At regular intervals, the IPCC presents comprehensive scientific assessments of the existing scientific, technical and socioeconomic literature on climate change.
One of these activities is the publication of a Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN). As shown in the AR4, renewable energy sources can make a substantial contribution to climate change mitigation as early as 2030.
The IPCC organizes Expert Meetings and Workshops to facilitate discussions of topics relevant to the assessment process and to receive early input from the scientific community.
