Featured Speakers

We’re proud to announce two outstanding featured speakers for this year’s event. Join us in the Opening Plenary and Closing Plenary, where they will outline the critical role the federal government can play in making the American energy economy more equitable and climate-resilient.

Secretary Granholm

Jennifer M. Granholm was sworn in as the 16th Secretary of Energy on February 25, 2021, becoming just the second woman to lead the U.S. Department of Energy. Secretary Granholm will lead the Department in helping America achieve President Biden’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 by advancing cutting-edge clean energy technologies, creating millions of good-paying union clean energy jobs, and building an equitable clean energy future. Secretary Granholm also oversees DOE’s core missions of promoting American leadership in scientific discovery, maintaining the nuclear deterrent and reducing nuclear danger, and remediating the environmental harms caused by legacy defense programs.

Kelly Speakes Backman

Kelly Speakes-Backman is the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary and Acting Assistant Secretary for DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). In her role, she leads and directs the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, focused on creating and sustaining American leadership in the transition to a global clean energy economy. She oversees the planning and execution of the organization’s $2.8B portfolio of research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainable transportation.  

In addition to this great opportunity to hear directly from DOE leadership on the Biden Administration’s priorities, Energy Exchange offers a venue for federal energy and management experts to identify new and emerging technologies, share their expertise, and ensure that smart infrastructure investments help mitigate the effects of a changing climate.
