Nicolas Thorpe

Climate & Energy Program Associate

Nick Thorpe is based in Washington, D.C., as the Climate & Energy Program Associate. Previously, Nick was a Litigation Assistant for the Clean Energy Program, supporting the team on cases at the national and state level — at public utility commissions, and in state and federal courts — to advance clean energy deployment and transition to a 100% clean energy future. Nick has enjoyed getting to work on cases in close to 20 states, ranging from appealing a statutory interpretation in New Mexico to receiving a victory on a Louisiana Open Meetings Law complaint concerning meetings held on the approval of a dirty gas plant.

Nick participated in the Spring 2018 cohort of the Clean Energy Leadership Institute, a non-profit that brings together a group of clean energy advocates to connect, educate, and focus on a clean energy transition.

Before joining Earthjustice in November 2017, Nick was a community organizer for Texas Campaign for the Environment in Dallas, TX and worked on environment and trade issues for a local environmental NGO in Hanoi, Vietnam as part of the Luce Scholars Program. Nick graduated from Rice University in 2015 with a B.A. in Political Science and Environmental Policy, and initially got involved and interested in environment and clean energy while studying in the oil and gas capital of the world — Houston, TX.

Outside of work, Nick enjoys exploring our nation’s capital and the surrounding areas, playing tennis, cooking Venezuelan food, traveling, and watching comedic TV shows and movies.
