On August 16, 2022, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law, directing a record $370 billion toward clean energy investments.

Yesterday, the White House released a 182-page guidebook to the IRA entitled Building a Clean Economy.  John Podesta, Senior Advisor to the President for Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation, explains in his introduction that the guidebook “provides a program-by-program overview of the Inflation Reduction Act, including who is eligible to apply for funding and for what purposes.”  In the coming weeks and months, the Administration will provide further updates on www.CleanEnergy.gov.

See here for our post providing an overview of the major energy provisions in the IRA.
