CZ-7 :: Renewable energy vs. fossil fuels in the Czech Republic

Energy sector of the Czech Republic is strongly dependent on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Recent support for renewable energies, which has been heavily supported by governmental money, caused many controversies and unintended environmental consequences (e.g. coverage of agricultural land by solar panels, huge planting of energy crops by farmers etc.). Due to many scandals renewable energy have a bad reputation between public instead of their environmental benefits.
Specific research questions (following the conceptual model of INSPIRATION):
Net Impacts:
• Decentralized projects for generation of renewable energy, where energy is locally both produced and consumed should be supported.
Why: How such support could be done and simultaneously negative environmental consequences could be avoided?
Demand:
• Energy use of households and municipal wastes. Enormous energy potential of waste is nowadays overlooked.
Why: Support energy use of wastes and by means of suitable spatial targeting make this use as much as effective.
Natural Capital:
• Spatial distribution of individual types of renewable energies should be more researched and adopted to natural/social/environmental conditions to make whole system more effective as for amount of generated renewable energy and reasonable impact on its hinterland.
Why: How and to which extent current distribution of facilities for generation of renewable energies and consequent use of natural resource contribute to sustainability?
