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.

The Tušimice battery tested well
A sudden drop in power frequency in the grid requires back-up sources capable of restoring the balance within 30 seconds. In their BAART project, ČEZ and ČEPS tested the connection of a high-capacity battery system for providing power balance services, in particular automatic frequency regulation. The first 16 scenarios tested simulated actual operational situations and conditions, including up to 37 activations of automatic charging/draining of the battery store per week – that is the balance of the battery located at the Tušimice Power Plant grounds. During the one-year test, its reliability and ability to quickly respond to frequency deviations was proven.

ČEZ power plants saved 67 million cubic meters of surface water last year, reducing the usage of the valuable liquid by more than 14% y/y
In recent years, ČEZ has repeatedly achieved major savings of the valuable liquid. Last year, it reduced its consumption of surface water in its nuclear power plants by nearly 7% and in its traditional power plants by 16.5%.
