Michael Sontag joined E3 in 2016. He develops models to explore grid integration of renewable energy; retail rate design; and the value of distributed energy technologies such as energy efficiency, storage, and flexible loads. His expertise encompasses demand-side resources, energy modeling in commercial buildings, and data analytics. He has also worked as a product manager for a sustainable building materials company and as an energy efficiency engineer.
Michael believes that sustainable global energy consumption is the moonshot of the 21st century. He is pleased to help illuminate the path forward and sees great potential value for flexible loads, a resource that remains largely untapped.
