This report has been drawn up in compliance with Article 22 of Directive 2009/28/EC, which requires member states to submit a report to the Commission on progress in the promotion and use of energy from renewable sources not later than by 31 December 2011, and every two years thereafter. According to Directive 2009/28/EC, Estonia must ensure that the share of energy from renewable sources amounts to 25% of the gross final consumption of energy and 10% in the energy consumption of the transport sector in 2020. The activities aimed to achieve this are described in the Estonian National Renewable Energy Action Plan up to 2020 that was approved in government order No 452 of 26 November 2010.
