The National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAP) aims to achieve energy savings across multiple sectors, including those in the supply, transmission and distribution of energy as well as energy end-use. To date, four NEEAPs have been developed and approved.
First National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP-I)
The Czech Energy Efficiency Action Plan, pursuant to the Directive on energy end-use efficiency and energy services, aims to achieve energy savings in individual sectors of consumption, amounting to 9% of the average annual national consumption from 2002-06. Overall attainable energy savings amount to 19 842 GWh, divided between five sectors (Household, tertiary, industrial, transport, agriculture). Approximately 30% of savings are to be achieved in the household sector, followed by the industrial and transport sectors (24% and 23% respectively). The Action Plan categorises energy-saving measures according to fuel (solid, liquid, gas) and energy (electrical and heat) across the various sectors.
Second National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP-II)
Before NEEAP-II was drawn up, the national indicative target of final energy savings as set forth in NEEAP-I was revised. The calculation of the cumulative amount of energy savings in the years 2007 to 2016 should have been made, according to the calculation methodology provided in Directive 2006/32/EC, on the basis of actual final consumption of energy resources in the years 2002 to 2006. However, the original data on final energy consumption for the year 2006 had to be estimated at the time NEEAP-I was being prepared because the actual value, as published by the Czech Statistical Office (CSO) was not yet available. The subsequently published actual values differed from the estimates, and the targets were revised accordingly. By adjusting the reduced final fuel and energy consumption for 2006 in the light of the official CSO figures, the Czech Republic's target corresponding to 9% of average final consumption in the years 2002 to 2006 increased from 19 842 GWh to 20 309 GWh.
The NEAP II includes diverse actions and measures, which together aim to reduce energy consumption by 9.39% against an annual average use for the 2002 – 2006 period. This effort it to be shared between six sectors:
Measures provided by the Action Plan:
Third National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP-III)
The third NEEAP sets the Czech Republic’s national indicative target: 47.84 PJ (13.29 TWh) of new final energy savings by 2020. Regarding implementation of the Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency (EED), a detailed overview of policy measures to reach this target is introduced. To comply with the requirements of Article 7 of the EED, the Czech Republic has opted to implement a set of other policy measures in accordance with Article 7(9) of the EED (alternative scheme). The plan includes six Annexes: List of alternative policy measures (according to Art. 7), List of other measures and quantification of achieved energy savings, Detailed description of energy-saving measures, Progress Report to meet the national targets for energy efficiency and Building Renovation Strategy (according to Art. 4).
Fourth National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP-IV)
The fourth update of the NEEAP was prepared after the final approval of the programs financed by the European Investment and Structural Funds. Cumulative energy savings target in final consumption under art. 7 of the Directive on energy efficiency was recalculated according to the Eurostat methodology and was set at 50.67 PJ (14.08 TWh). After the assessment of the current measures of the alternative scheme an additional policy measures in household, industry, transport and agriculture sectors and on the level of local governments were added. The Czech government approved the NEEAP—IV on 16 March 2016, resolution 215/2016.
