Offshore Wind Energy

Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia are starting to ramp up offshore wind farms: On 30 August 2022 the
Heads of Governments and Energy Ministers of the eight countries around the Baltic Sea met in
Copenhagen. They committed to new volumes for the build-out of offshore wind in the Baltic Sea. In
September this year a first auction will be held in Estonia. There is a huge demand for local
professionals, especially for engineers in the coming years.

Estonia’s energy sector is at a stage where we are facing a number of choices and challenges that require quick decisions, but it is also important to keep the focus on long-term strategies and targets.

The Estonian energy sector has historically been dependent on fossil fuel, es-pecially oil shale. In today’s world, their share is clearly declining.
The target set by the Energy Sector Organisation Act to cover the country’s elect-ricity consumption with renewable energy production by 2030 requires storage capacity, managed generation and consumption management.

At TalTech, researchers have studied the nature of energy cooperatives, possible business models, and their feasibility. As a result, they concluded that an energy cooperative can create a significant proportion of the power consumed at local municipalities from renewable sources with minimal expenses, reduce the need for centrally produced electricity, increase awareness among the citizens and public officials about energy issues, and provide an alternative to individual small producers and major producers.
