As 2020, Estonia has a wind power installed capacity of about 320 MW.[2]

All wind farms are on land, offshore farms are planned on Lake Peipus and in the Baltic Sea near the island of Hiiumaa.[3][4]

All together, three major offshore projects with total capacity of 1490 MW are being planned in Estonia: a 700 MW project near the island of Hiiumaa by Nelja Energia, also a 600 MW project in Gulf of Riga by Eesti Energia and a 190 MW offshore wind farm near the western coast of Estonia by Neugrund OÜ.[5]
