The introduction of an European common market for electricity and the opening of the power markets to eastern Europe and Scandinavia will have a drastic and lasting effect on the structure of the German electricity industry. This paper presents an evaluation of the possible effects of a single market especially on the power trade within Europe and the German power plant system. One special aspect is the investigation, whether a flooding of the German electricity market with French nuclear power could happen. Scenario simulations reject the argumentation that a European common market for electricity would lead to a dramatic increase in international electricity trade.
