IPCC publishes Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation

Potsdam, 11 May 2011 - By 2050, a maximum of 77 percent of the world's energy supply could be provided from renewable energy sources. The share of renewable energy in the future global energy mix differs substantially among scientific scenarios. But a comprehensive review by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) outlines the large potential of renewable energy sources to mitigate emissions of greenhouse gases and anthropogenic climate change. On Monday, the summary for policymakers of the ‘Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation’ (SRREN) has been approved by government representatives for IPCC member countries at the 11th Session of Working Group III in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
