Energy & Buildings
Buildings provide the base for our homes and our businesses. As the pandemic highlighted, having efficient and healthy homes and properties is important. In Miami-Dade County most buildings run on electricity, with a very small percentage that use a combination of electricity and natural gas, a fossil fuel.
In other words, the objective is to make buildings as efficient as possible to avoid energy waste, and then procure the remaining energy for the buildings from solar panels or other renewable sources that do not burn fossil fuels.
To achieve this goal, an aggressive acceleration of energy efficiency in new and existing buildings is needed, along with electrification of buildings, and the rapid expansion of renewable energy installation both on-site and off-site.
