Lucas Nelsen
Senior Policy Associate
Policy Program

I’m a native of Norfolk, Nebraska, and I graduated from Wayne State College in 2012 with a degree in political science. At the Center, I’ve been immersed in clean energy development.

I’ve written several of the Center’s renewable energy reports, and feel privileged that I am one of the staff who meets with rural people to get their perspective on how to make new projects beneficial to local communities.

When I’m not working for the Center, you can find me helping local high school speech and debate teams prepare for competition.
