Dr. Clemens Koenig is a Senior Consultant in NERA’s Environmental Economics Practice, based in Frankfurt. Dr. Koenig believes in the value of economics in helping businesses and governments address the growing sustainability challenges they face. He is keen to apply his thinking and experience around the economics of climate change and alignment with long-term decarbonisation goals. Dr. Koenig has substantial experience in economic and financial modelling and effectively communicating modelling insights to non-experts.  

In renewable energy auctions, Dr. Koenig has experience advising on both auction design and strategy. He has advised several governments on auctions for supporting renewable energy and has worked with bidders to develop auction strategies in complex settings, where he has led on auction simulation modelling. In climate change economics, Dr. Koenig has been closely involved in developing and applying a new project appraisal methodology for a major multilateral lender, incorporating the pricing of carbon and other externalities, as well as criteria for consistency, with long-term decarbonisation targets. He also has extensive experience in assessing carbon leakage risk in a variety of industrial sectors, including the analysis of indicators for sectors’ ability to pass through carbon costs. Dr. Koenig also has provided analytical support in several commercial disputes and other litigation related to European carbon and energy markets, providing valuation of power plants under various counterfactuals.
