Institutions & Energy Policy
The Government Council for the Energy and Raw Materials Strategy of the Ministry of Industry and Trade is in charge of the country's energy policy.
Unipetrol (PKN Orlen 100%) refines and distributes oil through two subsidiaries, Česka Rafinerska and Benzina, which merged in 2017. In 2004, PKN Orlen (Poland) purchased the 63% stake held by the Government and acquired the remainder in October 2018.
Natural gas production is low (less than 210 mcm in 2019). Gas imports, which grew by 2.6%/year between 1994 and 2006, eroded until 2014 (-3.7%/year, on average). Gas imports have been recovering since 2014, rising by 5.5%/year until 2019 (+18% in 2019 to 9.5 bcm), despite a 10% fall in 2018.
Oil prices follow global trends: they fell between 2012 and 2016 (by 8%/year for gasoline and by 9%/year for diesel), before recovering until 2018 (+9%/year and +10%/year, respectively). In 2019, the price of gasoline dipped by 2.5%, while that of diesel remained stable.
Energy consumption per capita is 33% higher than the EU average (4.1 toe in 2019), whereas electricity consumption per capita is in line with the EU average, at around 5 600 kWh/capita in 2019.
Total energy consumption declined by an average of 1.1%/year between 2006 and 2016 to 41 Moe. After a 2.4%/year hike over 2016-2018, it decreased slightly in 2019 to 43 Mtoe (-0.7%).
Issues & Prospects
According to the State Energy Policy (2015), the share of coal and lignite in primary energy consumption should drop from 40% in 2016 to 11-17% in 2040 and that of oil from 20% to 14-17%. The share of nuclear should surge from 15% to 25-33%, as should that of renewables (from 10% to 17-22%), while the share of gas should continue to progress (from 16% to 18-25%).

In the Czechia energy market report you will find the following tables:
- Economic Indicators: Annual historical data including population, GDP growth, imports and exports, inflation rate, energy security and efficiency indicators, CO2 emissions.
- Supply Indicators: Historical data including oil and gas reserves, electric and refining capacity, energy production, power production and external trade. All are detailed by energy source
- Demand Indicators: Historical data including consumption per inhabitant, consumption trends, total consumption by energy source, final consumption by energy source and sector, and electricity consumption by sector.
- Energy Balances: Single table displaying the overall energy industry balance per annum, also graphically displayed by energy sub-segment.
- Infrastructure Projects: Covers power plant projects by energy, technology, status and operator.
The Czechia energy market data since 1990 and up to 2019 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Czechia country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.
Key Data included in the excelsheet:
