The current record for energy consumption in Estonia is 1587 MW, achieved on 28.01.2010 between 17:40 and 17:45, a tripling of peak consumption from the level of 1966.

In 2016, electricity consumption in Estonia with grid losses was 8.38 TWh a year. By November 2016, the net installed capacity of the Estonian electricity system was 2947 MW. However, real possible net generation is lower, as it depends on repairs to equipment and emergencies and on the available production from wind and hydro-powered generation.

By October 2016, 375 MW of wind parks had joined the Estonian electricity system, of which 282.2 MW were directly connected to the main grid. At the moment the record production of wind parks is 279 MW, achieved on December 10th, 2014 between 14:45 and 14:50.

During the recent years the overall production record has been 2281 MW and it was achieved on January 15th, 2016 between 09:55 and 10:00. 

The transmission of electricity through the grid inevitably results in losses, which Elering covers by buying electricity from the Nordic electricity exchange. The levels of losses depend on many factors, such as the amount of energy transferred, the direction of cross-border energy trades, division of power flows through the united energy system and the resulting transit flows, and weather conditions such as humidity and rainfall. In 2016, losses accounted for 3.0% of the total amount of electricity put into the Elering's main grid.

In the files below are shown the forecasts of consumption, maximum load, windpark generation and transfer capacities in Estonian power system. Forecasts are preliminary and are to be changed during the process of balance planning. 

Pursuant to the Grid Code, Elering as the system administrator prepares annually the assessment of the production reserve needed for satisfying the consumption demand.
The assessment is drafted based on the requirement that a sufficiency reserve of the production equipment of the system may not be lower than the maximum daily consumption of the system (peak consumption), to which a 10% reserve is added to ensure electricity supply in the case of unexpected load changes and long-term unplanned interruptions in production.

Pursuant to subsection 132 (5) of the Grid Code ‘Production supplies needed for meeting the consumption demand’, all electricity generating authorities must submit the data specified in Appendix 3 of the Grid Code concerning the following 10 years to the system operator Elering by 1 February each year for the evaluation of the system adequacy reserves.

Elering will publish the assessment of the production reserve needed for meeting the consumption demand for the next 10 years for January (maximum consumption) and July (minimum consumption). Assessments have been brought in Adequacy reports of the production equipment of the Estonian electricity system published for years until 2015 and in Security of Supply Reports since year 2016.
