Polish Next-Day Power Rises Amid Extended Maintenance, Exports

Polish electricity for tomorrow rose for a second day amid delayed starts of power plants and increased exports.

Next-day power gained 0.6 percent to 146.78 zloty ($47.75) a megawatt-hour, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Tauron Polska Energia SA (TPE) and Enea SA delayed starts of power units with a combined capacity of 925 megawatts that were initially expected to supply electricity tomorrow, data from the power grid manager PSE Operator SA showed. Poland was set to become a net exporter, sending a maximum of 546 megawatts to Germany during peak evening hours tomorrow. That compares with no exports at the same time today, the data showed.

Day-ahead electricity on the coupled markets of the Czech Republic and Slovakia added 0.5 percent to 35.17 euros ($46.59) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators. Hungarian day-ahead power jumped 29 percent to 46 euros a megawatt-hour.
