    Unipetrol owns the country's two most important oil refineries (Litvínov with a capacity of 5.4 Mt/year and Kralupy with a capacity of ...

  • Energy Supply


    The country has important coal and lignite resources, mainly located in the northern part of the Boheme. Gas and oil reserves are limited (3.3 bcm and 2.5 Mt). The hydroelectricity potential is about 13 TWh.

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices soared between 2000 and 2013 for both industrial customers (+7%/year) and households (+8%/year), before falling in 2014 (-17% on average). Industrial tariffs continued to decline until 2017 (-5.3%/year) and then rose by 8.7%/year until 2019, whereas residential tariffs have increased by 4.7%/year since 2014. In particular, prices rose by more than 10% in 2019. The share ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is 33% higher than the EU average (4.1 toe in 2019), whereas electricity consumption per capita is in line with the EU average, at around 5 600 kWh/capita in 2019.

    Total energy consumption declined by an average of 1.1%/year between 2006 and 2016 to 41 Moe. After a 2.4%/year hike over 2016-2018, it decreased slightly in 2019 to 43 Mtoe ...
