The White House, err, Trump has nominated cabinet level positions to the Department of Energy.

Why is this important?

These nominees would bring a heavy tilt toward utility interests and big investment interests on board if confirmed by the Senate.

Here are the nominees:

Mark Wesley Menezes of Virginia to be Under Secretary of the Department of Energy. Mr. Menezes is Vice President of Federal Relations for Berkshire Hathaway Energy, a diversified energy company. Before joining Berkshire, Mr. Menezes was a partner at Hunton & Williams heading its energy practice group.

Paul Dabbar of New York to be Under Secretary for Science, Department of Energy. Mr. Dabbar is Managing Director for Mergers & Acquisitions for J.P. Morgan, and has over $400 billion in investment experience across all energy sectors including solar, wind, geothermal, distributed-generation, utility, LNG, pipeline, oil & gas, trading, energy technology, and has also led the majority of all nuclear transactions.
