The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is published on May 9, 2011. The report is under the leadership of Ottmar Edenhofer evaluates the global potential for renewable energy. mitigate climate change. This IPCC Special Report provides broader coverage of renewable energy than was included in the IPCC’s 2007 climate change assessment report. Renewable energy can contribute to “social and economic development, energy access, secure energy supply, climate change mitigation, and the reduction of negative environmental and health impacts”. Under favorable circumstances, cost savings in comparison to non-renewable energy use exist.
Previously the IPCC reviewed in its third assessment report, published in 2007, but members decided that it is important to reduce carbon emissions. The Outline of the IPCC WG III’s Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN) was approved at the IPCC Plenary in Budapest in April, 2008. The final report was approved for the 11th session of the IPCC Working Group III, May 2011, in Abu Dhabi. The IPCC 5th Edition Report. The IPCC 5th Assessment Report. The SRREN was released for publication on May 9, 2011.
Renewable energy can contribute to “social and economic development, energy access, secure energy supply, climate change mitigation, and the reduction of negative environmental and health impacts”. In the report, the IPCC said “as infrastructure and energy systems develop, in spite of the complexities, there are few, if any, where renewable resources exist or can be supplied “. Under favorable circumstances, cost savings in comparison to non-renewable energy use exist. IPCC scenarios “generally indicate that growth in renewable energy will be widespread around the world”. The IPCC said that it was supportive, and the full range of renewable energy technologies were deployed, renewable energy could account for almost 80% of the world’s energy supply within four decades. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC, said it would be necessary for a global GDP annually. This approach could keep greenhouse gas concentrations to less than 450 parts per million, the catastrophic and irreversible.
