Josefína Kablíková, personality of Vrchlabí in the 19th century
Limberská, Jana ; Vlnas, Vít (advisor) ; Louda, Jiří (referee)
In my Diploma thesis I wanted to explore a theme which is close to my region. I decided to write about Josefina Kablíková, a modern and progressive woman of the 19th century. Josefina was an emancipated woman with a very intriguing life story. She was one of a few women botanists of her period. At first, I will present her own biography and a biography of her husband, Vojtěch Kablík. Vrchlabí in the 19th century and its specification is described. The following chapter is devoted to Josefina Kablíková as a botanist. Her botanical research far surpassed the region of Krkonoše. She became famous for her gathering of the Krkonoše flora. Even several botanical species are named after her. Another section illustrates the scientific research of Vojtěch Kablík, a pharmacist and a chemist in Vrchlabí. The last section concerns the Mánes family, who were frequent guests in the house of Kablíkovi. A large number of Mánes's drawings, paintings and portraits came into existence depicting Vrchlabí, its surroundings and Kablíkovi themselves. The aim of this Diploma thesis is to explain significance as well as the life story of the Kablíkovi couple in the context of the period and the region.
Aplikace nástrojů hospodářské politiky v oblasti managementu přírodních zdrojů se zvláštním zaměřením na koncept ekosystémových služeb
Louda, Jiří ; Jílková, Jiřina (advisor) ; Geuss, Erik (referee) ; van Koten, Silvester (referee)
The dissertation deals with application of economic approaches and instruments in natural resource management. The paper puts a special emphasis on the developing concept of ecosystem services (mainly abroad) and its application in the Czech Republic's context. The objective of the thesis is to cultivate academic discussion of the importance of methods employed in environmental economics for application of economic policy tools in natural resource management in the Czech Republic's context and, among other things, to clarify whether (and if so, how) the concept of ecosystem services may contribute to the formulation of these tools. The paper also discusses possible limitations of using purely quantitative econometric methods in environmental policy. The dissertation is designed as a cumulative paper. The results of five scholarly articles presented document that application of economic approaches (such as valuation of environmental goods and services) may contribute to efficient meeting of environmental policy goals and that the ecosystem service concept brings new capabilities for application of economic theories in practical natural resource management. One of the new instruments grounded in this concept is the payments for ecosystem services, increasingly implemented abroad. However, the research results also point out the fact that isolated application of outcomes from quantitative environmental goods and services/ecosystems assessment methods has its limitations and may lead to design of measures and tools that will not have the desired effect. The recommendation is therefore to combine outcomes from quantitative methods with qualitative approaches (such as institutional analysis or stakeholder analysis).

Economic analysis of influence of weather extremes on working and return on investment of small hydropower plants in the Czech republic betwen 2000-2015
Pavlík, Vladimír ; Macháč, Jan (advisor) ; Louda, Jiří (referee)
Nowadays, investments to small hydroelectric power stations are still highly profitable. Return on investment of a small hydroelectric power station is frequently half the period guaranteed by the state or by energy regulatory authority (Energy Regulatory Office, ERO). There is an information asymmetry among the state, as the entity that providing a subsidy, and operator of a small hydroelectric power station. These power station have constantly great potential. However, the risk of extreme hydrological fluctuations caused by floods or drought is discussed more thoroughly. Consequently, these fluctuations might harm the return on investment. The aim of this thesis is to determine to what extent hydrological extremes will affect the return on investment...
Analysis of the institutional framework for management of selected ecosystems in the Eastern Ore Mountains
Kratochvíl, Martin ; Louda, Jiří (advisor) ; Osersová, Marta (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to analyze and calculate the economic value of selected ecosystem services in the Eastern Ore Mountains and then analyze together with quantitative research, which was held simultaneously with the data collection survey. Selected ecosystems are typical for the Eastern Ore Mountains and provide recreational and aesthetic function. Contingent valuation method and method of choice experiment are used to calculate the economic value. The analysis of qualitative research is carried out by institutional analysis. Contingent valuation method is used to determine the willingness to pay for preserving the aesthetic function of mountain meadows in the Eastern Ore Mountains. Quantifying the economic value together with qualitative research may help to define tools for maintenance management of ecosystems that help to protect, maintain or restore ecosystem. Some methods of evaluation of environmental goods and institutional analysis are described in the theoretical section. The practical part is focused on the results of a questionnaire survey with a qualitative interpretation of the results.

