Lacey Shaver is the Senior Manager of City Clean Energy within WRI's U.S. Energy Program. She designs and manages technical assistance and capacity-building programs for cities, counties, school districts, community-based organizations, and universities to help them make progress towards their climate and clean energy goals.

She has a particular interest in creative program design and facilitation to drive impact and a commitment to integrating equity in local sustainability efforts. She organizes cohorts of local leaders working on similar clean energy and electrification strategies, develops tools and resources, and runs trainings and peer learning events to help cities decarbonize their electricity supply, electrify their transportation systems, and bring the benefits of clean energy to all.

Prior to WRI, Lacey managed education and outreach for the LEED for Cities and Communities program at the U.S. Green Building Council and launched the STAR Community Rating System, the first U.S. framework and certification program for local governments to benchmark community-wide sustainability performance. Lacey has also conducted analyses of local climate and hazard mitigation planning at The Nature Conservancy; developed data management strategies for community organizing, fundraising, and marketing at Greenpeace; and performed spatial analysis of land use and energy reliance for the Foundation for Environmental Security and Sustainability.

Lacey holds a BA in International Studies from the University of Mississippi and a MPA in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University. She lives in Washington, DC with her husband and young daughter and spends her free time exploring bike trails, checking out new breweries, and cheering on the Nats.
