Polish power generation fell to 13.1TWh in September, down 4.3% m-o-m and down 1% y-o-y. This is mostly due to the near stagnation situation in the Polish industrial sector amid a fall in domestic and foreign demand. The manufacturing PMI fell in September to the lowest level in 23 months to 50.5 points, down from 51.4 reported in August.
Coal-fired generation dropped 6.7TWh, down 5.2% m-o-m but still was 4% higher y-o-y. Lignite-fired generation declined to 4TWh, down 4.8% m-o-m and down 6.1% y-o-y. Gas-fired generation plummeted to 0.7TWh, down 28.8% m-o-m but still was 17.6% higher y-o-y.
Wind generation jumped to 0.9TWh, up 41.7% m-o-m but still was 39.2% y-o-y.
Overall, Polish power generation increased to 122.9TWh over the first 9 months of the year, up 1.7% y-o-y. Coal-fired generation increased to 60.5TWh, up 2.5% y-o-y; whereas lignite-fired generation fell to 37TWh, down 5.3% y-o-y. Gas-fired generation increased to 7.2TWh, up 51.65 y-o-y.
Power generation from wind fell to 8TWh, down 13.8% y-o-y.
