Busy first day for new Energy Dept. chief

Moniz said he’s glad to be back. “The Department of Energy enjoys a talented, dedicated and diverse workforce,” Moniz said in an email to DOE staff. “In the coming weeks and months, I look forward to reconnecting with old colleagues and hope to meet many other members of our exceptional team.”

The same message lays out his agenda in broad strokes.

“I look forward to the progress we will make together in the coming years – advancing the President’s all-of-the-above energy strategy, maintaining the nuclear deterrent and reducing the nuclear danger, promoting American leadership in science and clean energy technology innovation, and cleaning up the legacy of the Cold War,” Moniz said.
