The Polish power system operator, Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) announced an oversupply of electricity in the country’s grid system from renewable energy sources (RES) on Saturday (30 April).
Power generation from renewables exceeded demand by around 2.3 gigawatts (GW) in the oversupply peak, PSE said. As a result, the operator issued an order to reduce RES power generation.
PSE does not anticipate disruptions in electricity supply to domestic customers.
This is the second oversupply warning in a fortnight. On 23 April, PSE issued a threat to the security of power supply between 11-5 pm to reduce RES generation connected to the medium voltage.
As of 13 April 2023, the maximum capacity of solar farms in Poland is approximately 13 GW, while the maximum capacity of wind farms is around 9.5 GW, PSE said.
