Careers at E3

Featured Image

When you join the E3 team, you’ll be working on some of the most important issues of the day with some of the best minds in the electricity industry. We help shape policy, play vital roles in regulatory proceedings, advise executives, and inform investment and planning decisions. You’ll also have a good time.

Opportunity

E3 provides abundant opportunities for professional growth. We’re highly collaborative, but everyone is encouraged to pursue their own areas of interest. Any team member may play a significant role in a project, and recent grads work alongside senior partners. We combine ongoing mentoring with a yearlong training program that prepares new hires to work independently. We also have a competitive summer internship program; see below.

In any given day, you can jump from calculating California GHG emissions in 2030 to studying electric vehicle adoption in China to meeting with a breakthrough energy storage technology company.

Stability and growth

E3 has a stable base of long-term clients that is steadily growing. That creates ongoing opportunities for staff to develop as professionals and explore new topics; it also enables us to integrate new people into our firm.

Balance

We are analysts, engineers, scientists, economists, policy wonks, and planners. We are also runners, cyclists, dancers, readers, skiers, hikers, knitters, climbers, art lovers, photographers, beer brewers—and beer drinkers. We have families and friends. We want everyone at E3 to have a healthy balance between work, play, family, and other interests.

We host a weekly lunchtime speaker series in the office, along with quarterly urban adventures, which have taken us to San Francisco hot spots such as Mission Bowl and Urban Putt.

Benefits

E3 offers competitive, flexible benefits.

Are you a good fit?

We look for people who combine strong analytic skills with integrity and a passion for energy.

The strongest applicants have graduated from rigorous academic programs or have experience with other consulting firms. Senior staff typically have significant industry experience and hold advanced degrees in engineering, economics, business, or public policy.

Summer internships

E3 interns work alongside our staff on emerging energy topics. They may be able to develop a research project that could lead to future research or publication.

The program is highly competitive. Applicants must be in MA or PhD programs in science, engineering, economics, business, or public policy. Ideal candidates combine enthusiasm for their topics, academic excellence, and relevant work experience.

The application period typically runs December through January for the following summer.
