  • PGE Group’s financial and operating performance in the first quarter of 2020


    PGE Group published its financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2020. The green direction followed by the Group contributes to the Group's financial performance and mitigates the impact of market pressure on conventional sources.

    • Relatively flat EBITDA posted by the Group (year-on-year decrease by 2% to PLN 1.8 billion) despite market pressure and negative impact of weather conditions.
    • Weaker performance of the Conventional Generation segment (EBITDA of PLN 497 million, down 27% year-on-year) and District Heating segment (EBITDA of PLN 342 million, down 13% year-on-year) mainly due to higher costs of CO2 emission allowances.
    • Slightly lower generation from conventional sources (at 14.5 TWh, down 2% year-on-year), a decrease partly offset by the positive impact of electricity generated in new units of the Opole Power Plant.
    • Stronger performance of Renewables segment ( EBITDA of PLN 193 million, up 17% year-on-year) owing to increased production from wind farms (at 0.5 TWh, up 19% year-on-year).
    • Improved performance of the Supply segment (EBITDA of PLN 218 million, up 52% year-on-year), mainly on the back of higher margins earned in business tariffs.
    • Limited impact of the pandemic on results in the first quarter; the effects should become noticeable in subsequent reporting periods.
