Czech power utility CEZ says it has tentatively identified two preferred construction sites for small modular reactors (SMRs), in addition to the Temelín pilot location. The two sites in Detmarovice and Tušimice are at current coal-fired power plants, which are being transformed for emission-free operation. As part of its Vision 2030, CEZ Group it committed to preparing for the construction of SMRs with a total capacity of over 1,000 MWe after 2040.

A small modular reactor (SMR) could be built in the Czech Republic at the Temelín NPP as early as 2032, Daniel Beneš, the Director of the CEZ power group has said after signing a contract for the establishment of the South Bohemia Nuclear Park. South Bohemian Governor Martin Kuba, addressing an international conference, said: "We realise that nuclear energy is something that we fundamentally need in the republic. "Czech industry is not only driven by renewable sources, we are not Norway, which has unlimited water capacities and produces 95% of its energy with clean hydropower plants."

Researchers at the Czech Technical University in Prague and the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen have devised an innovative solution that uses the radioactive decay heat produced by used fuel rods to heat water. The team, led by professor Radek Skoda, has already patented this technology, named the Teplator. Skoda told Germany’s Deutsche Welle on 7 April that the Teplator’s dimensions are similar to those of research reactors already operating in Europe. However, it is simpler in terms of technology and design and “only” generates heat and not power.

A permanent repository for used fuel and waste would be best sited at the NPP, either in Dukovany, south Moravia, or Temelin, south Bohemia, Dana Drabova, chairwoman of the State Office for Nuclear Safety (SUJB), said on Czech Television (CT) on 22 October. The Czech Republic is committed to building a repository by 2065. The cost is estimated at CZK112bn ($4.6bn) and CZK 24bn has so far been set aside for the purpose. Every entity which produces waste must contribute CZK50 per megawatt-hour of generated power.
