Jun Zhang joined E3’s distributed energy resources group in 2018. His work focuses on enhancing E3’s modeling capabilities and user interfaces, especially for RESTORE, E3’s energy storage dispatch model. He also helped lead development of E3’s new electric vehicle load shape tool, which he has used to forecast EV loads with granular time and location data in order to calculate the benefits of vehicle-grid integration (VGI). He has also used RESTORE to estimate potential storage revenues in the California and New York markets for several E3 clients.
Jun brings extensive research and modeling experience in electricity system analysis, including residential demand, solar PV potential, and renewable integration. As an EDF Climate Corps fellow at Dartmouth College, he helped design and implement the Green Labs program on campus.
Jun’s passion for the environment spurred his educational and professional focus.
