The German electricity market is Europe's largest, with annual power consumption of over 500 TWh and a generation capacity of over 100 GW. Liberalization of the electricity market and the gradual opening up of the electricity market in the EU has made the German electricity sector one of the most competitive sectors in Europe. Electricity transmission has been unbundled and made more accommodating for third-party access to transmission and distribution assets through negotiations among the parties.

Germany has the largest and most reliable electric grid in Europe. The German transmission grid is operated by four large energy supply companies, namely EnBW Transportnetzgesellschaft, E.ON Net, RWE Transportnetz Strom and Vattenfall Europe Transmission. Grid operators play a vital role in the secure supply of electricity. They are responsible for maintaining and ensuring balance between generation and consumption at any point in time.

The German energy market is a healthy market place with enough room for four vertically integrated suppliers – Amprion (formerly RWE), EnBW Transportnetze, TenneT TSO (formerly E.ON), and 50Hertz Transmission (formerly Vattenfall Europe) - who supply approximately half of the market, and a thriving regional and municipal supplier market with both distribution and retail assets. A single-price settlement scheme with quarter-hour settlement periods is implemented in the four control areas supplied by the four main suppliers, with the European Energy Exchange (EEX) acting as a common point of reference for domestic electricity prices. More than one thousand market participants are active in the fully liberalized German electricity market, with new market actors successfully entering the domestic electricity market.

Aruvian Research analyzes the Power Market in Germany in its research offering Analyzing the Power Market in Germany. The report begins with a brief profile of the global energy industry and moves on to analyze the power situation in Western Europe. We analyze the power sources in the region as well as power consumption and generation statistics. We also include a geographic segmentation of the power market in Western Europe.

Moving on to the analysis of the power industry in Germany we look at industry statistics, the power consumption in Germany, installed capacity of power in the country as well as the regulations impacting the power industry.

The various power sources in Germany are also analyzed such as thermal power sources, renewable energy sources as well as nuclear power sources amongst others. The power trade in Germany is also looked at. Next we look at the power transmission and distribution network as well in Germany along with a brief profile of the electric grid in the country. Major power projects in Germany are also analyzed.

The report wraps up with an analysis of the major industry players as well as the competition in the industry.
