Monday: The American Energy Transformation
Day 1: The industry is going through a historical transformation.
With the Inflation Reduction Act awaiting imminent signature, the clean energy sector is poised for exponential growth. The IRA is estimated to add an additional 525-550 gigawatts of clean power projects built from 2022-2030, which will bring enough clean power online to power every American home by 2030. This represents between $550-$600 billion in capital investments into the U.S. economy and it will mean lower consumer energy prices across the board for Americans with annual average savings around $1,000 per household.
ACPW Day 1 Highlights:
- Senator Tom Carper (D) of Delaware was presented with a Clean Power Champion Award today at the University of Delaware campus.
- Governor of Nevada Steve Sisolak issued statewide proclamation for ACPW.
- CEO Heather Zichal wrote a blog on The American Energy Transformation.
- States and cities across the country, including the State of Iowa & City of Kansas City, issued ACPW proclamations.
