SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCES WITH THE INVOLVEMENT OF CSOS IN V4 IN THE DECARBONISATION PROCESS

The project is focused on the examination of the role of non-governmental organizations in the process of decarbonization of coal regions in V4 countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia). The aim of the project is to describe the best and worst practices of the individual processes for Serbia, who awaits the transformation of its energy mix, largely based on coal. The examined V4 countries have had a slightly different share of coal in their energy mix, while the largest one being in Poland and the second largest one in the Czech Republic, followed by Hungary and Slovakia. There are many similarities and differences in their takes on decarbonisation, thus providing different range of experiences.

SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCES WITH THE INVOLVEMENT OF CSOS IN V4 IN THE DECARBONISATION PROCESS

Projekt je zaměřen na zkoumání role nevládních organizací v procesu dekarbonizace uhelných regionů v zemích V4 (Česká republika, Maďarsko, Polsko, Slovensko). Cílem projektu je popsat nejlepší a nejhorší praxi jednotlivých procesů pro Srbsko, které čeká transformace jeho energetického mixu založeného z velké části na uhlí. Zkoumané země V4 mají mírně odlišný podíl uhlí ve svém energetickém mixu, přičemž největší je v Polsku a druhý největší v České republice, následuje Maďarsko a Slovensko. V jejich přístupu k dekarbonizaci existuje mnoho podobností i rozdílů, a poskytují tak různou škálu zkušeností.
