On August 16, 2022, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law. The IRA creates important incentives for clean energy, vehicles, buildings, manufacturing, and equity-centered environmental investments through a record $369 billion in climate and energy-related spending. EELP will continue to monitor these efforts through legal analyses, comments, podcasts, and our regulatory tracker.
