The strategic target of CEZ Group is to become a leader on the electricity markets in Central and East Europe. Apart from generation and sale of electricity the company also operates in the filed of telecommunications, IT, nuclear research, design, construction and maintenance of electricity facilities, raw material extraction and generation of power by-products. At the same time CEZ Group rates among the three largest producers of thermo-power in the Czech Republic. The company services over 7 million customers.
Combining electricity generation and distribution in CEZ Group and observing the effective regulations of the European Union, the structure of the Czech power engineering has got closer to the common West European structure. Since 2005 it has been implementing the principle of strict unbundling of the electricity distribution as a regulated activity from electricity trade. The new structure of the Czech power engineering has created opportunities for development of strong competition.
