The specific impact of market liberalisation on the electricity supply sector depend on many different factors and boundary conditions. A comparison of these impact in Germany and Austira, two countries with both participate in the European interhational market and have a central geographical location in Western Europe, and wihich both have borders and important trade relationsships with General European countries, provides some important insights. Furthermore, the paper also covers the expected influence of the increase in the electricity trade volumes in the two countries, also with their Central European neighbours, and the concerns that this may lead to conflicts in the achievement of targets in energy, environmental, and climate change policies aimed for both at the national and at the European level.
