Caitlin McMahon

Caitlin McMahon joined E3 in 2022 and will support E3’s work in distributed energy resources. Prior to E3, Ms. McMahon completed research at Stanford while earning a master’s degree in Energy Resources Engineering. Her research focused on enhancing demand response in commercial buildings. She created data analytic tools and statistical models for processing experimental data from integrated campus HVAC systems, uncovering hidden inefficiencies, and maximizing system flexibility for demand response. She previously interned in the Grid Modernization group at National Grid and in the Electrical Engineering department at the New York Power Authority.

 From a young age, Caitlin has been passionate about the reliable and cost-effective transition to a clean energy sector. Caitlin’s interests stem from her undergraduate years at Union College, where she created models to optimize the campus microgrid. Caitlin’s internship experiences also shaped her drive to enable decarbonization of the electricity sector.

Outside of her work and research, Caitlin is interested in hiking, spending time outdoors and with family, and creating recipes.
