Renewables: Has the Inflation Reduction Act accelerated investment into US renewables?

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) provides incentives worth billions of dollars for renewable energy projects, but there are still major obstacles to connecting new sources of energy to the grid in many areas. The process of planning, securing funding, and obtaining permits for transmission capacity is still extremely difficult and has posed a significant barrier to efficiently delivering energy to areas in need at the necessary times. Could 2024 potentially be the first year in which the renewable energy industry experiences the complete effects of the legislation?  In this panel session panellists will review how the IRA is impacting investment into renewable energy projects as they discuss:  

  • How is volatility affecting returns and how can investors navigate the turbulence? 
  • What needs to be done to meet the US Dept of Energy challenge of increasing the buildout of renewable energy capacity in the country?  
  • What are the most lucrative investment opportunities in the renewables sector amidst the current macroeconomic climate? 
  • Reviewing the Inflation Reduction Act, has it accelerated investment into US renewables? What are the challenges?  
  • How does renewable energy production contribute to or hinder energy security?  
  • Has the higher cost of capital from higher interest rates created winners and losers in renewables investment? 
  • Is the threat of anti-circumvention tariffs a significant concern for the sector?
