Discussing the Inflation Reduction Act

Monday, September 26, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In less than a year, Congress passed three statutes with about a half-trillion dollars in funding for clean energy: the infrastructure bill, the CHIPS act, and IRA. They add up to a comprehensive strategy for the energy transition — covering the full cycle of technology development from lab bench to deployment at a national scale while encompassing the entire energy ecosystem from generation to end use. These laws will supercharge efforts to accelerate climate initiatives in California and nationally.
 
The IRA in particular provides a wide range of subsidies for clean energy development and deployment, and decarbonization efforts. This approach has the potential to not just kick-start technological advancements and cost reductions for clean energy, but also to advance future political and policy efforts toward decarbonization.
