Senate Confirms Nominees for Interior, DOE

Abstract:
Filling some of the remaining holes in the Obama administration's energy and environmental team, the Senate yesterday confirmed one Interior and two Energy department nominees.

The Senate unanimously approved Marcia McNutt to be science adviser to the Interior secretary and the first woman director of the U.S. Geological Survey; Arun Majumdar to direct the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E); and Jose Antonio Garcia to be director of DOE's Office of Minority Economic Impact.

Majumdar, a native of India, is an engineering and materials science professor at the University of California, Berkeley. His areas of interest include energy efficiency technology and using nanotechnology to harness energy lost as heat during electricity production, according to the Lawrence Berkeley lab.
