From NPR:

Among his campaign promises, President-elect Donald Trump vowed to increase domestic energy production and roll back President Obama’s efforts to combat climate change. A lengthy questionnaire recently sent to the Department of Energy suggests that effort may dig deep.

Among the transition’s inquiries, NPR’s Jennifer Ludden reports:

“It wants to know who at the Department of Energy attended domestic and international climate talks. It wants emails about those conferences. It also asks about money spent on loan-guarantee programs for renewable energy. … The Trump team questionnaire also asks about the Energy Department’s role in the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump has called ‘stupid.’ And it asks for the 20 highest paid employees at the department’s national laboratories.”
