When analyzing the energy situation within the Czech Republic, it’s clear that the country is fairly energy intensive. In terms of crude energy intensity (gross energy consumption over gross domestic product (GDP), it is the third most energy-intensive EU member country, with a 2014 energy intensity level of 256.3 kg of oil equivalent per 1,000 euros of GDP – twice the EU average.1 All this is true despite the Czech economy having undergone a major transition since the 1990s, with its level of energy intensity decreasing significantly over that time.2 However, a lot of effort needs to be invested in achieving the targets set out in line with the 2020 goal of a 20 per cent reduction of energy consumption across the EU.
