Subsidies are set in § 59 of the Electricity Market Act in order to promote the use of renewable energy sources, make the energy sector more efficient, and ensure the security of domestic supply and capacity.

According to the Electricity Market Act it is the TSO that pays out the subsidies, and this means Elering. The cost of financing the subsidy is passed on to consumers in proportion to their consumption of network services and the amount of electricity consumed through direct lines.

Under § 591 of the Electricity Market Act, a producer who uses wind as the source of energy may receive support until the total amount of 600 GWh electricity is generated from wind power in Estonia in a calendar year. Separate accounts are kept in respect of each calendar year.

 

Subsidy rate Euro/kWh Conditions for payment

0,0537  From biomass in CHP mode
0,032 In efficient CHP mode from waste as defined in the Waste Act, peat or oil shale retort gas
0,032 In efficient CHP mode using generating equipment with a capacity of not more than 10 MW
