WASHINGTON, D.C. — Brad Crabtree, the nominee to serve as assistant secretary for the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management, and Willie Phillips, the nominee to join the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, both will bring critical expertise and commitments to the nation’s clean-energy and climate goals. The National Wildlife Federation urged the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which will take up their nominations next week, to swiftly send their nominations to the full Senate.
“If we’re serious about creating jobs, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and investing in responsibly sited, developed, and operated energy infrastructure, we need leaders like Brad Crabtree and Willie Phillips in the Biden Administration. Both nominees understand not only the need for U.S. climate leadership, but also how we need a 21st century grid and innovation agenda to get to net-zero,” Shannon Heyck-Williams, senior director of climate and energy policy at the National Wildlife Federation. “The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee should swiftly approve these eminently qualified nominees to their respective roles at the Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.”
