Tools to help navigate the Inflation Reduction Act
The U.S. renewable energy market is poised for unprecedented growth. The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in August 2022 presents many opportunities for developers and investors. The IRA contains $369 billion in investments to boost clean energy and curb greenhouse gas emissions. One of the biggest wins is the IRA’s long-term extension and expansion of federal tax credits. As a result, the U.S. should accelerate the deployment of wind, solar, energy storage, electrified transportation, and carbon-capture projects. The process and procedural changes, training, calculations, and the effort involved with analyzing which credit can be used for each project can be overwhelming and complex to evaluate correctly.
