WASHINGTON, D.C.— Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading voice for sensible energy and environmental policies for families and businesses, issued the following statement today following the confirmation of President Biden’s nominee, Jennifer Granholm, to serve as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy.
“We congratulate Secretary Granholm on her confirmation and applaud President Biden for this nomination. As the former Michigan governor who helped Detroit’s auto sector weather a financial downturn by ably balancing environmental and economic priorities, she will be a good leader for the Department of Energy,” CEA President David Holt said.
“The Secretary of Energy plays a critically important role in ensuring families and businesses have access to affordable, reliable energy – both from an environmental and economic perspective. We look forward to working closely with Secretary Granholm to develop America’s environmentally sustainable energy future, while also promoting energy’s critical role in the economy and the support it gives to the supply chains vital to families and businesses that depend on them.”
