Czech, Slovak Day-Ahead Power Tumbles as Germany to Cut Demand

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Power for the next day in the Czech Republic and Slovakia fell along with prices in Germany, where demand was set to fall on a public holiday tomorrow.

Next-day contracts on the Czech and Slovak markets declined 40 percent to settle at 29.76 euros ($38.49) a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators. Day-ahead power in Germany dropped 44 percent to 28 euros, broker data showed. Power consumption typically falls on weekends and holidays.

The Polish contract for tomorrow decreased 7 percent to 175.54 zloty ($55.34) a megawatt-hour, according to exchange data compiled by Bloomberg.
