The American Clean Power Association (ACP) today issued the following statement after the Senate confirmed Jennifer Granholm as U.S. Energy Secretary.
“American Clean Power congratulates Secretary Granholm on taking the helm of the Department of Energy. Having worked on energy policy with Secretary Granholm, I know that she is committed to the Biden administration’s interlinked goals of boosting the U.S. economy and combating climate change, and the new Secretary well understands the importance of building transmission infrastructure to unlock renewable energy potential and help meet America’s climate needs. The clean power industry looks forward to working closely with Secretary Granholm and her team to accelerate clean energy research, development, and deployment, while creating jobs for American workers and investing in American communities.” – Heather Zichal, ACP CEO
