The clean energy tax package proposed today by House Ways and Means Committee Democrats is Congress’s best chance to do something meaningful on clean energy and climate change this year. The proposal would provide tax incentives for a host of renewable energy technologies as well as battery storage that is critical to decarbonize our power sector. The package also looks to increase the number of electric vehicles that would qualify for a tax credit, making an important step towards addressing emissions from the transportation sector.

In a proposal put forth on October 17th, MISO – which operates the bulk electric transmission system across the central U.S. – leaned into the undeniable transition towards renewable energy resources, emerging technologies like battery storage, and the growing momentum behind decarbonizing our economy. It’s a marked shift for MISO – one that should be recognized as proactive and forward looking. It’s also essential to ensure a modern grid is ultimately ready to support a clean and reliable electricity supply. Read more >

As calls for action on climate change become even louder across the globe (including here in the U.S.) and the impacts of climate change increasingly threaten our way of life, Congress still has a chance to do something right now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and drive investments in clean energy technologies: extending and expanding tax credits for renewable energy and battery storage. And a new report by Rhodium Group puts some numbers behind this – showing that continued federal tax policy support for clean energy technologies accelerates clean energy deployment and leads to meaningful reductions in carbon emissions.
