The Inflation Reduction Act included key incentive programs, such as the Low-Income Communities Bonus Credit Program and the Energy Community Tax Credit Bonus, that sought to spur clean energy development in frontline communities. Our expert panelists will discuss the status of those programs a year and a half in and the current opportunities and challenges for clean energy developers and environmental justice communities. What are the recent trends in developing clean energy projects in environmental justice communities? What difficulties have arisen with new projects, and how can they be overcome? We will discuss these questions and many more. Speakers will address these questions and more.
