Estonian transmission system operator (TSO) Elering paid out over €5.4m in renewable energy subsidies and high-efficiency co-generation subsidies in January this year, according to Baltic News Service (BNS).
Elering paid out just under €5.2m in renewable energy subsidies and approximately €277,900 in high-efficiency cogeneration subsidies during the month, the company said.
This included slightly over €6,900 paid out in biogas subsidy, over €2m in biomass subsidy, circa €2.8m in wind energy subsidy, €33,500 in hydro-energy subsidy and about €272,100 in solar energy subsidy.
In 2022, Elering paid out altogether €90mn under the two items.
When administering renewable energy subsidies, Elering acts as a paying agency, collecting renewable energy fees from consumers through network companies and paying this as subsidy to electricity plants producing electricity from renewable sources.
Renewable energy support and high-efficiency cogeneration support are deemed to be state aid, BNS said.
