Estonians consider wind power as the best energy source

EWPA's blog - etea August 6, 2012

According to a survey by Estonian Ministry of the Environment, people in Estonia consider wind power and biomass as the best energy sources from both economic and environmental aspect but also from energy security perspective. 95% of the respondents considered wind power and 81% biomass as the most environmentally friendly way to produce energy.

The majority of the respondents found that the most important aspect in generating energy is the environmental friendliness, followed by features like low cost and independence.

The worst in all aspects was considered nuclear power, except in country’s energy security where natural gas was found even worse. Even today’s main energy source in Estonia – oil shale – did not find supporters among respondents. The only advantage of oil shale over gas was seen in the energy security, but also there it was outpaced by wind and bioenergy.

The survey was recently conducted to find out how people in Estonia evaluate the state of country’s environment, which problems they see in it and also how they rank the priorities in energy production. The scope of the research was persons aged 15-74 years with a total of 1,005 respondents. The results of the study can be inferred for the total in-scope population. The survey was conducted for the Ministry of the Environment  in Estonia by Turu-uuringute AS.
