The Center for Climate Change and Transformation and the Institute for Renewable Energy are pleased to welcome you at this seminar on the effects of Trump administration's energy policy for Europe and the world.

Prof. Shanti Gamper-Rabindran will share insights into her book America’s Energy Gamble, which details how political, financial, and legal institutions entrench fossil fuel dependency, but also how efforts to shift to cost-competitive renewable energy have gained traction in the United States. She will also discuss the increasing focus on "decarbonization" strategies that might be considered questionable (i.e. carbon capture and storage). This will be followed by interventions on EU climate and energy policies and their current shaping of the energy transition in the EU, concluding with a discussion on whether in this energy gamble the US and the EU are friends or foes.

Prof. Shanti Gamper-Rabindran is a professor at the University of Pittsburgh working on climate policies. Prof. Gamper-Rabindran’s research includes analysis on the economic, legal, and political barriers and opportunities for the energy transition to renewable energy and for economic diversification of fossil fuel-reliant communities in the United States and globally.

The event will take place on Thursday 18.07.2024 at 11:30 - 12:30. No registration is necessary, all participants are welcome.
