Carey King

Carey King researches energy systems and how they work together and within the environment. Carey’s research interests focus on:
• relating measures of net energy to economics;
• understanding how technology and policy can interact within the nexus between energy and water;
• integration and transition to increased renewable-energy production;
• the economics and life cycle of system-wide/integrated carbon capture and storage infrastructure; and
• promoting objective analyses of energy trade-offs for energy education, decision-making and policy development for natural resources.

Carey is currently a research associate at the Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy at the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin, US. He works as part of several other collaborative research groups at the university including the Webber Energy Group and the Gulf Coast Carbon Center of the Bureau of Economic Geology. He has both a BS with high honours and a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. Carey has published technical articles in the journals Environmental Science and Technology, Environmental Research Letters, Nature Geoscience, Energy Policy, Sustainability and Ecology and Society. He has also written commentary for Earth magazine discussing energy, water and economic interactions. Carey has three patents as former director for scientific research of Uni-Pixel Displays.

About Carey King

Dr. Carey W King performs interdisciplinary research related to how energy systems interact within the economy and environment as well as how our policy and social systems can make decisions and tradeoffs among these often competing factors. The past performance of our energy systems is no guarantee of future returns, yet we must understand the development of past energy systems. Carey’s research goals center on rigorous interpretations of the past to determine the most probable future energy pathways. Carey is a Research Scientist and Assistant Director at the Energy Institute at The University of Texas at Austin, and appointed also at the the Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy within the Jackson School of Geosciences and Business, Government, and Society Department of the McCombs School of Business.
