The independent Czech energy regulator has suffered a blow with the departure of another of its deputy chairman. Martin Laštůvska’s resignation from the authority was announced for health reasons on Wednesday. In mid-January another deputy chairman, Jan Nehoda, was dismissed from his post. He took it upon himself to sign through a stalled 42 billion crown package of subsidies for renewables in 2016 which the ERU head, Alena Vitásková, had been blocking on the grounds it had not been cleared by Brussels authorities. Nehoda originally replaced another top official who stepped down on health grounds.
