Energy & Environment

Introduction

The Czech Republic is abiding by the EU strategy for sustainable development that stands for “Smarter and Cleaner Europe”. The adopted policies are supported by both the EU and national budgets and create a broad range of opportunities for investors to design, manufacture and deliver new technologies for environmental protection and energy savings for more than 700 million consumers in the European market. Technologies for reusing industrial waste in new products, increased use of renewable energy sources and support for energy savings through the introduction of new products and technologies in smart energy distribution systems are of paramount importance. The Czech Republic offers investors in these areas both technical competence and manufacturing excellence that, combined with cost effectiveness, create favourable conditions for new investments.
