A new Estonian Wind Power Association (EWPA) has been formed with the backing of two Estonian and two German wind companies. EWPA plans to develop wind energy in co-operation with the Estonian government, electricity network operators and regional and local authorities. The two Estonian founders are Tuulepargid and Tuuleenergie. They are joined by German wind project developer Ostwind of Regensburg and SeeBa Energiesysteme of Stemwede, a builder of lattice towers for turbines and a project developer. Jaan Tepp, the SeeBa representative in Tallinn, is to head the new wind association.
