The rapidly expanding aviation sector still relies exclusively on heavily polluting fossil-based liquid fuels. Alongside measures such as carbon offsetting, increased aircraft efficiency and improved air traffic management, sustainable advanced alternative fuels have been put forward as a potential solution to the resulting emissions. Yet, the dubious sustainability of certain renewable fuels as an alternate energy source for transport has become a controversial issue in the European Union over the past years. This has led policy-makers to introduce reforms geared towards increased production of new and advanced types of sustainable fuels. Evidence of this can be found in the European Commission’s recent so-called Winter Energy Package where it proposes a recast of the EU’s main energy-related legislation.

Join us for an evening guest lecture, presented by Robert Falkner, Professor in International Relations at the London School of Economics, on Monday 24 April 2017. The lecture will review the unilateralist turn in America’s climate policy under Trump and reflect on its likely impact on the Paris Agreement. Professor Falkner will examine how robust the climate regime is to such political shocks and whether subnational climate efforts in the US can temper the Trump effect.
