The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is one of the most significant climate change policy initiatives ever enacted to reduce carbon emissions and have a major impact on the renewable energy industry. In this session, we aim to explore what progress will be made in this sector and how the IRA will impact areas such as biofuels, solar and wind projects, electric vehicles and industrial projects like carbon capture.
This event will be a virtual session via Zoom from 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM EST. Additional details will be provided to registered attendees prior to the session.
