Tory Clark leads projects focusing on U.S. state-level climate policy, energy infrastructure planning, and low-carbon technologies. She provides clients with rigorous technical modeling as well as practical, accessible translations of complex analyses to inform energy and climate policy.
Tory has extensive experience helping U.S. states chart policy pathways to reach long-term greenhouse gas reduction goals, both within and outside the electricity sector. Two recent projects identified measures to reduce transportation sector emissions in line with state targets for the Minnesota Dept. of Transportation and illustrated the role of Minnesota’s electricity sector in decarbonizing the state’s economy as part of Xcel Energy’s 2019 Integrated Resource Plan. She has also led E3 projects for the California Air Resources Board, Maryland Dept. of the Environment, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and Oregon Dept. of Environmental Quality, among others.
Tory likes knowing that her work is helping policy makers, utilities, and investors lay the foundation for a low-carbon economy. Before joining E3 in 2015, she spent five years helping developing countries create long-term energy and climate plans using the LEAP model, an experience that impressed upon her the vital and varied roles that different regions will play in the global push toward deep decarbonization. She continues to work to help stakeholders understand their region’s role in the overall transition to climate mitigation policies, both in the U.S. and globally.
