1 Energy policy and its implementation in Estonia Renewable energy Madis Laaniste, Energy Department

2 National energy policy Adopted in Parliament June 2009 Key issues for Estonia –Security of electricity supply, reduction of carbon intensity on power generation mix –Future of domestic oil shale power generation –Oil shale mining and shale oil production –Diversification of natural gas supply sources –Opening of electricity market –More efficient energy consumption –Higher share of renewable energy –Becoming a member of IEA

3 Targets of RES policy national long-term energy strategy (Parliament 2009) –target for renewables – 25% from gross final energy consumption in 2020 –target for transport – 10% from renewables in 2020

4 Estimates of final consumption and targets of energy efficiency policy

5 Primary energy supply Total Primary Energy Supply: in 2010 – 233 PJ (5.56 Mtoe) [in 2009 – 200 PJ]

6 Final Energy Consumption Total Final Energy Consumption: in 2010 – 119 PJ (2.84 Mtoe)

7 Final Energy Consumption Total Final Energy Consumption: in 2010 – 119 PJ (2.84 Mtoe)

8 Total share of RES

9 Achieving national target

10 Measures to promote RES-E generation Premium tariff support scheme (premium tariff 53.7 /MWh + market price ~50 /MWh), available for 12 years –for RES-E generation in CHPs unlimited support –for wind, support is available until 600 GWh is generated during the calendar year Investment support schemes –for installation of wind energy capacities, first call of proposals ~30 MW; –for small CHPs (biogas, biomass) less than 2 MW el Wind energy support scheme extensions probably needed for additional 300 MW, in total up to 650 MW needed

11 Measures to promote RES-E generation Investment support scheme for offshore wind farms –the use of use of flexibility mechanisms is envisaged Development of the grids Measures to streamline planning of offshore wind farms – basic legislation is in place

12 Measures to promote RES-H generation Fuel excises discourage the use of fossil fuels and promote conversion to RES in boilerhouses Investment support schemes for boilerhouses Long-term contracts for heat suppliers using domestic fuels (principle adopted recently in the District Heating Act)

13 Measures to promote RES-H generation Support to renovation of buildings –Support programmes for apartment buildings started in 2003 –Support programmes for small residential buildings launched in April 2012 –Reconstruction of public buildings Energy performance requirements for buildings promote use of RES in buildings (easier to fulfil the requirements when using heat pumps)

14 Contribution of heat pumps NREAP implementation progress report 2011: –in total, the amount of RES-H was 7931 GWh –in addition to that, estimated share of RES- H from heat pumps was 430 GWh –no information, how this is split between aero-, hydro- or ground source heat pumps
