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.

EUROVIA CS Group to be driven by emissions-free power from ČEZ
The construction and maintenance of transport infrastructure in the Czech Republic will be more environmentally friendly, as EUROVIA CS Group newly becomes a user of environmentally friendly power from emissions-free sources. The representative of both companies signed a joined declaration. With the consumption of each 1 MWh of emissions-free power, the country saves 0.6 tonnes of CO2 as compared to traditional electricity from the usual electricity mix, which – given EUROVIA CS’ average annual consumption – amounts to 19,600 tonnes of CO2. EUROVIA CS Group will purchase emissions-free electricity from 1 January 2022 through to 31 December 2023, from ČEZ ESCO, a ČEZ subsidiary.
