Excluding Solar PV From Czech Renewables Auctions an Expensive Mistake, Warns Solar Association

Renewable Energy - Thu, 2018-11-29 08:44
The Czech Solar Association is sounding the alarm about planned legislation that would exclude solar PV projects being entered into future Renewable Energy Auctions. The Czech Ministry for Industry and Trade has recently submitted an amendment proposal to the law which explicitly bars solar energy from future auctions. If passed in its current version (Act. No. 165/2012 Coll., on promoted energy sources) the law would lead the Czech Republic down a needlessly expensive path, warns the Solar Association. Solar energy has proven the cheapest renewable form of energy in countless solar auctions in surrounding countries.
