Tim Rayner

Research Fellow

Role at Tyndall

Part of the Tyndall Centre since 2006, Tim has participated in a range of European Union and national research council-funded projects, covering climate change governance and policy, particularly from EU and UK perspectives. He has published on mitigation and adaptation-related policy areas, and emerging debates over climate engineering and the potential for greenhouse gas removal. Until January 2020, he was part of the Horizon 2020-funded project, COP 21-RIPPLES (Results, Implications, Pathways and Policies for Low-Emissions European Societies), analysing the adequacy of international climate governance in the wake of the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Until 2022, he will be actively researching the factors affecting the extent to which policy in a number of key policy sectors in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany is changing in response to the need to adapt to increased impacts from climate change (as part of Adapt Lock-in), and participating as a consortium partner in the Jean Monnet Network ‘Governing the EU’s Climate and Energy Transition in Turbulent Times’ (GOVTRAN).

He acted as UK partner in the Norwegian Research Council-funded REMIX project (Revising the National Renewables Policy Mix: the Role of State Aid and other EU policies).
