The Senate confirmed Dan Brouillette, acting secretary at the Department of Energy, to lead DOE on a full-time basis via a 70-15 bipartisan vote Tuesday. Brouillette, who will be sworn in at a later date, served as deputy secretary under the leadership of Rick Perry,  DOE said Monday.

President Trump nominated Brouillette for the top post in October.

"I am excited for what the future holds, as our department continues to make a lasting impact both domestically and around the world," he said.

His industry career has included roles as senior vice president and head of public policy at financial services company USAA and as VP at Ford Motor.
