The largest photovoltaic power plant in the centre of Prague is now in operation and will cover 10% of the annual electricity consumption of the Prague Congress Centre
The new photovoltaic power plant on the roof of the Prague Congress Centre has begun supplying electricity. With its 2 080 solar panels, this emissions-free electricity source will cover 10% of the annual consumption of the Prague Congress Centre and thus provide estimated annual energy savings of CZK 5.5 million. The plant, as large as a football pitch, is a complement to one of the largest energy-saving projects in the Czech Republic implemented at PCC by ENESA from ČEZ ESCO.

ČEZ Distribuce connected a record 27,628 photovoltaic power plants with an installed capacity of 298 MW to the grid in the first half of this year
ČEZ Distribuce received 35,500 applications to connect power plants and connected 27,628 photovoltaic power plants with an installed capacity of 298 MW to the grid in the last six months. The vast majority of the applications were for rooftop installations on single-family homes, with about 95 percent of the applications being for low-voltage micro plants of up to 10 kW. In comparison, ČEZ Distribuce power engineers connected 21,325 photovoltaic power plants with an installed capacity of 188 MW to the grid over the whole of last year. A total of 80,364 photovoltaic power plants with an installed capacity of 1,583 MW are currently connected to the ČEZ Distribuce grid. This year, ČEZ Distribuce will invest CZK 6.5 billion in necessary modifications to the distribution system resulting from applications to connect renewable sources.

ČEZ Prodej has increased photovoltaic installations by more than 50 percent this year. Customers can now buy their PPP earlier, with a new battery and only a minimal upfront deposit
The market for rooftop photovoltaics in households is again growing this year. By the end of May, ČEZ Prodej had installed 50 percent more photovoltaic power plants than in the same period last year. After a series of bad experiences with unreliable PPP suppliers, customers are becoming more cautious and prefer to pay only minimal upfront deposits for installations. ČEZ Prodej is complying with client demands and now requires only a 10% deposit when signing a contract. ČEZ Prodej and the manufacturer OIG Power have together also introduced the new ČEZ Battery Box Queen hybrid battery system.

ČEZ solar power plants saved 17,000 tonnes of coal this year, and 1.4 million tonnes in total
*3 May is International Sun Day
*ČEZ Group has been operating solar power plants continuously for almost a quarter of a century
*Their manufacture means 18,000 tonnes of CO2 were not emitted into the air this year
*New solar parks with capacities of thousands of MW will be built in the coming months and years
*Roof installations from ČEZ Prodej and ČEZ ESCO also help protect the environment Photovoltaic power plants operated by ČEZ Group in the Czech Republic produced 18.7 million kWh of emission-free electricity in the first quarter of this year. This saved 17,000 tonnes of coal and prevented the release of more than 18,000 tonnes of CO2 into the air. Since 2009, ČEZ photovoltaics have saved 1.4 million tonnes of coal, while 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 have not been emitted into the air thanks to their emission-free generation. These are the impacts that would be required to generate the same amount of energy in conventional power plants.
