What are the Linkages between Climate and Economy? Bibliometric Analysis


Climate change poses a major challenge to capitalist-oriented societies to restructure their economies and adapt to low-carbon measures that, at first glance, may not be the most economically viable option. Therefore, climate-economy models have become increasingly important in environmental and energy policy in recent years. This study examines recent trends in climate-economy and energy equilibrium research and examines the relationship among the identified key attributes. A bibliometric analysis is used to evaluate scientific publications from the Scopus database that have addressed the relationship between the environment and the economy and have developed climate-economy models. Results show that climate change, emission control, CO2 emissions are strongly linked with economic and social effects, energy policy, renewable energy resources and energy efficiency. Most recent articles focus on photovoltaic system and electricity, energy utilization, economic analysis and sustainable development.
