Polish Power Rises on Winter Demand; Temperatures May Stabilize
Polish day-ahead electricity rose in the past week as demand increased amid a cold snap. Winter weather is expected to stabilize next week.
Polish day-ahead baseload power increased 3.4 percent to 217.56 zloty (54.33 euros) a megawatt-hour, according to Bloomberg calculations based on Polish Power Exchange data.
Electricity demand advanced as much as 5 percent this week to almost 25,000 megawatt-hours during the evening peak, load data from the Polish power grid show. Prices in neighboring Czech Republic and Germany were higher, making Polish electricity attractive for buyers in those countries.
Midday temperatures in Warsaw next week may be as low as minus 12 degrees Celsius (10 degrees Fahrenheit) from minus 6 degrees today, and minus 15 on Dec. 1, according to CustomWeather Inc. data compiled by Bloomberg. That may keep demand for heating and power output from co-generation stable.
Power supply is forecast to increase by about 200 megawatts of capacity scheduled to start in the coming days, according to the grid data.
