Granholm would be the second female U.S. energy secretary after Hazel O’Leary served under former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Trump’s second, Dan Brouillette, was a former lobbyist for Ford Motor Co and a state energy regulator in Louisiana.
Granholm also beat out Arun Majumdar, the first director of the department’s agency that promotes and funds research and development of advanced energy technologies, and Ernest Moniz who was energy secretary during the Obama administration.
