Carolina Escudero

I’m an electrical engineer with a masters in sustainable technology and work for Vattenfall which is a Swedish Energy company.

I currently work in the Networks department which is a new business unit set up in the UK for electricity distribution networks. We work to own, operate and maintain distribution networks (both private and independent) on behalf of customers.

My role as a Business Development Manager is to find technical and commercial solutions to enable the decarbonization of heavy transport via electrification. I’m particularly interested in electrification of marine transport and I am very proud of the impact we can make to slow down climate change. I have worked in transmission and distribution most of my career both in Colombia (where I’m from) and here in the UK.

I’m also a keen volunteer and council member of the Women’s Engineering Society and actively organise events to promote women in engineering.
