Four wind farms owned by Enefit Taastuvenergia, renewable energy production unit of the state-owned Eesti Energia, in eight months of this year produced 133 gigawatt-hours or 25 percent more electricity than in the same period last year.

Head of Enefit Taastuvenergia Aavo Karmas said that reasons behind the output growth are improved wind conditions and reliability compared with the previous year. “To illustrate the amount of electricity produced in eight months, 133 gigawatt-hours, it is a sufficient amount for more than 50,000 average consumption households for a year,” Karmas said.

Enefit Taastuvenergia owns four wind farms: Aulepa, Narva, Paldiski and Virtsu. Electricity production increased in all four wind farms.

Altogether 408 gigawatt-hours of wind electricity was produced in Estonia in the first eight months of this year, which is 23 percent more than in the same period last year. Of that 33 percent was produced by Enefit Taastuvenergia.

Enefit Taastuvenergia is a renewable energy production unit owned by Eesti Energia, which produces energy from wind, water, biomass and mixed municipal waste. The production units of the company are Iru power plant, wind farms in Aulepa, Narva, Paldiski and Virtsu, and the heat and power stations in Paide and Valka. Additionally, Enefit Taastuvenergia manages the hydroelectric plants at Keila-Joa and Linnamae.

The government has announced the wish to float a minority shareholding of Enefit Taastuvenergia. Eesti Energia is currently in the process of ex-ante analysis of bringing Enefit Taastuvenergia to the market.
