Czech Republic Power Report Q1 2015 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Dec 30 2014

Our view on the Czech power market remains largely unvaried this quarter, while concerns over the country's energy security and carbon emissions profile move to the forefront. T he future of nuclear and renewables in the country looks increasingly uncertain as the development of both sources experienced setbacks in recent quarters. With ag e ing domestic capacity scheduled to come offline over the coming two decades and EU regulations pressurising the country to lessen its dependence on coal, nuclear and renewables had appeared to be the preferred method to fill any future power gap. However, t his is now in doubt, with the country showing inclinations to maintain an important share of coal-generated electricity in the mix.

Key Trends And Developments

* Allowing for system losses (forecast at 5.83%in 2014 and expected to decrease to 5.79% by 2023), owing to new investment in the grid), power supply should continue to outweigh demand, enabling continued net exports to neighbouring states. This quarter, we expect Czech power generation to reach an 83.07TWh in 2014, and expect it will decrease by an annual average of 0.75% between 2014 and 2023, to reach 77.95TWh.
* Industry Minister Jan Mladek stated on November 27 2014 that the debate over nuclear power leans to having one new block at each of the two nuclear power plants operated by CEZ, with the possibility of two different investors taking part. However, we highlight that the question is fa from resolved as the government is still working on the new energy strategy, which should be completed by the end of 2014.
* This notwithstanding, according to reports, electricity prices in the Czech Republic are expected to decrease by around 1% for households in 2015. Consumers with multiannual fixed contracts might save more.
