A decade after President Donald Trump promised to bring the country to a “low-carbon future,” the country will likely do so by 2025.
The U.N. body released new estimates Friday that put U.A.E. emissions at the lowest they’ve been in decades.
The White House’s Environmental Protection Agency released its first climate-change action plan in January, which called for “a phased shift to a clean-energy economy by 2025,” which includes an aggressive investment in renewables and electric cars.
But the EPA said it’s likely to slow or halt that shift over the next two years as it reviews whether to lift the carbon pollution cap.
The agency has also said it will delay a carbon-emissions cap until 2020, and a cap-and-trade program to limit greenhouse gases would be phased out after 2025.
On the other hand, the agency is set to put out a new climate plan this year, with a goal of “reducing greenhouse gas emissions from U.K. power plants by 20 percent by 2030.”
A key part of that plan is an increase in the U.U.S.’s share of renewable energy generation.
That’s going to be key for the U-K.
to reduce its greenhouse gas pollution, as well as the rest of the European Union, the White House said in a press release Friday.
The EPA also said its plan would provide $3.4 billion in funding for energy efficiency and renewable energy, with more than $1 billion available for energy-efficiency projects, $700 million for renewable energy storage and $500 million for energy storage incentives.
The plan would also require all U.D. power companies to purchase an additional 4 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2030, and invest $1.2 billion annually to help states and local governments get the most out of their wind and solar resources.
