Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Day-ahead electricity in the Czech Republic and Slovakia plunged as wind output in Germany was set to rise to a record.

Output from wind turbines in Germany tomorrow was forecast to be about 25,000 megawatts, according to the website of Meteologica SA, a Madrid-based weather forecaster. Wind generation was at 9,043 megawatts at 12:45 p.m. in Berlin, compared with an annual record of 20,514 megawatts, according to data from European Energy Exchange AG in Leipzig.

Polish electricity for the next day fell 5.7 percent to 146.76 zloty ($47.15) a megawatt-hour, its lowest level for working day delivery since Jan. 2, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show.
