Jordan Shenhar joined E3’s Asset Valuation practice area in 2022 after earning his master’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. At Columbia, Jordan worked on power sector-related research and consulting projects at the Center on Global Energy Policy and completed a capstone with Advanced Energy Economy, where he evaluated V2G integration strategies for electric school buses in the U.S. Sunbelt. In his prior roles at Savion Energy and the Green Investment Group at Macquarie, Jordan advised on M&A and tax equity transactions and led project execution efforts for utility-scale solar, wind, and battery storage facilities.

Jordan’s lifelong passion for wildlife conservation led him towards the renewables industry as an undergraduate at the University of Texas, where he learned about the challenges of operating a carbon-free power grid while studying tropical ecology in Costa Rica. At E3, he is excited to tackle questions at the intersection of project development, public policy, and grid optimization, with the goal of helping decisionmakers accelerate the transition to a decarbonized economy.

Outside of work, Jordan enjoys reading, cooking, spending time in nature, and being disappointed by his beloved New York Mets.

Projects

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.