The effect of the entry of private open-access operators on the performance of railways
Turek, Tomáš ; Vejchodská, Eliška (advisor) ; Louda, Jiří (referee)
This thesis aspires to contribute to the discussion about economic justification of current process of railway liberalisation in European Union and specifically in Czech Republic. We focus on the method of vertical separation and open access, where governments keep control over the infrastructure and its development and individual train operators compete on-track. The first section contains a summary of progress of the reform and its historical context across Europe and a review of various methods of its economic evaluation. Based on that, the next section presents a partial equilibrium econometric model applied on the route between Prague and Ostrava. Simulations are run to explore different market settings, infrastructure investment possibilities and potential tolls imposed on individual road transportation. We conclude that liberalisation followed by entry of competing railway undertakings, as well as a rational attitude of the government towards long-term infrastructure investments, are crucial for future competitiveness of railways.
Incentives leading companies to certification of ISO 14001
Polášek, Petr ; Vejchodská, Eliška (advisor) ; Louda, Jiří (referee)
Aim of the thesis is to define, characterize, structure and analyse incentives that lead firms to undergo and keep certification of the voluntary environmental standard ISO 14001. Following hypothesis was formulated in line with chosen aim: firms certify themselves with ISO 14001 mainly due to necessity of implementation of environmental elements to corporate governance in line with sustainable development. Outcome of the retrievel part of the thesis is to clearly define and well structure incentives that lead firms to certification. Subject matter experts from different certified companies assign to these incentives scales using staistical pairwise comparisons called Fuller's triangle. Based on the scales and order is confirmed or denied formulated hypothesis.
Compensatory market mechanisms in the sphere of conservation of species diversity and their potential use in the Czech Republic
Martíšková, Kateřina ; Louda, Jiří (advisor) ; Macháč, Jan (referee)
Benefits that mankind obtains in connection with existence of the well-functioning ecosystems and biodiversity, are called ecosystem services. Although biodiversity is not an ecosystem service in itself, however it is one of the basic prerequisites for their function. The importance of this topic for society, directly depends on the importance of ecosystem services as a source of direct or indirect benefits that impact the well-being of the human population. The aim of the application of market mechanisms on this issue is to find the optimal level of environmental protection and human development, together with optimization of the allocation environmental goods. These market mechanisms are used by many countries around the world. The thesis analyzes several cases of use of compensatory market mechanisms, with a closer focus on the Australia, the Britain and the France. Costs and benefits of the system are recognized, together with the configuration of the operation in the various states. This thesis also provides views on the territorial structure of the Czech Republic, the value of their ecosystem services and they are also presented methods of biodiversity conservation on the basis of which the possibility of establishing a market-besed systém of biodiversity conservation in the Czech Republic has been discussed. Application of market mechanisms could bring a certain dynamism to the protection of biodiversity in the Czech Republic, which is currently provided by the system of national parks and other specially protected areas, which can act as barriers to economic development. On the contrary, the market system will allow the use of the landscape in places with the highest demand through the application of the price mechanism. However, due to administrative costs of this system so far, it seems that the application of biodiversity conservation is rather unlikely in the Czech Republic.
Potential development of small solar power plants in the terms for ending state aid
Bartošová, Michaela ; Louda, Jiří (advisor) ; Hladík, Miroslav (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to assess the development potential of small solar power plants under the condition of the zero state aid. Work introduces the topic of the development of solar energy in the Czech Republic and the related theory of regulation and the legislative framework of the European Union and the Czech Republic in relation to renewable energy. The case study analyses in detail various aspects of investments in small solar power plants in addition to the analysis of significant legislative changes backed by three scenarios in the area of solar energy. The last part of the study discusses the development potential of investments in solar power plants for zero state aid, based on the assumption that these investments will only be in process in order to meet the electricity consumption needs of the owners.
