We find ourselves at the end of the most consequential year in the history of clean power in the United States.
Amidst the unpredictable headwinds, American Clean Power remained ferocious in our advocacy and leadership, delivering historic achievements, including the largest clean energy bill in American history.
Inflation Reduction Act
In the heat of summer 2022, ACP helped make the impossible possible when our tireless advocacy helped pass the largest boost to clean energy in American history: the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The IRA provides the clean energy industry tax certainty for the next decade.
In 2023, we look forward to working alongside our members on IRA implementation. We know implementation is critically important to their business, and in partnership with them, we are leading the industry’s engagement with government stakeholders.
Providing Essential Industry Resources
We also laid the groundwork for the entire industry to advocate effectively across the country. As the industry’s voice, this year ACP:
- Brought 11,000+ attendees together at industry-leading clean energy events from coast-to-coast
- Released almost a dozen proprietary clean power market reports, held a dozen webinars breaking down the findings for members, and created countless resources across all industry topics
- Created best practices for an Energy Transition for All in collaboration with members
- Represented the industry’s voice with 10,000 mentions of ACP across the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, AP, and other major outlets
Matching the Association to the Industry
ACP was incorporated just two years ago, but we already play an instrumental role in advancing American clean energy. For that reason, in 2023 we must continue building a best-in-class association.
After a rigorous CEO search process, our Board of Directors voted unanimously for Jason Grumet to take the helm of ACP in 2023.
As the founder and president of Bipartisan Policy Center, Jason joins ACP with a strong belief that we can build consensus on clean energy issues – even in a divided country.
As 2023 dawns, ACP has the right leader for the right moment.
But it will take continued collaboration to ensure that storage, wind, solar, and transmission are all aligned to do what our workers, our economy, and our climate future demand that we do. With our members help, we can – and we will.
Thank you for your trust in us and tireless support. We couldn’t do what we do without you. Happy holidays.
Onwards to 2023.
