From 2011 to 2018, Carl-Friedrich Elmer belonged to the expert staff of the German Advisory Council on the Environment (SRU), primarily working on topics in climate, energy, and transport policy. Before, he was research associate at the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy at Berlin Institute of Technology (TU Berlin). Carl-Friedrich Elmer studied economics (master’s degree) in Münster and Los Angeles. For his PhD, he worked on the rationale and design of fuel economy regulations for passenger vehicles as well as their interplay with the broader climate policy framework. Research stays, especially in the United States, brought him amongst other to Resources for the Future, Johns Hopkins University, and UC Berkeley. At Agora Verkehrswende, Carl-Friedrich Elmer works on different economic topics related to the transition of the transport sector, such as cost-effective pathways for decarbonizing freight transport or reform options to align the fiscal system with set climate targets.
