The Grand Deployment Challenge - How to Get Built all that New Federal Climate Policy Incentivizes

Event Description

Online registration is closed. To register, please email Tram Nguyen at

There is significant market momentum behind decarbonizing the economy, both domestically and globally. And the federal government has passed a series of new laws committing roughly half a trillion dollars to future-proofing the U.S. economy and making good on our country’s climate commitments:

•         CHIPS and Science Act
•         Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA)
•         Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)

As transformative as these new laws are, however, they will only achieve their full potential if we are able to deploy the clean energy technologies and infrastructure these three laws incentivize faster than the historical norm. And yet, there is a growing backlash on elements of the decarbonization solution set that will hamper deployment of clean energy technology and infrastructure—whether it’s solar plants or new transmission lines—at the speed and scale required. Come hear from Rolf Nordstrom, President & CEO of the Great Plains Institute, on how GPI sees this new era of deployment and where new areas of opportunity are emerging.
