It is another step towards the preparation of individual subsidy calls from the Modernisation Fund where CZK 150 billion is allocated and intended for financing of environmentally friendly projects in the following ten years.

Smart solutions in cities can prevent wastage. Public sector still uncertain about how to tackle it

Nevertheless, there is a snag in it. The motivation of the public sector to implement smart solutions is lower than in the private sphere. How can one use smart solutions more effectively?
