Senate Confirms Granholm as Energy Secretary

She will have a key role in the climate agenda.

In a bipartisan 64-35 vote, the Senate confirmed President Biden’s nominee for Energy Secretary, Jennifer Granholm. She said she is planning to focus the Energy Department on producing the development of electric vehicles and other clean energy technologies, such as wind turbines and batteries, as a way to revive the manufacturing base and create new jobs.

During her confirmation hearing, Granholm said, “I believe that I was nominated by President Biden because I am obsessed with creating good-paying jobs in America.”

She is a former governor of Michigan and is best known for working with the Obama Administration on the 2009 bailout of auto companies after the Great Recession.
