Inflation Reduction Act

Analysis on Energy and Climate Tax and Credit Provisions

The Inflation Reduction Act (the “Act” or IRA”) is a historic investment in climate policy that touches upon almost every facet of the energy transition in an attempt to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Specifically, the IRA provides for the extension, expansion, and creation of a number of credits, which impact a broad swath of “green” technologies, provides substantial subsidies for standalone storage and hydrogen, incentivizes carbon capture, encourages domestic manufacturing and mining, and promotes the installation of EV charging equipment.

The IRA also provides for significant and unprecedented flexibility for monetizing these credits, making more projects financeable, permitting new market entrants, and allowing for new structures and products to be developed.
