Diego Garcia Carvajal manages projects and advocacy related to electric vehicles on the European Copper Institute’s (ECI) Clean Energy Transition (CET) team. Focused on the big picture, he appreciates any project in which he can develop a holistic vision, connect it with policy outcomes and see it through to implementation.
Interested in solutions mitigating climate change, Diego is passionate about his current work on accelerating the transition to battery electric vehicles in Europe. After three years of research and liaising with EU policymakers and other stakeholders, Diego is proud the EU Commission included several of CET’s provisions in their Regulations on CO2 standards for Cars and Alternative Fuels Infrastructure. Diego is also working on market initiatives, such as a pilot project implementing a megawatt charging system to fuel long-haul battery trucks on a European corridor and guidelines for truck fleet operators on depot charging infrastructure.
