i dedicated all my professional life to asserting sustainable energy solutions.
11 years i was a director of Chance for Buildings, a business alliance of Czech energy efficiency companies. Since 2010 i have built up this organiation into a respected player. Prior to that i served as an advisor to ministers and director of sustainable energy and transportation department at Ministry of Environment. i also worked in NGOs (mainly in Friends of the Earth CZ). As a consultant, i conducted tasks such as assessment of grant applications to EEA/Norway grants or assisted municipalities during their Covenant of Mayors journey.
Outside of Czechia, i often go to Brussels and take part in setting up the EU legislation and economic instruments. i have co-founded Central and Eastern European Energy Efficiency Forum (C4E Forum) and thus enlarged my activities into the wider region. In Romania i assisted in creating Roenef, an energy efficiency business association. For the European Commission i advised on adjusting energy efficiency framework in Ukraine.
i graduated physics (BSc) and environmental studies (MA) at Masaryk University in Brno.
And now my new journey starts. i founded a consultancy Buildings21. Why 21? Quality buildings for the 21. century. Founded in 2021. And being a nice number.
