According to Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS), the Czech Republic will have a national solution to high energy prices, which will supplement or replace the European solution. According to him, it will depend on what agreement is reached at the European level.

Fiala said this today in Hořice in Jičín, where he campaigned before the municipal elections.

On Friday, an extraordinary European Council for Energy is being held, which was convened in Brussels by the Czech Republic as the country holding the EU presidency. “On Friday, we will see what we can achieve at the European level. This will be followed by the presentation of a national solution that will supplement or replace the European one,” said the Prime Minister.

Fiala communicates with the prime ministers of other countries about the situation. “I find more and more support for reaching a European solution, which was not here a month ago. The situation in Europe is moving significantly also thanks to our activities,” he said, adding that according to the agreement at the European level, the Czechia will choose the option of a national solution.

“The goal is clear, so that citizens and companies have enough energy at affordable prices,” said Fiala.

Minister of Industry and Trade Jozef Síkela (for STAN) said today that the European Council will deal with two proposals. One envisages separating the price of gas from the price of the final power plant, which determines electricity prices. The second proposal wants to establish maximum prices for all other electricity productions except gas. At the same time, according to Síkela, the Czech Republic is continuing negotiations on solving the energy crisis at the national level.
