Impact of the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act for Clean Energy Investment in Canada

January 26, 2023

The U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is a far reaching piece of legislation with a lot of different consequences for clean energy investment in Canada. If Canada doesn’t keep up, there’s a risk that flows of talent and capital could be pulled south of the border but there are also some very real opportunities for our country as well.  Dale Beugin and Marisa Beck from the Canadian Climate Institute will discuss the implications of key provisions in the US legislation for clean energy investment, low carbon transition, automobiles, batteries and construction materials across Canada.

This session has been organized by Jim Whitestone.
