Statement from U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz on New Leadership at NREL

“The Department of Energy welcomes Dr. Martin Keller as the new director of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Martin’s track record in building links between the basic sciences and our Nation’s energy challenges will help NREL reinforce its place as the world’s leading laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development.

“I would also like to thank Dr. Dan E. Arvizu for his excellent service of more than 10 years as NREL director. As director, Dan helped to bolster America's research efforts in renewable energy and energy efficiency, and Martin will continue that effort, further advancing America's low-carbon economy. We look forward to seeing the important innovations NREL will put forth in our national interest under this renewal of strong leadership.”
