Henry M. Goldberg is originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona. He obtained his Ph.D. in Operations Research from Cornell University. He was a professor at the University of Alberta and visiting professor at Stanford University in the late 1970's and early 1980's researching North American energy markets and policy issues. Some of his major accomplishments during this period were: working with a colleague at the University of Alberta to build the BALANCE model of long-term Canadian energy supply and demand, developing the dynamic equilibrium energy modeling methodology to integrate supply and demand at consistent prices over times, quantifying the economic benefits to Canada of moving to world pricing for oil and natural gas, analyzing Canadian natural gas export policy to the U.S. and the benefits of deregulation, and organizing important conferences of policymakers in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico on the North American natural gas trade. He has also been a systems engineer, strategic planner, and market analyst in the telecommunications industry working at AT&T Bell Labs, Nortel Networks, Industry Canada, and Reed Elsevier.
He authored the freelance article "Creating an American Infrastructure Investment Strategy" (posted in the OurEnergyPolicy.org Resources section), which describes the benefits/costs and infrastructure strategies required to address the energy/global warming crisis. In 2012, he was part of a task group that wrote "Arizona's Strategic Plan for Digital Capacity". which examines the long-term benefits of digital capacity development for the state of Arizona and the necessary digital infrastructure directions to achieve this. He has been a participant in OurEnergyPolicy.org since April 2009.
