This CLE webinar will provide energy counsel an in-depth analysis of the U.S. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and its impact on renewable energy. The panel will discuss key provisions of the Act for energy project development, finance, and requirements. The panel will discuss funding opportunities, new tax exemptions, federal standards and requirements, and other key provisions.

Description

There is keen interest in the new U.S. infrastructure bill to provide millions of dollars in clean energy and energy infrastructure. Energy counsel must become aware of key provisions of the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the impact on renewable energy project development, financing, and other key items.

The new infrastructure bill provides opportunities, requirements, and potential liabilities for companies in various industries. As applied to the energy sector, it provides new and expanded funding opportunities for clean energy innovation and project development for carbon capture, emissions, storage, sustainability, and more. Energy counsel, developers, and investors must identify opportunities and take the necessary steps to take advantage of the opportunities.

Although the new bill provides plenty of opportunities for the energy sector, it also includes new permitting, leasing, licensing, and other property rights provisions that energy projects must consider. In addition, new federal standards, reporting requirements, and other challenges are included. They must be considered to maintain compliance and take advantage of the opportunities provided by the new infrastructure bill.

Listen as our panel discusses the infrastructure bill and its impact on renewable energy. The panel will also provide a deep dive into key provisions for funding, new tax exemptions, federal standards and requirements, and other key provisions.
