Energy Savings with OptikW


Presidential nominee Joe Biden has outlined an exhaustive plan for clean energy in the United States if elected in November. 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 challenges of global climate change and the 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.

"With support from federal lawmakers, changes under a President Biden could be more sweeping. While bipartisan backing for climate action is growing, Republicans on Capitol Hill remain resistant to wide-reaching policies. But clean energy has long enjoyed support from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

Regardless of whether Democrats win back the Senate in November, thus creating the potential for more significant climate legislation, Biden may be able to sign on both parties to certain clean energy initiatives, such as an extension of tax credits or research and development programs. Biden advocates often point to the former vice president’s history of working across the aisle.

'My former boss has a well-established record of bringing people together (in Congress) to get big things done,' said Kerry Duggan, a sustainability consultant and Biden adviser who served on the Biden-Sanders climate task force, in an email.

It will most likely be that track record of cooperation that helps Biden get any type of clean energy support passed that is tied to broader stimulus efforts, which will be an early priority of any presidential administration, as uncertainty abounds in current talks.

Biden has been 'very clear' in connecting economic and clean energy priorities, said Boundary Stone’s Hurlbut, suggesting that Biden might work with Congress on something similar to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act if elected.

'I saw firsthand Vice President Biden leading the Recovery Act, where we invested $90 billion into clean energy,' Hurlbut told Greentech Media. 'He witnessed firsthand that those investments had a major positive impact on the economy.'"
