Tallinna Elektrijaam (Tallinn Power Plant), operator of the Vao cogeneration plant outside the Estonian capital Tallinn, received the most renewable energy support in January – 834,215 euros or 1.8 percent more than in December, data of the transmission network operator Elering show.

Last year Tallinna Elektrijaam was paid subsidies totaling 8.52 million euros, 5 percent more than the year before.

The subsidy paid in the first month of the year to the Tartu-based thermal energy provider Anne Soojus owned by Fortum Tartu, 724,065 euros, remained at December’s level. Anne Soojus received 7.48 million euros in renewable energy subsidies last year, which marks a year-on- year increase of 7.3 percent.

Fortum Eesti received 606,481 euros in January compared to 581,779 euros in December. Support to Fortum Eesti amounted to 7.75 million euros in 2012, growing by 8.9 percent in annual comparison.

Elering disbursed a total of 3.99 million euros in renewable energy subsidies and 434,625 euros in support for high efficiency cogeneration in January.

According to the calculations of Elering, the renewable energy charge for consumers this year is 0.87 cents per kilowatt-hour, which is 10 percent less than last year. Consumers finance through the charge the subsidies paid to producers of electricity from renewable sources. The charge is paid by all consumers in Estonia in proportion with their consumption of network services.

Elering serves as tax administrator, collecting the charge and distributing it among producers.
