Wind energy record set

Nov 14, 2012
From wire reports

TALLINN - The production of wind energy generator parks in Estonia for the first time exceeded the level of 200 megawatts on the afternoon of Nov. 7, when during the period from 15:10-15:15, wind energy generators produced electricity in the amount of 205 megawatts, reports Elering.
In addition to very strong winds, the production record was based on the addition of wind energy parks to the electricity grid.
Approximately 258 megawatts’ worth of wind power stations are connected to the electricity grid at this time. Out of these, 85.6 megawatts have been added in the last quarter: 45 megawatts in Paldiski and 39 megawatts in Narva, plus a 1.5 megawatt wind farm in Sikassaare on the island of Saaremaa.

Renewable energy output accounted for 13.5 percent of all electricity consumption in Estonia in the third quarter of this year, compared to 13 percent for the same period last year. Compared to a year ago, the total output of renewable energy grew by six percent in the third quarter of this year, to a total of 257 gigawatt-hours. Of this, biomass and biogas-powered generation accounted for 61 percent, wind power for 37 percent, and hydro energy for two percent.  The growth was supported by the opening of new wind farms, which boosted wind-powered electricity output by 31 gigawatt-hours, to a total of 95 gigawatt-hours.
