The Datteln wind project succeeds in obtaining operating support in German auction

The ČEZ Group Datteln project received operating support of 58.7 EUR/MWh in a German auction of onshore wind power plants. Depending on the correction factor actually used, this will secure it a 78 EUR/MWh tariff for 20 years from connection. This will gain ČEZ further experience in the preparation of wind projects, which it can apply in the Czech Republic. At the same time, it will support a security power supply in Europe that is independent of Russia.

Operations launched at Europe’s first new LNG terminal since the start of the war in Ukraine, and the Czech Republic is involved. The Dutch terminal will cover up to a third of the Czech Republic’s gas consumption

The first floating LNG terminal was put into operation today at Eemshaven, the Netherlands, in the presence of representatives of the Czech and Dutch governments and ČEZ. It is the first facility of its kind launched in Europe since the start of the war in Ukraine. The LNG terminal was built and commissioned in just a few months. The facility will be able to process as many as eight billion cubic metres of gas per year. Of that, three billion are earmarked for the Czech Republic – a volume equal to approximately one-third of the country’s annual consumption. The Ministry of Industry and Trade, in cooperation with ČEZ Group, had secured in advance both the lease of a portion of the new terminal’s capacity as well as the routes for transporting the gas to the Czech Republic. At this point, the first cargo of gas is on its way from the United States. The rest of the capacity of the terminal operated by the Dutch company Gasunie will be used by Shell and Engie.
