We discuss the latest updates on the Inflation Reduction Act and what companies are doing now to prepare.
Billed as the largest climate legislation in US history, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) includes tax credits, incentives, and other provisions intended to help companies tackle climate change, increase investments in renewable energy, and enhance energy efficiency. 
What are the most common ways that companies are planning to take advantage of the Act? What provisions does the Act have that might benefit companies that are not in the energy industry? Heather Horn was joined by Matt Haskins, PwC principal, to unpack these questions and provide the latest updates on the IRS’ guidance process. 
In this episode, you’ll hear discussion of:
  • 2:45 - The IRA’s key ESG-related provisions
  • 5:35 - Updates on IRS guidance on the IRA
  • 14:05 - Manufacturing investment tax credits and the application process
  • 22:15 - Areas to consider to navigate the IRA effectively
  • 26:40 - How new methods of data modeling allow companies to assess when they may qualify for incentives
  • 32:25 - How the market is contemplating transactions for direct pay and transferable tax credits
