Recent ActivitiesDavid White is a consulting engineer specializing in computer-based analysis of energy and environmental systems. He has a Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Civil Engineering Systems specializing in environmental studies, and B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics. He has had over 20 years' experience as a consultant focusing primarily on energy and environmental issues with a a focus on utility company operations with the MIT Energy Laboratory, Tellus Institute and Synapse. He has undertaken a wide range of U.S. and international studies evaluating energy usage, developing energy forecasts, evaluating conservation opportunities and assessing environmental impacts.
In addition to engineering and statistical analysis, Dr. White has designed and developed over the years a number of computer models for evaluating energy and environmental systems many of which are still in active use. Some recent computer models have been EXMOD for evaluating the impacts and externalties from power plants, and ELMO for evaluating the market power potential of electric utility systems. Other recent work has been the development of a methodology for tracking the environmental characteristics associated with deregulated electricity sales which is being considered by a number of ISO's. The results of these models have provided the basis for a number of reports and testimonies.
Dr. White has also worked on a number of non-energy software development projects and has taught computer software and modeling courses at a number of Boston area universities.
