Stimulus package to boost green economy
on Monday,February 02,2009 21:02
Green ideas have already penetrated many industries, and the newly passed stimulus package is expected to provide billions of dollars to promote green technologies and spur job creation.
Among the provisions of the stimulus package passed by the House of Representatives last week are $2 billion for the Energy Department for research and development as well as $8.4 billion for energy efficiency and renewable energy grants and loans for states, block grants, universities, public schools, local governments and municipal utilities.
Industries in which green trends are increasingly important include architecture and design, where demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions has been steadily growing and is projected to continue that way.
Many recent contests and major architectural projects have featured recycled materials, blueprints for zero-emissions buildings, as well as provisions for clean energy utilization.
