Dyami supports E3’s DER group, contributing to E3’s diverse work on distributed energy resources. Working with an E3 team supporting Southern California Edison, Mr. Andrews evaluated the costs & benefits of various building electrification projects. During his work on E3’s California 2025 Codes & Standards Support he has led the development on a toolkit to accurately and repeatably produce load profiles for any segment of the US building stock down to the census tract level. Additionally, he has evaluated business opportunities for new players in the residential solar & storage market with E3’s Asset Valuation group. Dyami joined E3 in 2021 from Gridscape Solutions, a smart energy solutions company.

Motivated by the salience of the climate crisis, Dyami draws inspiration from tackling hard to solve problems. While there are many interlinked aspects that define this crisis, Dyami believes energy is at its heart. While mitigation efforts may eventually be needed, he is committed to prevention efforts that focus on weaning reducing heavy hydrocarbon usage. At E3, Dyami enjoys working in the fine details of energy usage modelling, aiming to provide a strong backbone upon which further analysis & decision-making can happen. In his work he prides himself not only on the accuracy of his results, but also on paving the way for others who will use the same tools.

When he is not too busy with work, Dyami is either working on his artwork, tending to his many plants, or pursuing his many other hobbies. He is currently in the process of designing and 3D printing a large format camera and has recently started bouldering and surfing.

New York City Long-Term Energy Plan | New York City Mayor’s Office of Climate and Environmental Justice, 2022-2023

E3 led a team completing an inclusive, year-long study to identify the policies and programs needed to achieve the New York City’s decarbonization goals. E3’s analysis involved both examining policies and programs to meet the city’s long-term goals as well as providing specific recommendations for actions to be taken during the current administration. The study included eight research branches focused on the performance and cost of heat pumps in new buildings; the affordability of electrification retrofits in rent-regulated housing; the opportunities for electric school bus managed charging and vehicle-to-grid; the potential for in-city wind energy; a screening of public lands for new clean energy development; an assessment of the electric grid readiness for increasing heat pump and EV charging loads; and an evaluation of how bulk energy storage could reduce reliance on in-city fossil generation. Based on E3’s study, New York City published PowerUp NYC, the city’s first Long-Term Energy Plan, which includes 29 clean energy initiatives focused on the city’s energy grid, its buildings, and its transportation sector. Many aspects of the PowerUp NYC, from research topic selection to recommendations, were developed in collaboration with the public, and with the public’s interest at the forefront of the decision-making process. The recommendations of the LTEP are aligned with long-term energy and equity policy mandates from both the city and state and revolve around the needs of NYC residents.
