Jared Landsman joined E3 in 2021 to support the DER group. At E3, Jared works primarily on building electrification and decarbonization, from a technical, policy and economic lens. Jared has developed a number of models to forecast heat pump adoption, on both a regional and national scale, as well as help cities and states understand the consumer and utility impacts of building electrification.  Jared also does work in campus decarbonization, helping universities achieve their net zero emissions targets.

Jared has been passionate about sustainability his whole life and has made it a priority to work for a mission-driven company where he can have a real impact on the world.  He is particularly interested in how to enable equitable electrification and make sure everyone has access to clean energy.

Prior to joining E3, Jared worked at the MEP engineering firm, Integral Group, leading the Building Performance team, with a focus on energy and carbon modeling, policy and guideline development, and demand forecasting. He has extensive experience with building-scale electrification and decarbonization.

Outside of work, Jared enjoys spending time in nature, particularly hiking and skiing up in the mountains.

Education: M.S., Architecture, Building Science, and Sustainability, University of California, Berkeley; B.S., Civil Engineering, Cornell University.


Time-dependent valuation for building codes | CEC, 1999–present

E3 supports the California Energy Commission (CEC) in implementing the state building energy code by maintaining the economic framework for energy standard requirements and allowed trade-offs for new construction. We have worked with the CEC and its stakeholders since 1999 to continually refine a time-dependent valuation (TDV) methodology, and we are now under contract to support the 2025 Title 24 Update. The TDV methodology uses a 30-year forecast of the social cost of energy that varies hourly and by location to account for shifts in system peaks over time, and regional variations in climate and grid utilization. . E3’s initial study investigated a shift to a value-based standard that accounts for the time and geographic differences in energy costs seen in California energy prices, natural gas and propane markets, as well as in the costs of electric utility distribution and transmission systems. TDV was initially adopted in 2005, and E3 supported the updates in 2008, 2013, 2016, 2019, and 2022.
