Sam Gomberg is an energy analyst based in the Midwest office of the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). He advocates for responsible energy policies that support the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency resources, and that result in significant reductions of global warming emissions.
Before joining UCS, Mr. Gomberg worked as the Tennessee Valley Energy policy manager for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE), an organization that promotes clean energy solutions throughout the southeastern United States. At SACE, Mr. Gomberg engaged directly with utilities, lawmakers and key stakeholders to advance energy efficiency and renewable energy as viable alternatives to the coal-fired generation that has historically dominated the electricity sector in most southeastern states. Before working at SACE, Mr. Gomberg clerked for the Environmental Protection Agency Region 9, working on issues surrounding Superfund cleanup activities, and for various nonprofit environmental organizations on issues ranging from coastal zone management to corporate sustainability.
Mr. Gomberg holds a B.S. in environmental science from the University of Florida, a masters degree in environmental management from Duke University and a Juris Doctor from Lewis and Clark School of Law.
