Carlo is the Co-Founder of encoord and Managing Director of encoord, LLC. He is a lecturer at the University of Colorado Boulder where he teaches graduate courses in the Department of Electrical, Computer, & Energy Engineering. Carlo has a Ph.D. in Technology, Policy and Management from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and a Master in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Bristol, UK.

Before working at encoord, Carlo was employed for over five years as a Senior Research Engineer at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). His research focused on the impact of variable renewable energy on power system planning and operations and on the interface between electricity and natural gas systems. He also led a research project that analyzed the potential impacts of climate change on power system planning and operations at high renewable penetrations. While at NREL he advised the Energy Ministry officials of Mexico and Peru on power system planning and renewable integration.

Before joining NREL, Carlo was employed for three years as a researcher at the Joint Research Centre, the in-house scientific service of the European Commission. His research focused on energy system modelling and techno-economic assessments of the European power system.
