Nov. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Polish day-ahead electricity increased as the country was set to export more power during the evening demand peak, and cut output when consumption eases.
Next-day power in Poland added 2.8 percent to 167.55 zloty ($51.71) a megawatt-hour, according to exchange data compiled by Bloomberg. Poland was set to boost exports of power to the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia to 1,500 megawatts from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow, from 500 megawatts at the same time today, data from the grid manager PSE Operator SA showed.
PGE SA, Poland’s largest utility said it would cut output at its 1,900-megawatt Turow plant by 51 percent from midnight to 4 a.m. tomorrow, when demand typically subsides.
