Czech Republic

A generous support scheme for solar led to very strong growth in installations in 2009-2011. In the same period Scatec Solar developed and built four utility scale solar plants in the country.

Market approach

Scatec Solar entered the Czech market in 2008 and developed and built four solar power plants in 2009 and 2010. The plants have a total capacity of 20 MW and the power is sold to the local utilities under 25 years Feed-in-Tariff arrangements.

More about this market

A generous support scheme created a strong boom in the Czech solar market in the period 2009 to 2011. As consequence the Czech government retroactively established a revenues levy on renewable energy plants, and from early 2014 removed the Feed-in-Tariff for large scale solar projects. We therefor see limited growth opportunities in this market in the near term.
