Czech Republic will end feed-in tariff for RES in 2014

The Czech Republic’s lower house of Parliament has voted on 16 August 2013 to end support for new renewable projects as from 1 January 2014. The draft law, which needs to be approved by the Senate and signed by the president, will also extend the tax on existing PV systems installed in 2009 and 2010.

The tax, which was planned to end on 31 December 2013, will be reduced from 26% to 10% in 2014. The new law will also set a ceiling of CZK495/MWh (€1.92/kWh) on the price consumers pay as part of their electricity bill to support renewable energy development, down from a current CZK583/MWh (€2.26/kWh).
