Mr. Hagerty specializes in planning and regulatory matters related to the electric power system in an increasingly decarbonized future.
His expertise includes long-term generation and storage resource planning, transmission planning and development, and electrification of transportation and heating. Mr. Hagerty has experience working on matters related to electric vehicle adoption and system impact analysis; renewable resource, generation, and storage asset valuation; decarbonization policies; and transmission benefit-cost analysis.
He has assisted a wide range of stakeholders – including electric utilities, generation and transmission developers, state agencies and commissions, automakers, and regional transmission organizations (RTOs) – in understanding and evaluating strategic questions related to the clean energy transition. This has included planning the buildout of the transmission network, assessing the future generation resource mix, and analyzing the pace and impact of electric vehicle (EV) and heating electrification adoption. He has also forecasted scenarios for the deployment of EV charging infrastructure necessary to meet increasing demand and customer adoption of greenhouse gas-reducing technologies, such as electric heat pumps, energy efficiency, and rooftop solar.
Mr. Hagerty has submitted testimony to state and federal commissions related to generation resource additions to achieve decarbonization goals, electric vehicle infrastructure needs, transmission planning processes and benefits analysis, and electricity market design. For the US Department of Energy, he has reviewed and outlined major issues facing the country’s electric power infrastructure.
Prior to joining Brattle, Mr. Hagerty was a research assistant at the MIT Energy Initiative, an oil refinery process engineer at Honeywell, and a research chemist at GE Global Research.
