Michaela Levine joined E3 in 2020 after completing her master’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. She works primarily in E3’s distributed energy resources practice area to help utilities, states, and municipalities meet decarbonization goals through transportation and building electrification.

Michaela sees climate change as one of the biggest challenges of our time and is passionate about building a more just society through the clean energy transition. Michaela was drawn to E3 by the opportunity to work on impactful projects that are analytically rigorous.

Prior to joining E3, Michaela researched electric vehicle grid integration as a research assistant at SLAC National Accelerator and an intern at Weave Grid. As a sustainability fellow at the Burlington Electric Department, she researched best practices in integrated resource planning and explored opportunities for the utility to better leverage distributed energy resources.

Outside of work, Michaela enjoys hockey, skiing, biking, and hiking.

New York Distributed Solar Roadmap | NYSERDA, 2021

Working with the New York Department of Public Service (DPS) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), E3 supported the development of a new roadmap for New York to achieve the installation of at least 10 Gigawatts of distributed solar by 2030. The roadmap lays out a path that will expand renewable energy in New York, generating enough clean energy to power 700,000 additional homes, while also prioritizing an equitable expansion of New York’s distributed solar infrastructure. E3 contributed to the distributed solar framework by providing analysis that informed the plan’s policy recommendations. E3 developed a supply curve model for distributed solar projects in New York and used this model to evaluate program costs for different incentive program options. The analysis was used to inform the roadmap’s ultimate recommendation to extend the current NY-Sun Megawatt Block incentive program to help achieve the 10 GW target.
