Change in annual greenhouse gas emissions – 1990 to 2006
2005 per capita annual greenhouse gas emissions
13.7 tonnes (without land use change, which is not substantial in the Czech Republic).
Energy used per unit of GDP (compared to USA)
Balance of energy sources, 2008
The Czech Republic is self-sufficient in coal and exports some. However, it has to import the gas and oil that it uses.
“Although gains have been made in reducing energy intensity in the industry sector, the potential for energy efficiency improvements in the buildings and transport sectors is substantial. Energy use and carbon dioxide emissions in these sectors are growing.”
Combined Heat and Power
“Combined heat and power (CHP) constitutes one third of electricity generation and over 40% of overall heat production, making the country the third largest [EU country] in CHP use after Denmark and Finland.”
Electricity generated, 2008
Electricity – supply and demand
