Our group operates a wide range of conventional energy related business units - from coal mines, power plant facilities and power engineering units, down to European energy market trading units.
In the current “green-only energy” atmosphere this fact could sound like a disadvantage, but we believe just the opposite. We are convinced that the combination of our firm rooting in the world of traditional energy, together with a deep expertise and willingness to share our knowhow, could bring big advantages to energy markets in transition. We understand our role in an energy market as a bridge between the energy of today and tomorrow – to address the continuing demand for reliable energy and the ambitious goal of making energy markets more renewably-fuelled.
Our mission is to provide a perspective to conventional power plants as long as they are systemically needed and thus offer a robust basis for a swift transition of the energy sector towards a fully sustainable future.
In Europe, we want to be the enablers of that transition, bridging the gap between the energy of today and tomorrow. We are convinced that conventional plants will be replaced at some point, by industrial‐scale energy storage, smart grid systems and responsive demand side management. However, there is a transition period that may last several years. Sev.en Energy aims at supporting that transition, responsibly operating fossil plants that benefit both nergy systems and consumers.
Traditionally rooted in the conventional power-generating business, we are engaged in the extraction of coal. We are committed to the responsible mining of domestic lignite, thereby reducing the Czech Republic’s foreign energy dependence, while enhancing our industry’s competitiveness and scaling up affordable heating for households.
Sev.en Energy operates two lignite mines: the CSA surface lignite mine and the Vrsany mine, both located in Northern Bohemia. Our operations contribute to preserving a significant share of lignite in the Czech Republic’s energy mix.

The company actively trades in electricity, coal and emission allowances at European wholesale markets through energy exchanges (European Energy Exchange for power and ICE – Intercontinental Exchange for emission allowances and financial coal products), brokers, and trade counterparts.

Sustainability is a part of our DNA, we have a long history of it. For example as far back as 1908 the first land restoration office was established in Dux, a city at the edge of the mining area. Long before the word sustainability became a part of our modern vocabulary.
Sev.en Energy continues in this effort. We recognise the impact of our operations on the immediate environment. Hence, the Group is taking every measure possible to reduce the impact of coal extraction and the coal-fired power station.
Since 2005, we have been publishing comprehensive sustainability reports.
