The IPCC was established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and acts a scientific, intergovernemental body to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts. It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change.

The goal of the SRREN report has been to assess existing literature on the contribution of six renewable energy sources to the mitigation of climate change. It is intended to provide policy relevant information to governments, intergovernmental processes and other interested parties.
