As Anna Senderowicz of PKO BP notes, since the beginning of the year, coal prices on the Polish market have been steadily increasing, but the growth dynamics have been lower compared to world markets. This is a result of local suppliers renegotiating previously concluded contracts and increasing the share of imported raw materials in the supply of energy producers. In her view, this will increase the operating costs of electricity and heat producers.
“This is a particular problem for heating plants, which have been running on the edge of profitability for years. More expensive coal will also hurt the margins of the power plants supplied with it” – wrote Dziennik.pl.

Tariffs calculated by companies and approved by the ERO Head will continue to be approved after administrative procedures in accordance with applicable regulations.
