Decarbonizing Europe – Czech Republic

What are Czech Republic’s plans to become more sustainable?
Find out in our project Decarbonizing Europe

The heavy reliance on brown coal makes the Czech Republic one of the most polluting countries in the EU. In 2019, 11.7 tons of greenhouse gases were emitted by every single citizen of the country – making it rank the third most polluting country in the Union. Coal generates 46 percent of the electricity used in the country, and the coal industry still plays an important role in some parts of the nation. €7 billion euros is the amount Prague is receiving from the European Commission. Energy efficiency in buildings and green energy infrastructure are some of the main projects Czechia plans to use this money for, in an effort to foster its green transition.
