In the Czech Republic, we have had lots of practice commenting on the expectations and tasks of new governments. This is already the fourth cabinet to govern since 2009. Each time, we expect of the new government that it will finally make use of the possibilities to increase energy efficiency, which can liberate homes from their dependence on coal from surface mines in northern Bohemia and on Russian natural gas. Even more so, however, we are waiting for a government that will return stability to investments in renewable energy sources. How can the new cabinet – composed of the Social Democrats, the new party ANO and the Christian Democrats – fare in this role?
