Biden Announces $250 Million for Federal Agencies to Advance Net-Zero Projects
Through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Biden-Harris Administration announced $250 million in funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This is to help Federal agencies in the implementation of net-zero building projects and set examples in sustainability as the nation works towards its transition to clean energy, combating climate change.
According to the DOE, “collectively U.S. Government agencies are the nation’s largest energy consumer, and they will play a major role in the U.S. meeting President Biden’s ambitious climate and clean energy goals,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “By leveraging the significant investments in President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, the Federal Government will lead by example, showing that everyone from homeowners to huge factories can conserve energy, switch to cleaner sources, and save taxpayers money.”
