||The aim of this paper is to construct a model of Czech electricity system and illustrate its serviceability on examples of environmental regulation impacts evaluation. We will evaluate the impacts of implementation of the Emission trading scheme (ETS) on Czech electricity sector – on emissions, fuel mix and costs. We use the model MESSAGE for our evaluation. We fill the model with economic, technological and environmental data. Our model covers 81 % of electricity gross production and 95 % of electricity gross consumption in the Czech Republic in 2006. Based on our results, the implementation of EU ETS causes the total reduction of 206 million tons of CO2 during the years 2006 – 2030.
