Polish Next-Day Power Gains Amid Outages, Exports to Sweden

Polish electricity for Saturday rose from a week earlier as unplanned outages coincided with increased flows to Sweden.

Next-day power added 2.6 percent to 190.4 zloty ($57.73) a megawatt-hour, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Poland’s grid operator forecasts 1,319 megawatts of unplanned power halts this weekend, including PGE SA (PGE)’s 858- megawatt Belchatow unit and its 235-megawatt Turow units. Energa SA was to stop operating its 226-megawatt Ostroleka unit today for three days, PSE Operator SA said yesterday.

Poland was set to export more electricity to Sweden during peak-hours, data from the Polish grid manager showed.

Day-ahead electricity on the coupled markets of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary decreased 11 percent to 47.99 euros ($62.14) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators.

The Czech year-ahead contract declined for the seventh day, dropping by 0.2 percent to 45.45 euros a megawatt-hour, broker data on Bloomberg showed.
