On Tuesday this week President Biden signed into the law the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. This bill is the result of years of work by clean energy businesses, advocates, nonprofits, and government agencies to pass legislation that is expected to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030.
Today the United States House of Representatives passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 – sending the bill to President Biden’s desk for signing. The bill includes $370 billion for significant investments in clean energy technologies that are also slated to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030.
The combined investments in the $370 billion Inflation Reduction Act puts the U.S. on a path to roughly 40% emissions reduction by 2030, and represents the single biggest climate investment in U.S. history, by far.
