Since the year 2013 electricity in Estonia is a market product, the price of which is determined by the relationship of the supply and demand on the Nordic and Baltic electricity exchange. Estonia forms only a small part of the Nordic and Baltic joint electricity market, despite Eesti Energia being a very large company in the Estonian context.

The market price of electricity on the exchange is shaped through the joint effect of different aspects and depends on the cost of important production inputs (for example CO2 quota, coal, gas), as well as the general situation on the electricity market or the existence of production capacities and demand.

The price of the network service consists of the costs for forwarding electricity and the cost of renewable energy, as well as the electricity excise tax. Value added tax is added to all charges and the excise tax.

  • The cost of forwarding electricity is the charge for maintaining the Elektrilevi network and delivering electricity. The Competition Authority annually approves the cost of the network service.
  • The renewable energy charge is a state appointed fee, which aims to support the production of clean energy in Estonia. The prime network company, Elering, calculates and publicises the annual renewable energy fee.
  • The electricity excise tax is a state tax, which is used for funding environmental protection.
