Energon Holding

The main partner in the field of modern energy industry

Energon Holding

„Technological innovations are now starting a global energy revolution that is much more powerful and faster than what the most optimistic theories have estimated. Everything is driven forward by the so-called 4D strategy based on decarbonization, deregulation, decentralization and digitalization.

In this context, energy storage and digital life cycle management – from production and transmission to storage and consumption – will play an essential role. There will be a rapid development of modern energy worldwide. This is an opportunity for the Czech Republic, too.

Our country, even in the era of the first Czechoslovak Republic, was strong in the supply of technological units, including energy. If we grasp the current potential accurately, we have a chance to carry on the tradition and become one of the leading countries in the modern energy innovations development. At the Energon Holding, we want to support this development in collaboration with other companies that share this vision.”

General Partner in the field of Legal Services

Doucha Šikola Law Firm

„The modern energy is not just about changing the technology of energy production from fossil to renewable sources and decentralization, it is also a fundamental change in the rules of operation, laws, decrees, and codices. There are just a few fields where the law would lag behind technological developments as much as in the energy sector. We are honored to contribute, throughout cooperation with the Modern Energy Union, to make its rules clear, fair, and enforceable.“

Pavel Doucha

Partner, lawyer

Doucha Šikola Law Firm is the only Czech law firm focusing exclusively on clients involved in the energy industry and especially in the field of renewable energy. These include operators of electricity and heat production, energy traders, distribution companies, but also, for instance, banking houses financing energy projects. Pavel Doucha and Luděk Šikola, the law firm partners, have been providing legal advice to clients in this field since 2009. They believe successful legal advice in such a complex field as the energy industry, cannot be executed without the knowledge of the technical and economic aspects of business in this sector. In this respect, it benefits from cooperation with a partner consulting company DS Energy Consulting s.r.o. This way, Doucha Šikola Law Firm can provide clients with a comprehensive package of all types of consulting in the field of energy.

The company has long been one of the trailblazers of alternative fuels in the Czech Republic, and since 2006 it has been supplying intralogistics solutions based on CNG forklift truck propulsion. The technology is supplied including filling stations and typically brings its users more than 50% savings on fuel costs in comparison with conventional fuels. Since 2008, Linde Material Handling has been intensively involved in the propulsion of hydrogen-powered handling equipment (fuel cells). The company has acquired experience in this field from long-term projects, such as providing propulsion for handling equipment at the BMW production site in Leipzig or the application of fuel cell trucks in an Austrian company, DB Schenker. A unique project, Linde Energy Management, helps warehouse operators minimize energy and fuel costs for handling equipment and improve the environment within and around companies’ sites. Linde Energy Management recommends the most advantageous type of fuel regarding a specific type of operation, and at the same time regardless of current technological limits. It is because Linde trucks are supplied in variants for all basic and alternative types of fuel, such as diesel, CNG, LPG, Li -Ion batteries, Pb batteries, and fuel cells (H2). The Czech branch of Linde Material Handling is always able to recommend its customers a suitable type of fuel for handling technology that is the most advantageous in the long run.

TEDOM

Partner in the Field of Cogeneration Units

TEDOM

„We view the modern energy as the use of renewable resources, which are free of charge and decentral, in combination with batteries and CHP units serving as a flexible resource.“

Josef Jeleček

CEO, Chairman of Board of Directors of TEDOM

TEDOM a.s is a Czech engineering company which was established by Ing. Josef Jeleček in Třebíč in 1991.TEDOM is an abbreviation of the Czech words TEplo DOMova “The warmth of home”. The company originally started with one CHP unit model with an output of 22kW. Other types with higher outputs were added immediately, and in addition to natural gas units, they also started developing biogas units. Today, the company’s portfolio includes dozens of cogeneration units operating on natural gas and biogas with an electrical output from 7 kW to 10 MW. Aside from stand-alone CHP units, TEDOM also supplies complex turn-key projects that include design documents, technologies delivery, and installation of the entire energy source.

In 2010, TEDOM together with ČEZ Group founded a joint venture of ČEZ Energo where the joint company operates more than one hundred CHP units connected to a virtual power station with a total electrical output of almost 100 MW. Furthermore, TEDOM runs energy sources in the municipal waste landfills. These energy sources produce tens of thousands of megawatt-hours of green power annually. There is also an extensive service network that includes remote online monitoring of the CHP unit’s operation.

In the fall of 2016, TEDOM acquired the German company, SCHNELL, the leading supplier of CHP units for biogas plants. As a result, the number of employees in the TEDOM Group increased to 900 and the number of common references exceeded 8000 CHP units.
