Heating plants will spend ca. CZK 4bn on the purchase of heat production allowances in 2019.

(ČIA) Heating plants will spend ca. CZK 4bn on the purchase of heat production allowances in 2019. The Heating Association (TS ČR) has informed that higher prices of allowances and lower free allocation are the main reason of the foreseen increase in prices charged by heating plants participating in the emission allowance trading. Proceeds from the allowances are a source of income for the state budget, which gained CZK 7bn this way in 2017. The income in 2018 will reach over CZK 13bn. The budget will receive a similar sum in 2019.
