Nathan Woofter is a senior undergraduate studying physics at Princeton University. He is passionate about the future of clean energy technology. Nathan hopes that, through his work, he can bring attention to the communities that would be most impacted by a transition to clean energy. He wants to explore ways to generate more opportunities for vulnerable communities during a shift to clean energy.
A just transition from coal to nuclear energy production requires developers to listen and respond to local communities’ concerns and needs through the process of planning, siting, licensing, design, construction, and eventual decommissioning.
