Next Generation of Clean Electricity Tax Credits

Past Event

June 20, 2019

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Location: U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, First St NE, Washington, DC 20515, Room 203-02 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. Join us on Thursday, June 20th, 2019, as Bloomberg Environment reporter Abby Smith, Dr. Julio Friedmann and Dr. Noah Kaufman discuss this research and the next generation of federal clean electricity tax credits. Topics will include 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. Lunch will be provided. —   Please note: The deadline to register for this event is June 18, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. Due to CVC requirements, no on-site registration will be accepted.
