Register for the hybrid event here.
Nearly one year has passed since the start of the war against Ukraine. Energy security concerns have accelerated the interest in reshoring clean energy technology manufacturing.
The United States is now solidifying the foundation of an industrial policy. President Biden has repeatedly invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA) to accelerate the manufacturing of clean energy technology, and Congress has passed the bipartisan infrastructure law, the CHIPS and Science Act, as well as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
The industrial policy is an issue that both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party can work on in the next Congress.
But what further policies and institutional support are needed for the development of a US industrial base? What industrial policies are needed to ensure the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has the impact needed for a sustainable development? Domestic and international aspects of supporting industrial and supply chain development are central to this issue.
E3G is partnering with Employ America to co-host an event following the midterm elections and the start to IRA implementation. This event will highlight the bipartisan opportunities and flush out needed institutional reforms to develop an industrial base.
