The federal clean electricity tax credits that helped propel the rise of solar and wind power will soon expire, and policymakers on both sides of the aisle are proposing new policies to replace them. New research from the Center on Global Energy Policy examines the renewable electricity production and investment tax credits and offers design principles for future clean electricity tax incentives.
The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a discussion with Bloomberg Environment reporter Abby Smith, CGEP Senior Research Scholar Dr. Julio Friedmann and CGEP Research Scholar Dr. Noah Kaufman to discuss this research and the next generation of federal clean electricity tax credits. Topics included general principles for the design of clean electricity tax incentives, the support needed for key technologies, and the role of clean electricity tax credits in addressing climate risks and other public policy concerns.
