Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm voiced support on Wednesday for transitioning the military to exclusively rely upon electric vehicles before 2030.

Granholm affirmed her faith in the Biden administration proposal in a hearing for the Senate Armed Services Committee in which Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) pressed her on whether the policy would hinder the lethality of the military. She insisted that electrification would decrease vulnerability to worldwide turbulence in the fossil fuel sector.

“I do think that reducing our reliance on the volatility of globally traded fossil fuels, where we know that global events such as the war in Ukraine can jack up prices for people back home does not contribute to energy security,” she commented. “I think energy security is achieved when we have home-grown, clean energy that is abundant.”
