The Inflation Reduction Act is “bigger, bolder and ultimately more transformative” for the U.S. energy sector than almost any other legislation ever enacted, Tom Starrs, vice president of government and public affairs for EDP Renewables, told attendees of the RE+ conference in Anaheim, California last week.

While the clean energy provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act were many years in the making, the law’s creation “wasn’t a direct path, and it wasn’t inevitable,” said Alexander McDonough, a partner at political consulting group Pioneer Public Affairs.

McDonough encouraged attendees at the convention to tout funding from the act when announcing new projects in the years to come as a means of winning over Americans who remain skeptical of the legislation.
