DAY TWO - 2nd December 2021

All times in Central European Time (CET / UTC+1 / Berlin/Paris/Vienna/Rome)

9:00 - 9:15 Welcome/Review of Day 1

Mike Tretheway, InterVISTAS, Vancouver, Canada

Hans-Martin Niemeier, Bremen City University of Applied Sciences, Germany

9:15 - 10:45 Panel 4 Aviation Non-CO2 Climate Impacts

This session will briefly review the latest assessments of non-CO2 impacts – at least double those of CO2 emitted daily - from European climate scientists, and then consider ways to mitigate contrail formation, cruise NOx, soot - black carbon - as well as related air quality impacts including sulphur. Before a discussion of the most appropriate policy responses at EU level including those put forward in the 2020 EASA study.

11:00 - 12:15 Panel 5 The Role of R and D Economics

Many of the technologies which are expected to have a major role do not exist, or are in their infancy. There will need sustained R&D to develop them. How far down can we expect to be in introducing new technologies by 2030? How large will industry-funded R&D be, and what are the incentives for industry to invest? What level of government funding will be needed? Who will provide the funds (tax revenues, government budgets), and do earmarked taxes on aviation to be spent on aviation R&D make sense? Will government rely on free riders (US relying on Europe, Europe relying on the US)?

Chair:

William Morrison, Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada

Panelists:

Stef Proost, KU Leuven, Belgium

Andreas Schäfer, University College London

Damien Meadows, DG CLIMA, Brussels, Belgium

12:15 - 12:45 Lunch Break

12:45 - 14:15 Panel 6: Policy Instruments: Industry

Industry want to/already play a critical role in designing and implementing policies. However, will they act only if someone else pays? Are they realistic about the scale of the problem, or are they understating it? Does the Destination 2050 roadmap constitute a contribution or a dead end? Is industry’s opposition to tax measures justified?

Achim Czerny, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

14:30 - 15:15 Martin Kunz Lecture: Decarbonizing air transport in practice: would putting a price on aviation GHGs work?

Chair: Anne Graham, Westminster University

Lecturer:

Brian Pearce, Visiting Professor, Cranfield University, Former Chief Economist International Air Transport Association

15:15 - 16:30 Panel 7 Roadmap to decarbonizing air transport

This session will cover the available measures that can accelerate aviation’s decarbonisation. More specifically, it will elaborate on their potential, implementation, plan and progress monitoring, as well as barriers to these measures. The session will focus on the full spectrum of aviation stakeholders and their actions, commitments and plans. What is ideal, but what is second best but achievable (ticket taxes which are ubiquitous to capture the recalcitrant for example?). It’s easy to identify problems with existing policies, but can they be improved sufficiently? ETS - would abolition of free permits make a difference, or is a red herring? Can CORSIA be resurrected? Can ticket taxes be reformed so they are more effective? Will there be sufficient political will to resolve aviation’s credibility crisis on climate change. What more can be done to encourage governments to act?
