Biden to nominate former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, former EPA Chief Gina McCarthy for energy and climate posts

President-elect Joe Biden is expected to soon announce his choices for two crucial positions in his administration — the Secretary of Energy and the White House climate coordinator.

According to NPR and Politico, Biden has chosen former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm to lead the Department of Energy and former EPA Chief Gina McCarthy to spearhead domestic climate policy.

Granholm served two terms as Michigan’s governor and supports a U.S. transition to zero carbon, according to Politico. She’s worked closely with the auto industry and could use those relationships to speed up electric vehicle deployment and infrastructure.

McCarthy previously served in President Barack Obama’s EPA and is currently the CEO of the Natural Resources Defense Council. She believes climate and clean energy should be considered in every department of Biden’s administration.

McCarthy would work as the domestic counterpart to global climate czar John Kerry.
