The U.S. building sector has not increased its energy consumption since 2005 even though we have added over 50 billion square feet (4.7 billion square metres) to our building stock, and today CO2 emissions in the entire sector continue to decline and are down 30% from 2005 levels.
The Biden pledge of a clean electricity grid by 2035 will reduce CO2 emissions in the building sector by at least 65% by 2030, and drive emissions down in other sectors as well.
