What will the new federal infrastructure and climate laws offer the power industry?
With the passage of both the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the energy transformation in the U.S. will receive a major infusion of dollars in the next 10 years.
The IIJA is a generational investment in renewable energy, hydropower, nuclear, transmission, hydrogen, and carbon capture technologies. The IRA incentivizes domestic manufacturing of clean energy technology and developing technologies such as geothermal, carbon capture, clean hydrogen and biofuels.
In this Megasession, our panelists will discuss both new laws through their expertise in finance, energy planning, generation and delivery and energy industry transformation. Opportunities for alternative technologies like carbon capture, small modular reactors and advanced storage technologies will be identified, along with some of the constraints and conflicts expected to arise as a result of the energy transition.
