In 2008, electricity production from wind turbines in the Czech Republic surpassed that of biogas plants for the first time (245 vs. 214 GWh). Last year`s report of the `Pačes commission` estimated that an installed capacity of 2,750 MW of wind turbines was possible in the Czech Republic. According to the Czech Society for Wind Energy, as of June 1, 2009, there were 128 wind turbines in operation with an installed capacity of 174 MW, which represents a mere 6% of this potential. Act No. 180/2005 Coll. on the support of the utilisation of renewable energy sources and the price decision of the Energy Regulatory Office guarantee a feed-in tariff (about 8.6 ct/kWh in 2010) for 15 years and a return on investment within 15 years. Wind energy therefore represents an interesting market for investors. In the EU and worldwide, the utilisation of wind energy ranks among the fastest growing sectors of industry. According to the European Wind Energy Association, 43% of all new electricity generating capacity built in the European Union last year was wind energy, exceeding all other technologies including gas, coal and nuclear power.

In the Czech Republic, however, wind energy utilisation faces administrative barriers in the construction permit procedure. One of the results is that the Czech Republic will not meet its indicative target of 8% electricity form renewable sources next year. What will the new Directive 2009/28/EC with a binding target of 13% energy from renewables by 2020 bring? What to expect from the update of the state energy policy?

The annual conference sets out to answer these and many other questions. What will the support (feed-in tariffs and green bonuses) look like next year? What are the experiences with the grid connection of wind turbines? The reservation of grid capacity? Can we expect a change in attitude of the regional governments and the Ministry of Environment? How to help the development of the field?
