Cross-border energy flows up considerably in the 2nd Q

According to OÜ Põhivõrk (Main Grid), a subsidiary of the Eesti Energia (Estonian Electricity) power utility, the amounts of electricity transferred within the country stayed at the previous year’s level in Q2 this year, but cross-border energy flows increased considerably.
In Q2 this year 1,701 gigawatt-hours of electricity was transferred domestically in the main grid. Compared with the same period last year the volume remained practically unchanged, Põhivõrk said.
Cross-border energy flows, that is export, import and transit energy totalled 1,178 gigawatt-hours, 461 gigawatt-hours more than in the same period last year.
Of the energy directed into the power grid nearly 0.4 percent or 10.2 gigawatt hours was produced from renewable energy sources. Of this 8.3 gigawatt-hours was wind energy and 1.8 gigawatt-hours hydroelectric or waste energy.
