The US Inflation Reduction Act

On 16 August 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) entered into force with President Biden’s signature. This American legislative package is seeking to build a new clean energy economy by investing USD 370 billion in green energy through numerous tax incentives, grants and loans, accelerating private investments and reducing energy costs for American families and businesses. Furthermore, the IRA is strengthening the supply chain in every part of the US – all the way from critical minerals to efficient electric appliances.
