Thank You Dr. Chu !
Dr. Steven Chu has headed the Department of Energy in the Obama administration since his appointment in 2009. Dr. Chu recently announced that he will resign his position after his replacement is confirmed this spring. Dr. Chu has served as Secretary of Energy since the beginning of the Obama administration and expects to return teaching and research in California. Prior to his appointment, he served as the director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory, and was a professor at UC Berkeley’s Department of Physics and Department of Molecular and Cell Biology. Dr. Chu is the co-recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics (1997). Clearly, Dr. Chu is one of the most innovative Energy secretaries that the U.S. government has ever had. In his departure letter to DOE employees he outlined the range of accomplishments. A very impressive list it is.
THANK YOU Dr. Chu for your leadership, scholarship and expertise. You have redirected America’s path to a smart energy future. It’s up to us now to carry on.
