Graeme Cooper

Project Director - Electric Vehicles, National Grid Electricity Trasmission

Graeme leads National Grid’s work on electric vehicles/decarbonisation of transport by leading and coordinating all the work relating to the UK regulated business of National Grid.

Graeme sits in a corporate function but as National Grid separates the Transmission Ownership (TO) from the Electricity System Operation (ESO) by April 2019, Graeme will be focussing on the TO business of National Grid.

His work helps the Government, the energy and automotive industry’s transition towards zero emission vehicles. With over a decade in the disruptive growth or cellular communications infrastructure and over a decade in disruptive growth in renewable electricity, Graeme is a well-known and highly respected energy industry expert.

Graeme is a graduate of Oxford Brookes University (BSc 1997) and Bi Norwegian Business School (MBA Energy 2016).

Graeme takes his decarbonisation work home with him as he drives a PHEV and BEV and heats his home using ground source heat pumps.
