Have national governments given too much freedom to the market? At what cost have we cut ourselves off from Russian natural gas? Is it true that electricity is a commodity like any other, or is it already a public good? Is there such a thing as a human right to energy supply? Are we prepared for winter? Have expectations regarding the extraordinary war tax been met, and are efforts to protect the most vulnerable from the effects of the energy crisis succeeding?

- Security and reliability of energy supply
- Protecting customers from price spikes
SUSTAINABLE ENERGY STRATEGY
The crisis has exposed our vulnerability and the fact that Europe is running out of reliable energy sources. Should the conclusions and recommendations of the Coal Commission be changed in the light of the new situation? On what sources should we build the Czech heating and electricity sector? Will we be ever able to secure sufficient resources of the required quality for the needs of the national economy? The discussions covered, among other things, the reasons why the objectives of the updated SEC may not be achieved.

NEW MARKET DESIGN AND TOOLS FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF STATE ENERGY POLICY
How to act in the context of the fact that the state does not control the energy industry but creates the conditions for its functioning. What is the biggest obstacle to the implementation of PPAs in the Czech Republic? What is your opinion on mandatory CfDs? Is it an appropriate form of capacity mechanism needed to ensure generation adequacy in the Czech Republic? Are there any instruments that the Czech Republic necessarily needs to advocate for its own needs, and will this still be possible at the EU level? What needs to be changed immediately and before the end of the current parliamentary term in order not to deepen the energy crisis?

- Gas power plants vs. corporate energy
