Hector Hurtado

Hector works with the propulsion team at Beta on motor design and validation. He grew up in Ecuador and came to the U.S. to pursue a degree in Electric Power Engineering, where he developed an interest in renewable energy and sustainability. Throughout his career, he has worked on the design and validation of rotating machines, wind turbines, microgrids, and utility-scale battery energy storage systems. Outside of work he enjoys playing softball, volleyball, hiking, biking, and spending time with friends in Vermont, as well as visiting his family back home whenever possible (particularly when it gets too cold in Vermont).
