The cost of modernisation of domestic heating plants will reach
approximately CZK 180bn by 2030. Heating Association (TS)
chairman Mirek Topolánek stated that operators will have to replace
old coal-burning technologies with new heat sources and heat
distribution systems by 2030. Thermal power plants will mainly
switch to natural gas, solid biomass and biomethane. The projects
are financed by subsidies from the modernisation fund, in which
heating plants have CZK 87.5bn at their disposal.
