Clean Economy Works: IRA One-Year Review

One year after the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was signed into law on August 16, 2022, private industry has announced at least 210 major new clean energy and clean vehicle projects across the country, according to E2’s findings. Based on publicly available information from 178 of the 210 announcements that included new jobs and/or investment estimates, if completed the projects would create at minimum 74,181 new jobs and bring in $86.3 billion in private investments.

Automakers and their suppliers are building or expanding 115 electric vehicle or battery plants and related factories in 21 states throughout the country. Solar panel and equipment manufacturers that previously avoided building in America due to high costs and policy uncertainties are now building or expanding nearly 30 factories in 18 states. Electric grid and transmission projects that were stalled for decades are getting restarted. Renewable energy operators are planning more than a dozen new large-scale wind and solar generation projects while at least six new large-scale long-duration energy projects are in development. And companies pioneering new, promising sources of clean energy– from offshore wind to hydrogen to clean steel to next-generation battery technologies – have announced dozens of new projects.
