E3's Managing Director, Ginger Elbaum, and Energy Storage Owner's Engineer, Jason Han, discuss Electric Vehicles in this first episode in the EV series. During this podcast, Jason and Ginger talk about the different types of electric vehicles: light- and heavy-duty, and the opportunities and challenges of adopting electric vehicles and the associated infrastructure.
Since this is a podcast about the top three takeaways, Jason provided his top three:
1) EVs are coming and so is the charging infrastructure and there's gonna be a lot of opportunities for us to improve on that.
2) As part of that infrastructure, there will be a lot of new ideas and innovations coming in that we'll have to adopt to keep up with the industry.
3) EVs provide a huge benefit to the United States and local hometowns in terms of air quality and sound in our local neighborhoods.
Join Ginger Elbaum, E3's Managing Director, and Chris Wright, E3's Executive Director and head of the Energy Storage Practice, as they look at the trends impacting the renewable energy sector.

Increasingly, shareholders and stakeholders want to know that the companies they are investing in share their values of sustainability and equity, and do not have ties to corruption, environmental destruction, or human rights abuses. These are not only ethical and humanitarian issues but pose financial risks as well. In this podcast, E3 dives into the context and anticipated regulatory changes in this area, with Carol Ho, E3’s environmental engineer.
One of the most compelling developments is the movement toward standardizing ESG metrics, which will be further solidified by the release of proposed rules from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding climate disclosures from public companies. Listen as Carol and Ginger discuss the SEC rules, reaction to the proposed rules, and ESG trends in other parts of the world.
In this episode of The Top 3 by E3, Ginger Elbaum, host of the podcast, and Chris Wright, E3's Energy Storage Executive Director, discuss highlights from the Energy Storage Summit held in Austin, Texas on March 23-24, 2022. E3 Consulting was proud to be a sponsor of the event and honored that Chris participated in two of the Summit's panels.
In this fast-moving discussion about energy storage, E3's Ginger Elbaum and Chris Wright talk about the trends that E3 is seeing in the marketplace, particularly with regard to lithium-ion batteries. Chris notes that the top three trends he sees are the following:
1) The Age of Energy Storage is here. Market structures (i.e. state incentives - ISO RTO are changing, FERC is changing the grid and the way we interact with the grid and the way we consume energy, etc.).
2) We're going to start seeing battery shortages and developers are going to have to look to other suppliers, not just tier one players. This will be the subject of an upcoming podcast.
3) Lithium-ion is king for the next five years or so while other longer duration options are developed.

In the third episode of the hydrogen series that is part of The Top Three by E3, Ginger Elbaum, managing director of E3, and Al Rettenmaier head of E3's oil, gas, and chemicals practice, discuss hydrogen as a vehicle fuel.
During this episode, Al and Ginger look at the use of hydrogen as a vehicle fuel, discussing where the market is at, where the market is expected to go, and what types of vehicles are available at this time.
Please join Al and Ginger for their discussion!
In this second episode of the Hydrogen Series, Al Rettenmaier and Ginger Elbaum discuss green hydrogen--how it is made, how it is used, what the economics are, and why it is considered the most valuable of the three classifications of hydrogen. We hope you can join Ginger and Al for their continuing discussion of hydrogen.
Join Ginger Elbaum, E3 Managing Director, and Jim Langel, Head of E3's Solar Practice, for a discussion of what's trending in the solar market and what headwinds the industry is facing.
One of the top trends we are seeing is that costs are going down, which hopefully put some money in everyone's pocket at the end of the day
The second trend is the challenge that everyone's facing at home: COVID-19. The pandemic has impacted the solar industry over the last year and a half by slowing down the supply chain and causing a labor shortage.
Thirdly, we are looking at the impact of having a new administration that is supportive of renewable energy and has already extended the ITC for a couple of years.
We hope you'll join us for this episode!
