|Description||The new State Energy Policy approved by the Government in March 2004 has as one of its highest priorities the increased use of renewables and it sets measures to promote this aim. The State Energy Policy set targets of 15-16% contribution to TPES from renewables sources to be achieved by 2030 and 17% for the share of renewables in electricity consumption. The Policy envisions that biomass will play the most important role in the growth of renewables. It contains incentives and measures to be used for the promotion of renewables as described in the legal and policy acts above.
The State Energy Policy will be updated in 2010, in line with amendments to the Czech Republic's Climate Protection Policy, so that these work together in a harmonised manner.
