Polish Next-Day Power Rises to Highest in Three Weeks on Exports

Polish electricity for next-day delivery rose to the highest price in almost three weeks amid increased exports and unplanned outages.

Next-day power gained 1 percent to 184.18 zloty ($58.44) a megawatt-hour, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show. That’s the highest price since Dec. 20.

Poland was set to export 1,245 megawatts of electricity to the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. tomorrow, compared with 380 megawatts during the same period today, data from grid manager PSE Operator SA showed. Imports from Sweden were due to decrease, the data showed.

Utilities including GDF Suez (GSZ) SA, PGE SA (PGE) and Enea SA (ENA) said they would keep 933 megawatts of capacity off line tomorrow for unscheduled outages.

Day-ahead electricity on the coupled markets of the Czech Republic and Slovakia jumped 15 percent to 49.99 euros ($65.37) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators. Hungarian day-ahead power added 13 percent to 50.67 euros a megawatt-hour.
