WARSAW, June 26 (Reuters) - Polish power demand hit a new record for a summer morning of about 24.14 gigawatts (GW) on Wednesday amid a heatwave, grid operator PSE said, adding that the system was stable and it did not expect problems meeting consumption in coming days.
Poland has experienced a heatwave in the past few weeks, with temperatures exceeding 36 degrees Celsius on Wednesday in some parts of the country. But forecasters say temperatures will fall in coming days.
The previous record for a summer morning was set on June 12, when demand was 24.1 GW. The power consumption record was set on Jan. 25 this year when it reached 26.5 GW. Demand for power is typically higher in winter.
In the summer of 2015, PSE imposed power consumption restrictions after a heatwave forced it to cut supplies to industry.
