Presidential nominee Joe Biden has outlined an extensive and comprehensive plan for clean energy in the United States. The plan details how new infrastructure, energy-efficient practices and technologies, and investments in research and development will help make the country the world’s leader in clean energy. Some of the ideas outlined include the construction of 1.5 million affordable and energy-efficient houses, retrofits to existing buildings, accelerating the adoption of zero-emission vehicles, and ensuring environmental justice by providing clean water and reducing the leakage of toxic chemicals in communities.
With the ever-increasing challenges of climate change and depletion of the earth’s natural resources, this is a pivotal moment to focus on developing sustainable technologies and optimizing our energy use. OptikW can be a part of this energy revolution by optimizing HVAC systems and saving money for businesses across the country. OptikW utilizes a proven algorithm that does not require any new equipment and creates 15-40% energy savings on HVAC costs. This technology shows the Energy Intelligence Center’s dedication to sustainability and energy optimization and can help save businesses money through reduced electricity bills.

“Biden has set a goal of achieving a 100 percent clean-energy economy and net-zero emissions by the year 2050. In order to avoid the worst climate-related outcomes, recent research shows that carbon emissions must drop by 50 percent by 2030, and then reach net zero (or the process in which any emissions are balanced by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere, through processes like planting new forests or utilizing direct air capture technology) by mid-century.
His plan, which would cost $2 trillion over four years, also calls for making the power sector carbon pollution-free by 2035, revolutionizing the railroad system and municipal transit networks, initiating the construction of 1.5 million sustainable homes and housing units, creating net-zero emissions standard for all new commercial buildings by 2030, and reforming and extending tax incentives in order to generate energy efficiency and clean energy jobs.
To pay for this, Biden will increase the corporate income tax rate to 28 percent from 21 percent and use some still-undetermined amount of stimulus money, according to The New York Times.”
