Inflation Reduction Act

Key Contacts

Welcome to Bracewell’s Inflation Reduction Act Resource Center

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) significantly expands the scope and magnitude of federal income tax credits available for energy transition projects — including credits related to carbon sequestration, solar and onshore and offshore wind power generation, energy storage, hydrogen, renewable natural gas, and renewable fuels — and provides new opportunities for monetizing these credits.

Bracewell’s IRA Resource Center includes a collection of the current guidance implementing and interpreting the IRA and thought leadership on the IRA published by Bracewell lawyers, providing energy transition project developers and investors with the latest information and insights.
