Revise state energy concept, invites Chamber of renewable


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - The Chamber of renewable energy sources (RES) calls on the Government to recast the National Energy Policy (NEP), because its form based primarily on the use of nuclear energy and fossil fuels is absurd, and recalls the building plans of the past. On Tuesday, it said the chairman of the Chamber of RES Martin Bursik.

"Energy plans to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIT) lead the Czech Republic to a socialist tomorrow. Idea of ??endless growth in consumption, which will cover the burning of fossil fuels and nuclear fission is absurd. Urge the government to recast the concept and offer cooperation," said Bursik.

Concept should be discussed on Wednesday the government of Petr Necas (ODS), and advocates of renewable resources and ecological activists plan prior to the meeting at the building of the Government protests.

Members of the chamber do not like that the government does not work with SEC variant scenario. This is very unusual Bursik, because in the past the government at least tried to appear to choose from multiple scenarios. The only option when there is a number of objections.

Chamber RES criticizes decision to build more nuclear reactors, as does the current market price of electricity economic sense. Currently, according to them, is not the core of the electricity market competitive. Also criticized is the lack of analysis that compared the costs of building new nuclear reactors and investments in energy savings and renewable sources.

According to the Executive Director of the Czech Photovoltaic Industry Association CZEPHO Susan Musilová current government, however, has no great interest in the facts about renewable energy sources, and does not consider it sufficient importance in the future.While advanced economies counted in 2040 with a share of approximately 60 per cent of energy from renewable sources, the Czech Ministry proposes to cap at 15 percent. Representatives of renewable complained they did not get to participate in the preparation of SEC.

Completely unheard Bursik is also a fact that the SEC has a proposal to stop the development of renewable energy sources. "We are the only country where the ministry stops promoting renewable energy sources. It is also against the European Directive," Bursik said the fact that so threatened investigation by the European Commission. The real motivation for efforts to stop the development of renewable energy sources it believes competition as CEZ is not interested in venturing to the market other manufacturers.

Stop Moreover, should come three months after the new Act on the supported sources. SEC also does not by members of the chamber into account the development of renewable energy technologies that will lead to the cheapening. They suggest that, will be within four to ten years, renewable resources are fully competitive, but at that time will have long decided on other coal-fired and nuclear power plants.

Criticism earned him the plan of retreat from coal, as the Minister of Industry Martin Kuba (ODS), which in the chamber comes late and is inconsistent. They do not like that the Ministry of Trade and Industry allowed a recovery program for coal-fired power plants, CEZ and considers the central district heating based on coal even a "competitive advantage".

Chamber of renewable energy unites professional associations representing the production of electricity from small hydro, wind and solar power and geothermal power and biomass. It represents so approximately 15,000 people employed in the energy sector.
