Abstract (in english)
   This article deals with the issue of brownfield redevelopment for the needs of solar energy projects from different perspectives. Attention is first paid to a brief characterisation of the data and information available both for brownfields and for solar energy projects in the Czech Republic. Then there is description from the most important results of GIS analysis, which (based on a comparison of aerial images from different years) identified the previous uses at the 127 solar power plants with an output of over 1 MWp in the South Moravian Region. The results of the quantitative analyses are accompanied by knowledge from a qualitative survey conducted on selected actors participating in this kind of brownfield regeneration for solar energy development. The conclusion contains proposals which could contribute to the more intensive future use of brownfields for the needs of solar energy in the Czech Republic (a similar process to what has already successfully been realised in Germany).
