Lakshmi Alagappan joined E3 in 2008. She directs our long-term planning group and manages much of the high-voltage transmission analysis.
Lakshmi led the benefits analyses for several high-voltage transmission projects that the California ISO approved. These analyses helped shape the process that California agencies use to evaluate the need for transmission projects. She has also assisted independent transmission companies with bids to construct new projects under FERC Order 1000. Her recent clients include CAISO, Pacific Gas and Electric, and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners.
Within E3’s international practice, Lakshmi conducts market valuation and strategic analysis for developers, utilities, and government agencies. She is currently leading a project on regulatory assistance for renewable integration in India. She has worked extensively throughout the Western and Eastern Interconnections and in Mexico.
Raised in New York City, Lakshmi is excited about bringing E3’s services to the northeastern U.S. She enjoys working with some of the brightest minds—both colleagues and clients—on many of the most exciting and leading-edge projects in the constantly evolving electricity industry.
Education: MS, civil and environmental engineering; and BA, economics, Stanford University
