Tax Credits and Tax Credit Insurance for Renewable Energy Projects: Eligibility, Insurability, and Developments Under the Inflation Reduction Act


The Inflation Reduction Act (the “IRA”) represents one of the biggest pieces of green-energy legislation in history. The Bill extends the availability of government-backed tax incentives, in the form of Investment Tax Credits (ITC), Production Tax Credits (PTC) and other tax credit incentives, such as a tax credit for carbon sequestration (45Q). As a result of the IRA, investments in renewable energy projects are expected to continue to grow.
