating networks or for industrial purposes. The financial support (heat bonus paid on a yearly basis) was set at 50 Kč/GJ (2€/GJ) and does not apply to solar systems, heat pumps systems and other that would impair the current average efficiency of district heating networks. Support remains to be financed by all energy consumers.
Save the date! The 5th International Solar District Heating Conference will take place on 11 and 12 April 2018 in Graz, Austria.
