Czechia to further support agrivoltaics

The Czech Republic is stepping up its effort to support agrivoltaics, regarded as an opportunity to increase the incomes of Czech farmers and, at the same time to strengthen the country’s ambition to become energy self-sufficient.

In this regard, the Minister of the Environment Anna Hubáčková has announced a few amendments to the law on agricultural land protection to include also orchards and vineyards and to enable farmers and landowners to quickly meet the conditions of soil protection when also installing solar panels.

“This will significantly reduce the cost of the total investment for farmers and in addition, it will also subsidise photovoltaics,” commented the Minister of Agriculture Zdeněk Nekula.

The two Ministries are also jointly cooperating in fighting droughts, protecting natural reservoirs and implementing nature-based solutions. And, the Ministry of the Environment also announced the preparations for establishing two new national parks, namely the Křivoklátsko National Park and the Soutok National Park.
