Future Transatlantic Collaboration On Energy & Climate Under Trump

February 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Is there a future for transatlantic collaboration on energy and climate under Trump?
Sascha Müller-Kraenner
Executive Director / CEO
Environmental Action Germany


European policymakers have started shaping an agenda for international climate collaboration in the Trump era. Sascha Müller-Kraenner, Executive Director of Deutsche Umwelthilfe/Environmental Action Germany, will discuss how the G20 Presidency might provide an opportunity to include the new U.S. administration in an international conversation around energy security, sustainable investments, and climate change. He will also discuss how international coalitions might get rearranged or shift — depending on whether the U.S. administration chooses a course of cautious engagement or disruptive confrontation. Lastly, he will shed light on how German energy policy might develop after the upcoming national elections.


This event is co-sponsored by the BMW Center for German and European Studies and the Science, Technology & International Affairs Program.

This is the fourth lecture in the BMW Center’s 2016-17 special events series, “(N)ever Closer Union? Taking Stock of the European Project,” and is supported by the Michael C. Olshausen Lecture Fund.
