ČEZ ESCO
Elektromobility

ČEZ ESCO has built a unique battery for Porsche that in just 4 minutes can give an electric car enough power for 100 km

While Porsche’s electric models break one speed record after another around the world, the brand’s dealerships are also preparing for a new era in individual transport. The branch network of the Porsche Inter Auto Group in the Czech Republic is no exception: it will build facilities for its electromobility future with the assistance of ČEZ ESCO. The contract includes the construction and servicing of charging infrastructure at all Porsche branches of the Porsche Inter Auto CZ network of dealerships. The first was the Porsche dealership at Prague – Prosek, where Turbo charging stands run with the backing of a special battery store with a capacity of 320 kW.

Economics and financial news

ČEZ Group earned CZK 8.4 billion in Q1 and confirms the full-year outlook

The financial results for Q1 are in line with initial expectations; ČEZ Group confirms the full-year outlook for operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) of CZK 57 to 60 billion and net profit adjusted for extraordinary items at CZK 17 to 20 billion. Operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) in Q1 reached CZK 19.9 billion, down CZK 6 billion year-on-year. The year-on-year comparison was affected by specific temporary market effects of CZK 3.6 billion due to the revaluation of hedging contracts for production supplies, mainly due to last year's drop in commodity prices on wholesale markets in 2020 Q1 following the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic to Europe. In addition, in Q1 last year, ČEZ achieved a record profit from speculative trading in commodities of almost CZK 3 billion.

Elektromobility

ČEZ doubled its network of public charging stands in two years. The jubilee stand number 300 was put into service by Deputy Prime Minister Havlíček

• Today, ČEZ stands can serve up to 600 electric cars at once

• Electromobility also means transformation of the Czech automobile industry

• In the coming years, charging at ČEZ will be yet faster, thanks to ultra-fast stations

Travelling across the Czech Republic by electric car keeps getting easier, among other things thanks to the expanding offering of public charging stands operated by the energy company ČEZ. The country’s largest network is comparable to larger chains of traditional petrol stations. The jubilee 300th stand, which was erected at the parking lot of the Kaufland chain in Nymburk, was ceremonially put into operation by the Deputy Prime Minister (Minister of Industry and Trade and the Minister of Transport) Karel Havlíček. More than 150 stations were installed thanks to the European Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) grant and the Operating Programme Transport, and dozens more were built and financed by ČEZ itself.

Power plants

Ledvice is transforming into a green energy laboratory: after a unique accumulation water turbine, ČEZ tests modern solar panels for large new power plants

Small capacity, but great potential. ČEZ uses the new photovoltaic power plant in Ledvice to test the properties and suitability of various types of panels that it wants to deploy, following the assessment, in large solar parks that the company is planning. The aggregate capacity of these sources, which will contribute to the achievement of the Czech Republic’s climate goals and commitments, should reach tens of thousands of MWs in the next 10 years. This spring, the first large power plant using solar power, located on the roof of the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant parking lot, will start supplying emissions-free power to the grid. The largest solar installation in the last ten years, with a capacity of 2.3 MWp, will be built on the roofs of the automobile manufacturer Škoda Auto. It will be built by ČEZ ESCO.
