Polish Next-Day Power Decreases as Exports Cut Amid Wind Output

December 03, 2012

Polish day-ahead electricity declined as exports were set to fall amid forecasts of higher wind output in Germany.

Next-day power dropped 1.6 percent to 177.15 zloty ($56.11) a megawatt-hour, exchange data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Net exports to Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia were set to decline to 224 megawatts from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. tomorrow, from 1,195 megawatts at the same time today, predominantly due to lower flows to Germany, data from Warsaw- based grid manager PSE Operator SA showed.

German power for tomorrow, a benchmark for the region, decreased 12 percent to 48.65 euros ($63.31) a megawatt-hour as above-average wind generation is forecast.

Day-ahead electricity on the coupled markets of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary slumped 9.4 percent to 49.45 euros a megawatt-hour in a daily auction, according to the countries’ market operators.
