Hugh Somerset joined E3 in 2022 after studying Energy Engineering at UC Berkeley with a focus on distribution grid planning and mitigation strategies of grid-caused wildfires. During his studies, Hugh worked in resource valuation at Ascend Analytics and siting DERs for deferring distribution grid investments at PG&E. These combined experiences have made Hugh excited about performing thoughtful and sound technical analysis to inform stakeholders to the energy transition.
Outside of work, Hugh can be found rock climbing or, for now, dancing Salsa and Lindy Hop. However, his ambitions are to become exactly decent at more dance forms than his fingers can count.
Education: BSc, Energy Engineering, University of California, Berkeley
