Danny Broberg, a clean energy specialist with the Bipartisan Policy Center, is joining the Department of Energy as a senior adviser.

Broberg will take a period of leave from the Washington-based think tank to serve in DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management. The office is key to the Biden administration’s efforts to boost carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon dioxide removal as part of a plan to achieve a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.

The Bipartisan Policy Center confirmed the move and said Friday was Broberg’s last day as associate director of the group’s energy program.


“Danny’s expertise in a broad range of carbon management technologies and their deployment pathways positions him to help DOE effectively implement its agenda,” Sasha Mackler, the executive director of BPC’s energy program, said in a statement. Broberg, he added, “has spearheaded many policy initiatives and led stakeholder engagement while at BPC and understands the engineering and commercial challenges the DOE programs are designed to overcome.”
