Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Opportunities for School Building Energy Efficiency

Students spend more than 15,000 hours in school buildings throughout their educational careers and are adversely affected by poor building conditions. Designing and building schools to a higher standard and paying special attention to energy-consuming systems, supports better health and learning while also lowering utility bills. Adequate funding to address aging school buildings across the country is necessary. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, signed in November 2021, allocates funding to over 350 programs across many areas of infrastructure, including investments for the country’s public school buildings.
