The Public on Energy Policy and the So-Called European Green Deal - August/September 2023
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In the period from the the end of July to the mid of the third decade of September 2023, a block of questions devoted to energy issues was included in the regular research of Our Society. Part of the questions examined citizens' interest in the energy policy of the Czech Republic and also focused on the issue of the so-called European Green Deal from 2020.\n\nAn incomplete half of Czechs is interested in energy policy, which represents a decline in interest compared to the last survey from 2022 but it remained significantly higher in comparison to all other past surveys.\n\n35% of Czech citizens agree with the Green Deal, 49% disagree with it. At the same time, only one-sixth (17%) of Czech citizens consider the goal of the Green Deal to be achievable, a two-thirds majority think that its goal is not achievable.
People on Features and Risks of Nuclear Power - August/September 2023
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In the period from the end of July to the middle of the last decade of September 2023, a block of questions devoted to the issue of nuclear energy was included in the regular survey of programme Our Society. Two batteries of questions were included in the survey, through which citizens' opinions on certain characteristics and risks associated with the production of electricity through nuclear fission were examined on an eleven-point scale.\n\nThe majority of citizens are inclined to the opinion that nuclear energy makes it possible to ensure a stable supply of energy, makes it possible to produce energy at a low cost, contributes to measures against climate change and is environmentally friendly.\n\nThe prevailing opinion among the Czech public is that nuclear energy is one of the safest methods of energy production.\n\nThe Czech public is rather skeptical of the opinion that nuclear energy is a transitional energy production technology that will soon be surpassed.\n\nThe Czech public sees the greatest risk in connection with nuclear energy in possible misuse or damage to the nuclear power plant in a result of a terrorist attack or war.

Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In its August/Septemer 2023 survey, the Our Society series included a battery of questions on issues of nuclear energy. The survey examined public opinion about whether the proportion of nuclear energy in electricity production should increase or decrease in future, what people think about building a new unit of the Dukovany Nuclear Power Station (DNPS), whether or not they are concerned about the use of nuclear energy in the country, and whether they have confidence in the government’s decisions about the development of nuclear energy.
The Public on Energy Policy and the So-Called European Green Deal - Autumn 2022
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In its Autumn 2022 survey, the Our Society series included a battery of questions on issues of nuclear energy. The survey examined public opinion about whether the proportion of nuclear energy in electricity production should increase or decrease in future, what people think about building a new unit of the Dukovany Nuclear Power Station (DNPS), whether or not they are concerned about the use of nuclear energy in the country, and whether they have confidence in the government’s decisions about the development of nuclear energy. A newly included question also asked whether citizens know how the Czech state manages nuclear waste.

The public on the transition to cleaner energy - autumn 2022
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In the period from the first half of September to the beginning of November 2022, a block of questions devoted to energy issues was included in the regular research of Our Society. Part of the questions focused on the transition of the energy industry to cleaner, more environmentally friendly energy sources in the production of heat and electricity. The survey specifically investigated how citizens evaluate the frugality of various energy sources in terms of the impact of their use on the environment, how they perceive the success or failure of the transition to cleaner sources in the Czech Republic, whether, in their opinion, the state should support the use of renewable energy sources, how it is important for them, whether the electricity they consume in their household comes from renewable sources, and whether they use or plan to use renewable sources for the production of heat or electricity, either in a community, such as multiple households within an apartment building, municipality or part of it , or independently in your own household.\nPeople perceive solar radiation, water currents and wind blowing as the most environmentally friendly sources of electricity production, while burning coal is considered the least environmentally friendly.\n36% of Czech citizens consider the transition to cleaner energy successful, 44% consider it unsuccessful.\nA large majority (93%) of the Czech public is inclined to the opinion that the state should support the use of renewable energy sources, but only two fifths (41%) attach importance to whether the electricity in their household is from renewable sources.\nWithin a certain community, 4% of citizens use renewable sources for heat production, and 4% use them individually in their household for heat production. Another 5% plan it as part of a community and 8% plan it individually in their household.\n6% of citizens use electricity from renewable sources as part of a community, and 6% use it individually in their household, 8% and 11% of others have plans to do so.\nOverall, about three-fifths of respondents (59%) said that neither in the community nor individually do they use and do not plan to use renewable sources to generate electricity or heat.
The public on energy management - autumn 2022
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In the period from the first half of September to the beginning of November 2022, a block of questions devoted to energy issues was included in the regular research of Our Society. Part of the questions focused on the issue of energy management. The survey specifically investigated how the households of the respondents manage to cover the costs of electricity, fuel and water consumption, whether they have concerns regarding the provision of heating in the Czech Republic, what, in their opinion, are the possibilities of reducing energy consumption in their household and whether the development of the energy market will make their household to reduce consumption.\nAlmost half (47%) of the respondents' households find it difficult to cover the costs of electricity consumption, the share of those who find it difficult to cover the costs of natural gas or solid fuels was around two fifths of the households that use them (43% for natural gas, 39% for solid fuels).\nAccording to respondents, three out of ten households find it difficult to cover the costs of water consumption.\nCompared to 2018, the situation with paying the costs of electricity, fuel and water consumption worsened, most significantly in the case of electricity consumption, where the share of those who have difficulty paying these costs increased from 26% to 47%.\nDifficulties in covering the costs of electricity, fuel and water consumption are strongly dependent on the income situation and standard of living of the household, but also on its composition, with households in which people live alone having a relatively worse situation.\nThree quarters (74%) of Czechs expressed concern about the provision of heating in the Czech Republic.\nOnly 7% of respondents think that there are big opportunities to reduce energy consumption in their home, 30% see none and 60% see only small ones.\nAt the same time, three-quarters (75%) of Czechs thought that the development of the energy market would force them to reduce consumption, and a quarter (25%) thought that significantly.

Czech public opinion on issues of radioactive waste and deep geological repository – July 2021
Červenka, Jan ; Ďurďovič, Martin
In its July 2021 survey, the Our Society series included a battery of questions on issues of the energy system, with a detailed focus on nuclear energy and some aspects of handling radioactive waste. The study inquired how well informed about nuclear waste citizens themselves feel, how reliable they consider different sources of information on nuclear safety, how they think spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste are currently being handled in the country, how today’s society should respond to the problem of radioactive waste, and how they view different issues of building a deep geological repository of radioactive waste. Only one in five Czech citizens consider themselves well informed about matters of radioactive waste. In matters of nuclear safety, the public considers scientists and experts the most reliable; relatively high levels of reliability are also attached to the State Office for Nuclear Safety and, to a lesser extent, “the government authority concerned with the disposal of radioactive waste”. Three in five citizens believe that today’s society should actively address the problem of radioactive waste. Half of the public find a deep geological repository to be the safest way of addressing the problem of radioactive waste. More than three in four citizens believe that municipalities should have the right to refuse the building of a deep geological repository in their territory.
