Household electricity consumption

Four-fifths of all energy consumed by Czech households is used for heating and hot water. The remainder is consumed for lighting, cooking, cooling and other uses.

People mostly use purchased heat for heating, which heats over 1.7 million households. The second most common source is gas, which heats over 1.6 million households. Over the last six years, the number of households heating with gas, electricity and renewables has increased.
