Howard Gruenspecht, the acting administrator of the Energy Information Administration, is leaving the post at the end of August, he told staff in an email Aug. 15.
Gruenspecht has served as acting administrator of the Energy Department’s statistical arm since President Donald Trump took office Jan. 20. The EIA’s mission is to collect and analyze “independent and impartial” energy information and disseminate it to policymakers and the public.
“While no announcement has been made, I understand that the Administration is well along in the process of identifying a nominee. I’m hopeful that the new Administrator will be nominated and confirmed before the end of the calendar year,” Gruenspecht wrote.
He added that when he leaves, John Conti, currently EIA’s assistant administrator for energy analysis, will become acting administrator and deputy administrator. Conti has served in various roles within EIA and the Energy Department since 1980.
Gruenspecht has served as acting administrator three times under three different EIA administrators during his 14 years at the agency. He has been deputy administrator, the EIA’s No. 2 position, since 2003.
