Overview

CEZ Group is one of the leading economic entities in the Czech Republic, with activities in Western, Central, and South-eastern Europe. CEZ business encompasses the entire electricity value chain, from coal mining, through generation, distribution, trading, and sale of electricity and heat to the trading and sale of natural gas. CEZ Group is one of the 10 largest energy companies in Europe, with more than 7 million customers and almost 32,000 employees.

“While CEZ Group retains its leadership in the traditional energy industry, we continuously adapt to the new challenges of the 21st century, developing innovations to address increasing energy needs and contribute to a higher quality of life.

Therefore, becoming an active member in the emerging eMobility market was a logical step for us,” says Tomáš Chmelík, Head of the eMobility Department.

CEZ eMobility project

For a company previously not involved in eMobility but which has had long-term success with energy-related assets, establishing an EV charging infrastructure was a logical entry point. CEZ recognized very quickly that operating a nationwide network of EV charging stations should be the center of their eMobility business activities and a great starting point for further expansion within the eMobility value chain.

“Once we learned how to develop the charging network, we could address the growing market. We put our efforts toward expanding our network in terms of number of chargers and locations and available power as well. With the increase in street-based charging stations, it became obvious that our fast-growing network must be operated on a professional basis, fulfilling our customers’ needs and expectations and providing necessary tools for effective management from the CPO point of view.” Mr. Chmelík adds.
