    The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the subsequent Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) have created federal stimulus to accelerate the deployment of alternatives to carbon-emitting generators.  

    This session will provide an overview of the various IIJA and IRA programs for power generators and outline an approach to secure funding.  

    Speakers will answer the following: 

    ·       What are the right grants to apply for?  

    ·       What makes a successful application?  

    ·       What are the compliance requirements to comply with once funding is secured?  

    ·       How does one combine grants with other funding sources to complete investments most efficiently?
