Major energy saving project is launched: The Thomayer University Hospital will save over CZK 7 million annually on energy costs and 2,500 tons of CO2 emissions

 The EPC project will take place in 20 buildings; it is part of the hospital’s modernisation.

 It is the largest EPC project implemented at university hospitals in the Czech Republic, and during full operation.

 Guaranteed annual energy savings of CZK 7.1 million at 2021 prices and 2,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Savings will be even higher in 2022 due to rising energy prices.

 The hospital will reduce gas and electricity consumption by at least 30%.

 The investment will total almost CZK 365 million (excl. VAT), of which the structural cost-saving measures account for CZK 318 million and CZK 47 million will be spent on modern energy-saving technologies.

 The EU subsidy amounts to 45% of the expenditure under the OP EN and 50% will be covered from the state budget. Other costs will be paid from the hospital’s budget.

The Thomayer University Hospital has taken off on a more than one-year modernisation marathon, which includes this year’s major energy saving project in the Czech Republic. Once finished, patients and staff will see a significant improvement in indoor comfort, and the facility will significantly reduce the energy intensity of its operations: over 5 years, it will save 18 GWh of natural gas and 10 GWh of electricity. The project is being implemented via the energy performance contracting (EPC) method, meaning that the hospital’s savings are guaranteed directly in the contract. The project is being implemented by a consortium comprising METROSTAV DIZ, ENESA from the ČEZ ESCO Holding and METROSTAV.

LEADERS OF E-MOBILITY IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC HAVE ESTABLISHED THE ELECTROMOBILITY PLATFORM

Electromobility is developing rapidly, and it is necessary to actively grasp all the opportunities it offers. The growing need for conceptual development in this area has led major industry players to establish the Electromobile Platform. The founding members are ČEZ, ŠKODA AUTO, PRE, E.ON, and the academic sector is represented by ČVUT.

CEZ is involved in the construction of one of the world’s largest particle accelerators

• FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) is an international particle accelerator project for research into atomic nuclei and antiprotons, located near Darmstadt, Germany

• Two Elevion Group companies – HERMOS and ETS – succeeded in the prestigious supplier tenders

• When completed, FAIR will be one of the largest accelerators in the world, to be used by 3,000 scientists from more than 50 countries.

• FAIR also has a Czech footprint – the Czech Republic is FAIR Aspirant Partner and several of its large science organizations contribute to the project

• Elevion Group has almost doubled its turnover since ČEZ’s entry

When completed, FAIR will be one of the largest accelerators in the world: a total of 3.5 km of tunnels are planned and eight acceleration and storage rings. The system can accelerate particles of all chemical elements, from hydrogen to uranium, and antiprotons to nearly the speed of light, and simulate their collision with other atomic nuclei. Scientists hope the facility, which has at its heart an underground ring accelerator with a circumference of 1,100 metres, will generate particle beams of previously unparalleled intensity and quality. Here, scientists want to gain new insights for the main scientific questions: How did the universe evolve? How do chemical elements form? How does matter behave under extreme conditions? Why does a person weigh 70 kilograms when all the elementary particles that make up his atoms together are barely 700 grams? HERMOS is responsible for the delivery, installation, and commissioning of building and process automation, hardware and software engineering, as well as the installation of distribution boards. Efficient Technical Solutions GmbH (ETS), in the ARGE RLT FAIR consortium (together with Calvias Gebäudetechnik GmbH), was awarded a major contract by FAIR for a project in the demanding field of ventilation and air conditioning technology. Both companies work under the umbrella of ČEZ.
