Renewable energy sources and climate change mitigation. Special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

rrr

IPCC Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation prepared by Working Group III of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The IPCC WG III SRREN is expected to provide a better understanding of: resources by region and impacts of climate change on these resources; the mitigation potential of RE sources; the linkages between RE growth and co-benefits in achieving sustainable development by region; the impacts on global, regional and national energy security; the technology and market status, future developments and projected rates of deployment; the options and constraints for integration into the energy supply system and other markets, including energy storage options; the economic and environmental costs, benefits, risks and impacts of deployment; capacity building, technology transfer and financing in different regions; policy options, outcomes and conditions for effectiveness; and the accelerated deployment that could be achieved in a sustainable manner.
The SRREN will address the information needs of policy makers, private sector and civil society in a comprehensive way and will provide valuable information for further IPCC publications.
