Former Vice President Joe Biden announced a plan to reinvent the nation’s infrastructure and energy sector to address climate change and boost the economy. The proposal from the presumptive presidential nominee, which aims to achieve a carbon-free society by 2035, also includes the upgrades of housing and buildings.
Specifically, Biden is looking to build 1.5 million energy-efficient homes and public-housing units. Among other subjects, Biden is also seeking to kickstart the U.S. auto industry through incentives for automakers to produce zero-emission electric vehicles.
With health, wellness, and sustainability becoming an imminent topic as we ride out the pandemic, the conversation of a greener future within the housing sector is one that’s certainly happening.
