Andrew Solfest joined E3 in 2022 and supports E3’s Climate Pathways and Electrification practice. He has worked primarily on transportation and building electrification projects, involving the use of E3’s EVGrid and RESTORE models. Andrew previously worked with Xcel Energy’s energy efficiency and renewables team, administering Midwest community solar programs, coordinating project development, and helping institutional and residential customers achieve their clean energy goals. Prior to joining E3, Andrew completed an M.P.A. in Environmental Science and Policy at Columbia University, where he researched decarbonization pathways for the United States and developing nations.

Andrew was drawn to E3 for its data-driven approach to solving energy and environmental issues, and for its reputation of providing detailed analyses considering both social and economic factors. Andrew is passionate about addressing climate change through deep decarbonization and views it as a core equity concern which requires balanced input and good-faith collaboration from all sectors.

Outside of work, Andrew enjoys spending time outdoors and studying languages and history. When unable to indulge his love for international travel, he occupies his free time by trying out new recipes.
