Poland could face power capacity shortages beyond 2020

Poland could face problems related to insufficient power capacity in the system beyond 2020 and introducing a capacity market could be a long-term solution to the problem, power grid operator PSE head Eryk Klossowski told a news conference.

"Our analyses show that after 2020 we might encounter problems related to insufficient capacity," Klossowski said, adding that the capacity market could be "an optimal long-term solution."

If the capacity market is not introduced, "it will be necessary to implement a package of radical market reforms related to, for instance, the introduction of locational marginal pricing," he said.

In 2019, certain transition periods related to environmental requirements end. Also, some generation assets will have to be mothballed due to their age and poor state.

Poland should consider establishing a common power market with the Baltic States, in Klossowski’s opinion, and some "very preliminary" talks are underway.
