Advanced Energy United Urges Senate to Ensure Full Contingent at FERC

Posted by Adam Winer on Mar 20, 2024

WASHINGTON, DC – National business association Advanced Energy United released the following statement of support prior to the commencement of Confirmation Hearings for nominees David Rosner, Judy Chang, and Lindsay See to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) before the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee.

"FERC plays an essential role ensuring that the U.S. has an affordable and reliable energy system, which is especially critical as we swiftly transition toward a 100 percent advanced energy economy,” said Caitlin Marquis, Managing Director at Advanced Energy United. "FERC is most capable of deliberating on the vital and complex issues before it when it has a full contingent of Commissioners. As such, we welcome the work of this committee and the Senate as a whole to swiftly consider these nominations from President Biden."

"Ms. Chang’s long and distinguished career in the energy sector, and her demonstrated ability to work in a bipartisan manner, makes her supremely well suited to address the key issues that arise from the energy transition and forge consensus. In a similar vein, Mr. Rosner’s experience across a wide variety of industry matters and in a variety of venues, including at FERC, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Senate, leave him well-equipped to tackle the most complex and important issues in before the energy sector today. Ms. See is an accomplished lawyer, we look forward to learning more about her views on the role of FERC in the energy transition during the nomination process, and to working with her and the other nominees should they be confirmed to the Commission. We urge the Senate to carefully consider these nominees and move swiftly to ensure that FERC has a full contingent of Commissioners so that America’s energy transition continues apace, providing reliable, clean, and affordable energy to all Americans."
