Presidential nominee Joe Biden has made the shift to clean energy in the United States a major point in his campaign. His 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.

"A Biden administration would look to re-enter the Paris Climate Agreement, an international pact negotiated during the Obama administration to fight global warming that Trump pulled away from saying it could hurt the U.S. economy. Biden’s view is that climate change is an existential threat to the planet, and that a transition from fossil fuels can be an economic opportunity if the United States moves fast enough to become a leader in the clean energy technology.
Trump’s administration has acted to weaken or eliminate emissions targets at every turn, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s softening of vehicle emissions standards, and its rescinding of Obama’s Clean Power Plan requiring cuts from the electric power industry. Transport and electricity together make up around half the country’s greenhouse gas emissions.
In contrast, Biden has vowed to bring U.S. emissions down to net zero by 2050, including bringing emissions from the power industry to net zero by 2035. The U.S. utility industry has already expressed skepticism about getting to net zero in 15 years, with many companies saying they are at a loss for how to achieve their own voluntary, less ambitious goals.
While European oil and gas companies like BP and Royal Dutch Shell have already begun implementing strategies for a global energy transition, U.S. majors like Exxon Mobil and Chevron have remained focused on the traditional energy business - sheltered politically by Trump’s leadership in Washington. A Biden presidency would unleash enormous pressure on U.S. majors to quickly become more green. Biden has expressed an interest in supporting climate-related lawsuits against the oil industry, and his running mate, Kamala Harris, has cited her record suing oil companies as Attorney General in California."
