A record number of new wind generators were put up in Estonia during 2012, with the 86 megawatts of new capacity they added taking the nation’s total wind generating capacity to 269 megawatts.

Wind generators produced 448 gigawatt-hours of electric energy during the year, 22.7 percent more than in 2011, the Estonian Wind Power Association said. The total value of the investments into the wind farms completed during 2012 was more than 122 million euros.

The increase in capacities was almost wholly the result of the completion of two large brand new wind farms – the 39 megawatt Narva wind farm put up on ash fields near Narva by Eesti Energia, and the Eesti Energia and Nelja Energia joint project in Paldiski which saw 18 more generators with an aggregate capacity of 45 megawatts put up next to the existing Pakri wind farm.

Wind generating facilities in Estonia received 14.1 million euros of renewable energy support during the year, 22.5 percent of the sum total of 62.7 million euros paid out as renewable energy support.

Renewable energy support was paid on approximately half the generated amount.
