Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • China
  • Ecology

Robert U. Ayres focuses on Sustainability, Exergy, Natural resource economics, Capital and Sustainable development. His Sustainability research incorporates themes from Resource, Fossil fuel consumption, Mainstream and Natural capital. His Exergy study combines topics in areas such as Econometrics, Technical progress, Work, Economy and Fossil fuel.

His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental protection, Surface runoff, Phosphorus cycle and Carbon tax, Greenhouse gas. His study in Capital is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate policy, Peak oil and Position. His Sustainable development research integrates issues from Material flow accounting, Environmental planning, Restructuring, Rhine basin and Developing country.

His most cited work include:

  • Production, Consumption, and Externalities (893 citations)
  • Industrial Metabolism: Restructuring for Sustainable Development (469 citations)
  • A handbook of industrial ecology (359 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Neoclassical economics, Technological change, Production, Natural resource economics and Exergy. His Neoclassical economics research incorporates themes from Ecological economics and Public economics. Robert U. Ayres combines subjects such as Consumption and Function with his study of Production.

His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fossil fuel, Economy, Sustainability and Greenhouse gas. His Sustainability study frequently links to related topics such as Sustainable development. His Exergy study incorporates themes from Work and Econometrics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neoclassical economics (11.53%)
  • Technological change (10.85%)
  • Production (10.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2020)?

  • Capital (10.51%)
  • Market economy (4.07%)
  • Exergy (8.81%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Robert U. Ayres mostly deals with Capital, Market economy, Exergy, Economic history and Production. Robert U. Ayres has included themes like Natural resource, Factors of production, Natural resource economics, Labour economics and Productivity in his Capital study. His studies in Exergy integrate themes in fields like Work, Second law of thermodynamics, Electricity and Solow residual.

As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Production, focusing on Econometrics and, on occasion, Economy, Energy intensity and Energy accounting. The concepts of his Sustainable growth rate study are interwoven with issues in Sustainability and Investment. His research integrates issues of Climate change and Renewable energy in his study of Sustainability.

Between 2010 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The underestimated contribution of energy to economic growth (100 citations)
  • The underestimated contribution of energy to economic growth (100 citations)
  • Lithium: Sources, Production, Uses, and Recovery Outlook (82 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • China
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Capital, Econometrics, Economy, Production and Macroeconomics. His Econometrics research includes themes of Exergy and Deindustrialization. The Exergy study combines topics in areas such as Solow residual, Energy intensity, Real gross domestic product and Energy accounting.

His Economy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both ACEGES and Industrial Revolution. His Production research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Primary energy, Work and Function. His work on Factors of production as part of general Macroeconomics research is often related to Cost share, thus linking different fields of science.
