Tušimice Plant

When the world runs on renewables and other forms of clean energy, you will surely regret not having taken the opportunity to visit CEZ’s Tušimice lignite-fired power plant. The heat... that noise... plus the aroma of fresh CO2... an unforgettable experience to share with the grandkids!

Those of you who know our oil & gas analyst (and the best dancer on the sell side!), Jonathan Lamb, will be sold on this tour already.
