Volker Krey graduated in physics from the University of Dortmund (Germany) in 2002. In 2003 he joined the Institute of Energy Research - Systems Analysis and Technology Evaluation (IEF-STE) of the Research Centre in Jülich, where he continued to work until 2007. Since 2006 he has held a PhD in mechanical engineering from the Ruhr-University of Bochum (Germany). Dr. Krey joined the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in October 2007.

His main fields of scientific interest include the assessment of climate and energy policies and the development and application of integrated assessment models with different regional focuses (national to global scale) and time horizons. In addition, decision making under uncertainty, in particular in the context of future energy transitions and climate change mitigation strategies, has been a focus of Dr. Krey's recent research activities.

He has been appointed a Lead Author of the IPCC Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation, a Lead Analyst of the Global Energy Assessment (GEA) and most recently a Lead Author of the IPCC 5th Assessment Report.
