Wind energy producers received 32.2 mEUR support in 2015

While in 2014 the Estonian state-owned transmission system operator Elering paid out 26.3 million euros of wind energy support, in 2015 the paid sum is to be around 32.2 million euros.

Last year support was paid for 489 gigawatt-hours of wind energy produced. Elering CEO Taavi Veskimagi said on Monday that by Christmas a record amount of 600 GWh of wind energy had been produced in Estonia this year and by the end of the year the amount should exceed 700 GWh.

By the end of November Elering had paid out renewable energy support for 530 GWh of wind energy. Pursuant to the Electricity Market Act renewable energy support can be paid for up to 600 GWh of wind energy per year which means that no support will be paid for the excess wind energy produced.
