Czech Republic - Country Commercial Guide
Clean Tech
Last published date:


The Czech Clean Tech market is primarily driven by EU regulation and funding. The Czech Republic is historically an industrialized country.  Almost 38 percent of its economically active population is employed in an industrial-focused job - the highest proportion of any country in the EU. Additionally, the Czech Republic produces 50 percent of its energy using fossil fuels and 32 percent in nuclear power plants. Only 11 percent of the country’s energy is produced from renewable sources.

Given the Czech Republic’s dependence on non-renewable energy sources and heavy industry, particularly in the automotive sector, the country is expected to face considerable challenges in reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in accordance with the European Green Deal. 


As the Czech Republic will need to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050, there are opportunities for U.S. exporters of Clean Technology solutions across a range of sub-sectors, notably for manufacturers of environmental technology solutions. 

Amplified by its high industrial output, the Czech Republic suffers from water scarcity. Additionally, around 16.6 percent of Czech households are not connected to sewers and existing water treatment facilities. These facilities are planning to upgrade existing systems to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus wastewater levels in accordance with EU regulations, thus creating opportunities for U.S. producers of wastewater systems.

Due to the need to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, manufacturing plants in the Czech Republic will be required to employ more sophisticated air pollution control technologies. This is likely to create opportunities for U.S. exporters of air pollution control technologies.
