The Mission “Improving the material, energy and emissions efficiency of the economy”

The mission “Improving the material, energy and emission efficiency of the economy” was selected in relation to current development trends in the field of energy and raw material resource management and taking into account the key needs of the Czech economy. The purpose of intervention in this field will be to contribute through research, development and innovation to the transformation of the Czech economy towards efficient production and use of raw materials and energy resources, optimisation of production processes and reduction of dependence on external raw material sources.

The mission to Improving the material, energy and emissions efficiency of the economy is divided into 3 sub-areas:

  • Decarbonisation aims to achieve a technological readiness of the Czech economy that by 2030, it will be possible to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 44 mt CO2 eq.
  • The aim of Decentralisation is to create the technological conditions for increasing the share of decentralised energy sources to 25% in 2030.
  • In the Circularity area, the goal is to achieve a technological level of production processes that will enable the material recovery rate to triple by 2040 compared to the 2017 levels

For each area, a Mission Objective Card was prepared, describing the basic parameters that need to be achieved to accomplish the mission. Details of the mission and the draft mission objective cards can be found in Annex 1
