ČEZ finally takes over ŠKODA JS, a major Czech company, primarily operating in nuclear servicing and engineering

Yesterday, the ČEZ Energy Group became the 100% owner of ŠKODA JS, a traditional Czech company operating in the field of nuclear energy. With the purchase, ČEZ solved the problem of its major supplier, which several years ago became part of the Russian engineering group OMZ, controlled by Gazprombank. This put the company at risk of sanctions, which had a potential impact on securing key supplies for the ČEZ Group's nuclear power plants. The agreement was concluded in June this year with the shares temporarily held by WOOD & Company pending the antitrust authorities' transaction approval.

Green food storage: one of the largest rooftop photovoltaics in the Czech Republic launched on the roof of Billa’s central warehouse

A power plant from ČEZ ESCO will cover 22% of the consumption of the Modletice warehouse near Prague, which supplies all of the company’s supermarkets in the Czech Republic. The facility, with a total capacity of 1 MWp, will produce 1084 MWh of clean electricity per year, saving 527 tons of CO2, an amount that would be captured by 60 hectares of forest in one year. The customised orientation of the panels on the roof ensures that the power plant’s production is spread relatively evenly throughout the day.
