Polish Next-Day Power Increases as Exports, Weather Cut Supply

Polish electricity for tomorrow rose for a third day as a combination of higher exports and mild weather cut supply and boosted prices of peak-hour deliveries.

Next-day power gained 7.1 percent to 157.17 zloty ($50.46) a megawatt-hour, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Poland was set to export 1,154 megawatts of electricity to the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. tomorrow, up 65 percent from today, data from grid manager PSE Operator SA showed. Prices for evening delivery, when consumption peaks, increased from yesterday as the grid manager projected output from combined heat and power plants may decrease amid warmer-than-usual weather.

Temperatures in Warsaw may be as high as 4 degrees Celsius (39 Fahrenheit) tomorrow, compared to the 10-year average of minus 4 degrees, CustomWeather Inc. data show.

Day-ahead electricity on the coupled markets of the Czech Republic and Slovakia slipped 0.5 percent to 35 euros ($45.89) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators. Hungarian day-ahead power slumped 18 percent to 37.78 euros a megawatt-hour.
