The magnitude and long-term availability of the Inflation Reduction Act’s (IRA) tax incentives are game-changing for the clean energy industry. However, they introduce new complexity that could affect ownership structures, financing approaches, and the location of development for renewable energy projects. Join WRI as we consider key issues that cities, corporations, utilities and others should consider in order for them to best take advantage of the tax credits for clean energy projects.

In this panel discussion among experts in finance, law and project development, we will explore the recent proposed guidance issued by the U.S. Treasury Department on elective pay and transferability as well as bonus incentives for energy communities, domestic content, and low-income benefits. The panel discussion will focus on important challenges associated with implementing proposed guidance, and what the new incentives mean for project development in terms of financing, ownership, and technology deployment in coming years.
