Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Greenhouse gas
  • Microeconomics

Volker Krey focuses on Climate change mitigation, Greenhouse gas, Environmental economics, Environmental resource management and Natural resource economics. The Greenhouse gas study combines topics in areas such as Climate change, Earth system science and Representative Concentration Pathways. Volker Krey works mostly in the field of Climate change, limiting it down to topics relating to Baseline and, in certain cases, Climate model, Radiative forcing and Externality.

His research in Representative Concentration Pathways intersects with topics in Supply and demand, Scenario analysis, Emission inventory and Meteorology. His Environmental economics research integrates issues from Carbon capture and storage and Copenhagen Accord. His Environmental resource management study incorporates themes from Closing, Energy intensity and Energy system.

His most cited work include:

  • The representative concentration pathways: an overview (3986 citations)
  • RCP 8.5—A scenario of comparatively high greenhouse gas emissions (1491 citations)
  • The Shared Socioeconomic Pathways and their energy, land use, and greenhouse gas emissions implications: An overview (927 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Greenhouse gas, Environmental economics, Climate change mitigation, Environmental resource management and Natural resource economics. Volker Krey studied Greenhouse gas and Radiative forcing that intersect with Climate model. His Environmental economics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global warming, Energy supply and Software deployment.

His Climate change mitigation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Environmental impact of the energy industry, Baseline and Carbon price. His Environmental resource management research includes elements of Global temperature, Energy intensity and Global climate. He combines subjects such as Investment, Futures contract, Energy system and Climate policy with his study of Natural resource economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Greenhouse gas (29.81%)
  • Environmental economics (29.19%)
  • Climate change mitigation (29.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Greenhouse gas (29.81%)
  • Scenario analysis (8.07%)
  • Natural resource economics (25.47%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Greenhouse gas, Scenario analysis, Natural resource economics, Term and Process. His Greenhouse gas research incorporates elements of Life-cycle assessment, Industrial ecology and Environmental engineering. Volker Krey has included themes like Climate change mitigation, Economy and Air quality index in his Scenario analysis study.

The subject of his Climate change mitigation research is within the realm of Climate change. Volker Krey works on Climate change which deals in particular with Climate model. His study in Natural resource economics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Investment strategy, Energy investment and Investment.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Taking stock of national climate policies to evaluate implementation of the Paris Agreement (39 citations)
  • The NExus Solutions Tool (NEST) v1.0: an open platform for optimizing multi-scale energy–water–land system transformations (12 citations)
  • The NExus Solutions Tool (NEST) v1.0: an open platform for optimizing multi-scale energy–water–land system transformations (12 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Greenhouse gas
  • Microeconomics

Volker Krey spends much of his time researching Sustainable development, Resilience, Open platform, Geospatial analysis and Environmental resource management. His Sustainable development research incorporates Line, Natural resource economics, Investment strategy, Energy investment and Investment. His Resilience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Resource and Seven Management and Planning Tools.
