Sumin Wang joined E3’s distributed energy resources group in 2019, where she helps utilities, developers, system operators, and state agencies solve challenges related to renewables integration. Her work focuses on modeling and analyzing the economics of renewables to achieve carbon reduction goals and improve system resiliency.
Sumin recently earned her Master of Environmental Management degree from Duke University. As an intern with Rocky Mountain Institute, she built an optimization model to identify least-cost electrification strategies for communities in Africa. In summer 2018, as an EDF Climate Corps Fellow in China, she quantified the emissions reduction potential of improving the energy efficiency of household appliances.
Sumin is passionate about decarbonization and enthusiastic about joining a company that unites her interests and education in energy, economics, and the environment. A native of China, she hopes her work will ultimately promote best practices around the world.
On weekends, Sumin enjoys hiking and camping, spending time with friends, and volunteering.
