Inflation Reduction Act: Energy Incentives in the Built Environment

  • rsvp required


The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 provides significant incentives for renewable energy technology and domestic investments. Energy efficiency incentives including 179D and 45L were expanded and extended; and you might qualify. During this session we will share how the incentives may impact your investment in clean, renewable energy technology.

Fixed asset planning provides organizations a way to identify deductions and tax credits that maximize cash flow and reduce income tax liability. Opportunities arise when looking at building and building improvement assets that are associated with a building purchase, new construction or renovation. You may qualify for these valuable incentives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss new energy incentives and revitalized energy incentives funded by the act.
  • Identify opportunities to monetize credits.
  • Summarize 179D and 45L qualifications and benefits.
  • Explore new opportunities for tax exempt and government entities.
