CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has joined West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin to promote the state’s role in developing clean energy. A news conference was held Thursday in Morgantown to announce a collaboration that will build a ship to transport parts for U.S. offshore wind development projects. Steel for the ship is being manufactured in West Virginia. During her two-day visit, Granholm also is scheduled to tour an underground coal mine and a rare earth elements lab. She says her visit is a window into the opportunity for West Virginia to be a leader in the energy of the future.
