    New Energy Secretary Was a USEC Advisor

    This is positive for USEC:
    WASHINGTON — USEC officials on Monday applauded President Barack Obama’s nomination of Ernest Moniz to be the new Energy Secretary —and it’s no wonder.

    Moniz has been familiar with the company for years and served as a strategic adviser to USEC, which is developing the American Centrifuge Project in Piketon.

    Moniz, an MIT physics professor , was a member of USEC’s Strategic Advisory Council from 2002 to 2004, a paid position he had shortly after leaving an earlier stint with the Department of Energy in the Clinton White House.

    “Dr. Moniz’s distinguished career as a scientist, educator and a public servant provide a solid foundation for him to serve as energy secretary,” USEC spokesman Paul Jacobson said in a statement Monday after Obama’s announcement. “Dr. Moniz has been an important advocate for the advancement of nuclear energy as a method to address carbon emissions and climate change and is familiar with uranium enrichment technologies.”
