dc.description.abstractThis 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. This report covers the progress regarding introduction of renewable energy in 2009 and 2010. The report indicates that the developments regarding renewable energy in Estonia have been much faster than planned in the Estonian National Renewable Energy Action Plan up to 2020.The share of renewable energy considerably exceeded the expected gross final consumption of renewable energy in heating and cooling and electricity generation. The most significant contribution to increasing the share of renewable energy were the support mechanisms stipulated in the Electricity Market Act for CHP plants that generate electricity from renewable sources. The share of renewable energy in the amount of final consumption turned out to be 104 ktoe (4.35 PJ; 1.21 TWh) in 2010, i.e. it was bigger than planned. TheEstonian National Renewable Energy Action Plan up to 2020 predicted the share of renewable energy in final consumption to be 20.9% in 2010, but, in reality, it reached 24.0%. According to the Estonian National Renewable Energy Action Plan up to 2020,the 2020 target amount of energy from renewable sources is 863 ktoe (36.1 PJ, 10.0 TWh). In 2010, the amount of energy produced from renewable sources reached 770 ktoe (32.2 PJ, 8.96 TWh). The results of 2009 and 2010 indicate that the use of renewable energy in the transport sector needs closer attention in the coming years. In must be ensured that the share of renewable energy would be 90–100 ktoe in the transport sector. Even if, for the purpose of assessing the progress towards the transport targets, we were to take into account the 8 ktoe of the fuel that does not meet the sustainability criteria but which was used in Estonia in 2010, thorough changes are required to ensure the required use of renewable energy in the transport sector.
