One year since the conclusion of the first agreement on energy efficiency between the Ministry of Industry and Trade and ČD Cargo

ČD Cargo was one of the first companies to establish cooperation with the Ministry of Industry and Trade in the field of increasing energy efficiency by signing a voluntary agreement on energy efficiency. In 2020, ČD Cargo achieved energy savings of 28,827 MWh (approx. 104 TJ). The joint efforts of the state, energy market players and other businesses will help increase energy efficiency without having a significant impact on final energy consumers. The Czech Republic has to save 0.8% of final energy consumption every year between 2021 and 2030 with regard to climate change and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This follows from Directive 2012/27 / EU on energy efficiency.

„I am pleased that ČD Cargo is socially responsible and joined the strategic statement as one of the first companies last year,“ says Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček adding: „I believe that the willingness to participate in sustainable energy consumption and increase energy efficiency will be reflected in other companies. After all, enter into an agreement is not difficult.“

As part of the voluntary agreement, ČD Cargo focuses, among other things, on increasing the energy efficiency of rail transport. „Two directions are key for us in savings,“ says the Chairman of the Board of Directors of ČD Cargo Ing. Tomáš Tóth and continues: „The first is gradual modernization of the vehicle fleet, where, for example, instead of vehicles with loss-making resistance control, we purchase new locomotives with lossless semiconductor power regulation, allowing the use of regenerative braking.“ Engine locomotives are also being modernized with a focus on technical and environmental parameters. The gradual upgrading of the rolling stock also applies to freight wagons, where wagons with lower driving resistances and lower noise are purchased. „The second direction is aimed at our trade policy, where we are actively striving to transfer transports from road to rail. The proof is the transport of road semi-trailers by rail, new transport of metallurgical products from Italy to the Czech Republic and Poland and a number of other business cases,“ adds Tomáš Tóth.
