ABSTRACT
The article focuses on report on Renewable Energy, presented by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of India which emphasizes on role of renewable energy in cutting greenhouse gas emission. It further informs that 80% of world's energy supply can be fulfilled by renewable sources like solar energy, geothermal energy and hydro power energy by middle of this century. It also provides details of the research and studies carried out for the proper utilization of these resources.
