Estonia National Renewable Energy Action Plan for 2010-2020

Type of law

The Estonia National Renewable Energy Action Plan for 2010-2020 is a sectoral document. In accordance with Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, Estonia is obliged to increase the share of renewable energy sources in the whole of energy consumption as compared to the reference year of 2005 to 25% by 2020. At the moment, the use of biofuels in Estonia is still low, but interest in the use of biofuels is constantly increasing. As a result of the period of economic growth lasting until 2007, energy consumption figures in Estonia have also somewhat increased, but at a significantly slower pace than that of economic growth. Several strategy documents on the use of renewable energy sources have been drawn up and adopted in Estonia. The main roof strategy of the energy sector is the National Development Plan of the Energy Sector up to 2020. In addition to the development plans listed below, the Estonian National Renewable Energy Action Plan up to 2020 also forms a part of it.
