Renewable energy covers half of Estonia’s electricity production

In the second quarter of 2021, electricity produced from renewable sources in Estonia comprised nearly half of the country’s electricity production and nearly one-third of consumption.

Wind energy made up 23 per cent of the total production of renewable energy, a 13 per cent decrease compared to the previous year, while the production of electricity from biomass and waste as well as solar power increased.

In particular, the number of owners of solar panels receiving subsidies is still constantly growing and the volume of electricity generated thanks to solar panels and distributed to the network in the second quarter of this year was 126.5 gigawatt-hours (GWh), with more than 6.5 million euros paid in subsidies for electricity produced and distributed to the network thanks to solar power.
