The article discusses the features of the energy policy of the coalition government of German chancellor Angela Merkel in the next four years as of 2009. As part of the strategy to align energy and climate policy, the government calls for the extension of the lives of Germany's nuclear power plants while embarking to invest in renewables. The government also intends to create a body that will monitor energy market transparency and to reform the Renewable Energy Act that will signal reduced support for the country's booming solar industry.
