Webcast on December 9: Renewable Energy Technologies and U.S. Innovation

President-elect Biden’s agenda is likely to include an increased focus on tax incentives directed at investment in renewable energy resources, though gaining congressional support may pose either a challenge or an opportunity for a grand deal. President-elect Biden’s renewable energy tax policy revolves around his stated goal for the United States to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. In support of this goal, he plans to modify and extend renewable energy tax incentives in order to help achieve carbon pollution-free electricity generation by 2035. President-elect Biden’s renewable energy tax policies include restoring the solar investment tax credit and expanding tax incentives for carbon capture, storage and use. If President-elect Biden implements his policies, will they lead to enhanced U.S. innovation? If the Senate remains a Republican majority, what compromises might Republicans seek, and what roadblocks might they impose on Biden’s agenda?

Join our industry panelists to hear more about renewable energy, tax policy and the impact on America-based technologies.

When: Wednesday, December 9 from 1-2 p.m. ET

Andrew S. Levine, Partner and Co-Chair – Environmental, Stradley Ronon
