Aaron Burdick joined E3 in 2019 and helps E3 clients solve technical and policy challenges related to renewable energy integration. He joined E3 from utility Pacific Gas & Electric, where he led the development of PG&E’s 2018 Integrated Resource Plan and provided leadership on decarbonization efforts and renewable energy strategy. Before attending graduate school, Aaron spent four years at energy consultancy ICF International. He has also conducted energy analysis and provided strategic advice to non-profit environmental organizations.

Aaron sees climate change as the defining issue of our generation and one that will impact all who come after us. As someone who loves complex, interdisciplinary challenges with direct real-world impacts, Aaron finds developing climate solutions in the energy sector a natural fit. He was drawn to E3 both for its thought leadership and the breadth of its involvement in all sides of the energy transition.

An accomplished nature photographer and poet, Aaron hails from a musical family and is currently teaching himself to play the mandolin.
