Estonians vote for wind and biomass over nuclear

Wind power and biomass have come top of a poll in Estonia to find the public’s first choice of energy sources.

The survey carried out by the Estonian Ministry of the Environment found that 95 per cent of respondents considered wind power to be the most environmentally friendly way to produce energy, with biomass coming second with 81 per cent.

Low cost and energy independence were rated behind being environmental friendly as the top criteria for power generation.

Nuclear power scored the lowest in all categories, except for the energy security category, in which natural gas was considered to be the worst.
