Anthony Fratto joined E3’s bulk grid group in 2019, where he helps clients prepare for a high renewables future. This includes evaluations of the current and future markets in a changing energy landscape. Anthony serves as market manager for ERCOT and technical lead on all other major energy markets in the U.S. Anthony applies this market analysis to asset valuation projects that require revenue stream and benefits analysis, due diligence for sales and purchases, off-taker assessments, as well as market rules and bidding strategies. In addition, Anthony’s work spans a wide interest in resource and Tx planning, future of hydrogen, and electrification adoption for both private and government clients.

During his educational career Anthony had stints in research labs and private industry, as well as fellowships with the Bureau of Land Management, the Utah Governor’s Office of Energy Development, and Iberdrola’s Global Regulation Department.

WRI United States Decarbonization Scenarios | World Resources Institute, 2021

E3 worked with the World Resources Institute (WRI) to develop four scenarios of increasing ambition to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across all sectors of the United States economy using E3’s US PATHWAYS and RESOLVE models. E3 collaborated with WRI to develop robust scenario definitions, collect publicly available data and assumptions, and create interactive spreadsheet results. The goal of the study was to understand the effect of high-impact federal policies on achieving 50% emissions reduction by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050. The analysis demonstrates the importance of key near-term building blocks, including: 1) aligning economics for customers and companies to adopt clean energy technologies; 2) aligning policy and institutions to remove barriers to technology deployment; 3) increasing consumer awareness and education to unlock higher levels of adoption; and 4) creating a transition plan for fossil fuel jobs to ensure a smooth transition.
