The United States government is expected to spend $2 trillion in the fiscal year that begins in March on new projects and research projects that could help boost energy production in the United Kingdom, according to the latest budget proposal from President Donald Trump’s administration.
In the fiscal 2017 budget, the Trump administration plans to spend a total of $1.7 trillion for a range of energy-related projects, including the development of natural gas and coal plants, the expansion of electric grids, the development and deployment of solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydropower and more.
While the Trump budget does not break out the amount of funding, the total number of dollars spent on energy projects in the budget is expected, as it is a continuation of the $1 trillion spent in fiscal 2016.
In total, the United State Department is projected to spend more than $2 billion in the new fiscal year.
“The Trump administration is going to be spending more than twice as much in its first year as it did in fiscal year 2017,” said Jason Pye, a senior energy policy adviser at the Energy Policy Institute.
“They are trying to get the economy going again and to rebuild the economy.”
The budget proposal, which was released on Tuesday, did not include a detailed breakdown of each of the projects, which will need to be approved by Congress.
In addition to the $2-trillion energy projects, the new budget also includes $2 million for a new project to expand the nation’s electric grid.
That would expand transmission and distribution of electricity in the Southeast.
A $2-$3 billion grant to support wind and solar energy projects could help support the region’s development, Pye said.
The $1 billion in funding for the solar energy research initiative is one of the largest outlays in the Trump Administration’s fiscal year, and the White House said it was important to invest in the research because it would help the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other Middle Eastern nations in the energy sector.
The administration also committed to spending $1-trilion for the development, deployment and operation of wind energy.
The budget is the first step in the President’s push to return the United Nations’ climate change accords, which are being renegotiated to include a cap on global carbon emissions.
Under the accord, the U.S. and other countries will have to reduce emissions by 27 percent by 2025 compared with 1990 levels.
The new budget proposes a $2,000 carbon tax for every dollar the United Nation’s Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) is adjusted to keep pace with the rising cost of global energy and to help the U,S.
meet its obligation under the accord to cut its emissions by 28 percent.
The proposed budget also proposes that the United states and other developed nations make significant investments in clean energy technologies.
According to the White White House, the $400 billion in new investments in the sector would help to bring electricity to as many as 1.6 billion people in the U!
States, as well as create jobs and grow the economy.
Trump has made energy development and production a cornerstone of his first term in office, and is expected in a speech later this month to announce a new plan to revive the US. economy, which is expected continue to grow in the years ahead.
“Energy independence is not just about getting the money,” Pye told The Hill.
“It’s about making sure we’re going to make the most of our resources.
We’re going back to what made the United nations great, and it’s going to happen with a clean energy future.”
The U.N. Framework Convention will be updated and renegotiated next year.
