values
.01
EXPERIENCE
Most of us have been involved in the energy sector for decades. Our experience is mainly connected with the activities of transmission system operators in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Don’t expect to find a corporate model here. We are a select team of professionals from across the energy sector who know the market in which they operate.
.02
RELIABILITY
What characterizes our work the most is our values, which run through everything we do. When we say something, it's true, we mean it and you can count on it. We know that trust is easily broken and difficult to build, which is why we care so much about maintaining it.
.03
Uniqueness
We realize that every customer is unique. We do not bring cookie-cutter advice to the table; we bring tailor-made solutions. We think about the specific context. We treat each client individually. We believe that only in this way can we bring you the best results.
.04
BACKGROUND
We have been operating on the market since 2001. We are part of the Energy Investment Fund. Today, the EIF Group consists of 7 companies operating in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Thanks to the support and background of EIF, we are constantly developing and improving. We are not afraid to look for solutions where others cannot see them.
COMPANY MANAGEMENT

Peter Kajaba

CEO

BIO

It was in 2001, when Peter, while still studying, decided to found a small start-up in Western Slovakia, Nitra. Peter is a great visionary and since the very beginning, he has been the cornerstone of ENERGY TRADING COMPANY (ETC), a company that has established itself on the market over the years and has become a recognized partner of large energy and trading companies in both Central and Western Europe. Since its foundation, the main and only focus of the company has been trading in electricity and its derivatives. Thanks to a correctly chosen strategy, the ability to adapt to new conditions in a timely manner and openness to new opportunities, the company was able to start its third decade on the market. In 2021, ETC became a member of EIF Group, a.s., which opened up new opportunities for both companies to expand their portfolio.

Jiří Strnad

CSO

BIO

Immediately after graduating from the University of Economics in Prague, Jiří headed to ČEPS where he seized the opportunity to get to know it through and through. At ČEPS, he was mainly in charge of international trade and related market services. Under his leadership, the Czech, Slovak, Hungarian and Romanian daily electricity markets were connected through market coupling. After 15 years of walking in step, Jiří crossed the border and promoted the interests of SEPS in Slovakia for 4 years. His main focus was on the development and integration of markets, the development of dispatch management and, to an extent, the implementation of European legislation. After twenty years of working in state-owned companies, he expanded his repertoire to include the private sector and modern energy. He is now successfully applying his know-how at EIF, and especially at EIFLEXI, where he is in charge of flexibility aggregation projects. In his free time, he runs the ČSEF platform.

Energy is what we live for.
Each of us has been involved in energy industry almost all of our entire professional career.
