Český Krumlov is a city located in the South Bohemian Region. The city is traversed by the Vltava River and sits at an altitude of 492 meters above sea level. Historically, it served as the residence for numerous influential Czech nobles. The medieval center of the city attracts a significant number of tourists and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1992.

Emission Reduction

The city’s objective is to decrease CO2 emissions by at least 40% compared to the 2012 levels by 2030. Additionally, the city aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. To accomplish this, a comprehensive set of measures has been devised, which can directly or indirectly impact the city. Notably, the proposed measures include energy saving measures for city-owned buildings. Specifically, the Municipal Theatre will undergo an extensive renovation involving a complex renovation of the heating systems and a thermal insulation of the building. Moreover, the city plans to save energy by insulating the elementary school building, enhancing insulation in kindergartens, and, importantly, replacing outdated lighting with modern LED sources in all structures. Outside of the historic center, the city will install photovoltaic power plants on public buildings’ roofs. The combined capacity of these installations is estimated at 1400 kWp, with the largest project being the installation of photovoltaics on the bus station’s roof.

Apart from its own initiatives, the city will support energy-saving and renewable energy production measures implemented by households or local entrepreneurs. This support will be offered through grant consultancy services and the establishment of regulations for new constructions.

Adaptation Measures

Ongoing climate change presents various risks to the city. The most probable risks include increasing temperatures and their impact on residents’ health, as well as the potential for heavy rainfall and floods. Particularly vulnerable groups include children, senior citizens, and tourists. To address these risks, the plan outlines several concrete measures. These measures encompass the installation of public drinking fountains in areas with high pedestrian traffic, tree planting in commercial and industrial zones, the creation of a new park in the Nádražní predměstí district, and the integration of green (natural-based) elements within kindergartens.
