Austria recording all-time-high of electricity exports
Never before Austria has exported as much electricity as on June 15, 2020 between 10.30 pm and 10.45 pm. During this period a total of 3,943 MW were transported through APG’s transmission grid into foreign countries. “This figure marks a historic peak. Even though it is only a snapshot, it shows how volatile and unpredictable the new world of electricity and energy is”, says Thomas Karall, APG’s CFO. An extremely favorable streamflow and wind peaks which had the wind generators produce heavily while at the same time electricity demand was low during the late hours were the reasons for the excess supply in Austria.
