Compared to the 3rd quarter in 2019 Elering AS’s operating income decreased by 6.6% in 2020, amounting to EUR 24.9 million. The main reason for the decrease was related to lower volumes of balancing energy. Decrease derived from lower electricity transmission volumes were balanced by higher gas transmission revenues.


Lower balancing energy revenues impacted costs in the same range. As a result of the extensive investments, the depreciation costs increased by EUR 0.8 million in the 3rd quarter in 2020. In total the operating costs were down by 3.2% amounting to EUR 26.4 million. 

The financial expenses remained stable at EUR 0.6 million.

In total the profit before tax in the 3rd quarter was EUR 2.0 million. The result was impacted by seasonality, as well as lower electricity transmission volumes, resulting from the warm weather.
The cash flows from operating activities amounted to EUR 9.3 million, EUR 20.7 million was invested into the non-current assets, in addition EUR 11.4 million was received from European funds and cross border congestion income of EUR 4.8 was received. The company repaid its loans for EUR 2.6 million.
