The amendment of the German Energy legislation in April 1998 breaks
	up the regulated monopoly and transforms the monopolistic electric
	utility industry into a competitive electric power industry (cf.
	Erdmann 2000). The new energy legislation introduces competition
	in the generation and trading business, whereas the free choice of
	supplier on the wholesale and retail level creates additional competitive
	pressure on the trade chain (cf. Haupt and Pfaffenberger 2000). As
	a consequence of the liberalization process, transaction relations,
	trading processes, contract designs, and market structures are undergoing
	radical changes (cf. Bower et al. 2000).
