About the C-Energy Planá CHP plant
C-Energy is a progressive and innovative company operating in the power and heating sector. It has invested more than CZK 2 billion in its flagship Planá nad Lužnicí CHP plant since 2012. Implementation of advanced technologies and greening measures have led to a 90% cut in harmful emissions. Today, the Planá nad Lužnicí plant is one of Central Europe’s most modern facilities, offering highly efficient combined heat and power production.
C-Energy supplies energy to the entire Tábor conurbation, provides system services to the grid, and contributes to the energy security of the Czech Republic. Its Planá nad Lužnicí CHP plant is the first in the country to completely phase out the combustion of coal, which will be entirely replaced with waste wood biomass already in 2022, thus reducing emissions by a further 91%.
The total installed capacity of the plant is over 105 MWe, including the largest battery storage facility in the Czech Republic, thanks to which C-Energy’s Planá nad Lužnicí plant is one of only a few in the country that can ensure power supply to its industrial customers even in a blackout, when the power grid fails completely.
