Bracewell’s Scott Segal told S&P Global that former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm “has been a leader in the clean energy transition back in Michigan, addressing some of the same key issues that will confront the development and implementation of the Biden plan. In addition, she learned power sector issues by working with some of the most sophisticated utilities in the nation.”
As expected, President-elect Joe Biden on December 17 named Granholm as his energy secretary. If confirmed, Granholm would be the second woman to serve in that role.
