Germany's government must do more to achieve its energy efficiency targets and keep up the momentum in its shift to renewable power, a group of independent experts said in a report seen by Reuters.

Commenting on a separate report on progress towards renewable energy targets to be considered by the cabinet on Wednesday, the experts from a group of German research institutes said policy had to be given more urgency if the government was to achieve its aims.

Since Chancellor Angela Merkel's abrupt decision to accelerate the phase-out of nuclear energy after last year's Fukushima disaster, Germany has been struggling to coordinate an ambitious switch to renewables and to save energy.
