Polish power demand in August rose 3.1% year on year to 13.84 TWh, while net generation increased 16% to 14.05 TWh on the back of higher coal burns, the country's transmission system operator PSE said September 14.
Poland's coal-fired power generation rose significantly in August due to increased electricity demand. Hard coal-fired and lignite-fired generation rose 21% and 22% year on year respectively and accounted for 80.9% of Poland's total energy mix.
The country's natural gas power generation took 6.9% of the total, down 1 percentage point from the year-ago level, while onshore wind power generation accounted for a 6.7% share, up 1.7 percentage points year on year.
Other renewable energy reached a 4% share in the total generation in the month, higher than 2.3% a year ago.
