Inflation Reduction Act and Its Impact on Projects

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is arguably the most important piece of environmental legislation to pass in this lifetime. It offers over $350 billion in federal incentives for clean and renewable energy investments, decarbonization, sustainability investments, energy efficiency, and infrastructure upgrades, but the question remains for many owners, ‘how does this affect my facility?’ Many facility owners have been slow to adopt green energy solutions due to cost and energy demand, but the IRA helps to break down these barriers to entry.

In this session, we’ll break down the IRA so it’s easier to digest and apply to many types of projects. We will also discuss how this legislation has been applied to real-life projects.

Upon completion of this course, the attendee will be able to: 

  1. Explain new legislation and changes to existing legislation that have occurred in federal energy efficiency programs in the past two years. 
  2. Demonstrate how these new programs can be leveraged to enhance the life cycle cost analysis of high-performance and energy-efficient buildings.  
  3. Identify mechanical and electrical strategies that can be applied to high-performance building design that would qualify for these federal programs. 
  4. Illustrate the benefits to building owners including first cost savings, utility savings, maintenance savings, and carbon reduction.
