This CLE webinar will discuss the new and modified renewable energy credits, including an overview of how the credits are structured and the bonus and add-on requirements that are essential to maximizing the value of any credit (i.e., wage and apprenticeship requirements, domestic content requirements, “energy community” bonuses, etc.). In addition, we will provide attendees with an understanding of the rules that impact the transfer of eligible credits, how the transfers will impact a project’s financing structure, and a discussion of strategies to mitigate risks associated with the one-time transfer of eligible credits.


The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (“IRA”) modified and reinstated existing renewable energy credits and enacted new renewable energy credits. The IRA also enacted a novel alternative for monetizing renewable energy credits through the one-time sale and transfer of certain renewable credits for cash under Section 6418 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Listen as our panel discusses new green energy tax incentives and requirements under the IRA, a variety of available credits associated with renewables, options for structuring transfers to third parties, documentation requirements, and other key items that must be considered when purchasing or investing in renewable energy credits.



  1. Overview of impact of the IRA on renewables
  2. Available credits and requirements
  3. Tax credit transfer regime
  4. Financing models amid the IRA


The panel will discuss these and other key issues:

  • Key provisions for renewable tax credits under the IRA
  • Transfers of tax credits to third parties
  • Available financing models in light of the IRA
  • Key considerations and next steps for renewable energy developers, producers, and investors that are considering a purchase or sale of credits
