Germany's and the UK's Energy Policy in the Context of Their Climate Pledges
Šulcová, Kristýna ; Hák, Tomáš (advisor) ; Beranovský, Jiří (referee)
The main focus of the present diploma thesis are the energy policies of Germany and the United Kingdom. In the thesis, a comparative analysis of both countries' policies is carried out, focusing on their progress towards a low carbon energy sector and on the fullfillment of their respective climate pledges, such as the share of renewable sources of electricity and total emissions. The scope of the thesis is narrowed down to include above all the electricity sector and the technologies that help to reduce the energy intensity of the energy sector. The central part of the text is descriptive, comparing both the general outlines of the respective policies and the policy instruments used. The thesis largely follows the logic of comparing the different approaches to the main energy sources (nuclear, renewable, natural gas) and in part also deals with other important phenomena: CCS and EU ETS. The choice of relevant indicators and the evaluation of trends is an integral part of the thesis. The secondary goal is to attempt an evaluation of the individual instruments and policies. Among the conclusions, the following stands out: 1/ the relative success of the German nuclear phaseout as concerns supply security and the simultaneous risks it brings concerning the total emissions from energy; 2/ the relative...
Multilevel governance in the field of renewable energy: The Case of Brittany
Kasalová, Michaela ; Tomalová, Eliška (advisor) ; Mejstřík, Martin (referee)
The master's thesis Multi-level governance in the field of renewable energy: the case of Brittany focuses on the development of renewable energies in the French region of Brittany. The theoretical approach is based on the distinction of two types of multi-level governance developer by Hooghe and Marks. The thesis aims to investigate whether these two types can be found in the case of Brittany. Changes in the position of the region on the energy field caused by the process of energy transition are also addressed. The development of energy policy at the European level is described since it has decisive influence on the renewable energy sources. The EU set binding targets through its Climate and Energy Package which are then transposed to the national level. The thesis continues by investigating the role of the French regions in the field of renewable energy and comes to the conclusion that the regions have been empowered through the process of energy transition. Regions are actively involved in the development of renewable energy as is shown in the case of Brittany; nevertheless, they are still dependent on the decisions taken at the national level.

Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In the May survey the Public Opinion Research Centre focused on the issue of energetics. Regular set of questions related to this matter was amended with several questions concerning so-called "Energiewende", i.e. energy transition in neighboring Germany.
Public on Energy Policy and Future of Energy Production - May 2017
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In May 2017 the survey of the Public Opinion Research Centre incorporated a regular set of questions focused on the theme of energy that was expanded by some special questions. The survey investigated interest in energy policy of the Czech Republic and its evaluation by citizens. It also focused on attitudes to matters like breaking of limitation on surface mining of lignite in Nothern Bohemia, financial favouring of exploitation of renewable resources of energy, possibility of production of electricity and heat in smaller local plants, environmental friendliness of atomic energy, or necessity of modernisation of Czech coal power plants with intention to prolong their lifespan.
The Role of Visegrad Group in the Energy policy of the EU
Ostříž, Matyáš ; Němcová, Ingeborg (advisor) ; Straková, Eliška (referee)
This thesis focuses on energy self-sufficiency of Visegrad countries in the Energy policy of the EU and their dependance on the main suppliers of energy sources, mainly Russian Federation, further more on the role and importance of the Visegrad Group in the energy policy of EU and their energy security.
"New" Energy policy of European Union
Bartoň, Lukáš ; Němcová, Ingeborg (advisor) ; Bič, Josef (referee)
This master thesis is focused on energy policy of European Union that with arrival of new president of European Commission Jean-Clause Juncker in fall 2014 gains new dynamics. Its objective is critically evaluate ability of new energy policy in shape of Energy Union overcome difficulties that previous energy policy struggled with during realization of internal energy market.
Solar energy support in the Czech Republic in 2006-2016
Štěch, Martin ; Lukášová, Tereza (advisor) ; Maule, Petr (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to analyze the efficiency of solar energy support in the Czech Republic in 2006-2016. The paper shows the progressive development of photovoltaics, including economic and political impacts. Furthermore, the thesis deals with the position of the Czech Republic in the Europe 2020 program in terms of increasing the representation of renewable resources. The aim of the thesis is to find out whether there are negative externalities in supporting solar energy. In the theoretical part, the work is first devoted to the Czech Republic's energy sector, including renewable resources, energy policy and then to the development of the photovoltaic system. The practical part evaluates the efficiency of solar energy support in the Czech Republic in the chosen period. Support for solar energy seems to be economically inefficient both for the construction of large or small systems. The next part shows that the Czech Republic fulfills the criteria set by Europe 2020. The benefit of the thesis is the evaluation that solar energy support is not effective and causes negative externalities.
The role of Azerbaijan in the context of EU energy security
Aliyev, Abdul ; Petříček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kučerová, Irah (referee)
The thesis deals with the issue of energy security in the European Union, and the role played by Azerbaijan in the provision of the EU's energy independence and long-term stability. The author investigates the current issues of the European Union's energy policy, and the main threats impairing the EU's energy independence. Countries of the Caspian Basin, and particularly Azerbaijan, are investigated as the main alternative suppliers of energy resources for the European Union to increase its energy security. The author justifies and forecasts the future development of the EU-Azerbaijani relations in the energy sector taking into account the current policies implemented by the European Union in the field of energy security.
The influence of institutions on the United Kingdom's climate policy
Stanová, Natália ; Weiss, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kasáková, Zuzana (referee)
The thesis analyses the state of the United Kingdom's climate policies and it particularly focuses on the question, how these policies are determined by its institutional system, that is majoritarian democracy. Theoretically majoritarian democracies generally have a weaker record in the environmental policy and the thesis aims to research, if and how the features of majoritarian democracies in reality influence the policy outcomes. The thesis focuses on the two party system, that often produces adversary and inconsistent politics and the pluralist system of the interest groups that tends to give better possibilities to the economically powerful actors such as business and energy groups. The base for the analysis will be the climate policies during the last twenty years and the performance and general discours of two main governing parties. Thesis also takes a closer look on the cases of Climate Change Act and Energy Act 2015 and their ability of the interest groups to achieve their goals. The thesis concludes that the combination of the institutional system with the low salience of the topic for the main parties poses significant obstacles and limitations to an active and progressive climate politics.
Discussion of socio-geographic aspects of renewable energy sources in Czechia
Görcs, Jan ; Hána, David (advisor) ; Pulec, Jan (referee)
Discussion of socio-geographic aspects of renewable energy sources in Czechia Abstract Modern society is completely dependent on electricity supplies in every aspect of life and the economy. The task of every developed country is protection and ensuring sufficient energy in the required quality. Otherwise, the lack or interruption of supply may paralyze the country's life and economy. The current energy problem lies on the fact that it is based on non-renewable energy sources with limited quantity. In addition, they have a negative impact on the environment. Renewable energy sources also provide limited solutions to the situation. This bachelor's thesis therefore analyses the assumptions, possibilities and potential of the development of renewable sources in Czech electricity, in relation to the energy position, environment, electricity, society and economy. The aim of the thesis is critical evaluation of the pros and cons of the implementation of alternative energy sources in the energy mix. Key words: renewable energy sources, alternative sources of energy, energy mix, solar energy, wind energy, water energy
