IIJA: What’s the hold up? – First take on the Inflation Reduction Act
Two major pieces of legislation authorizing hundreds of billions for climate and clean energy have now passed: IIJA & IRA.
The consensus amongst environmental service providers is that not as much as expected has come from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021. The potential flow of project funding is still regarded as a substantial opportunity in transportation, water/wastewater, electricity grid modernization, electric vehicle infrastructure, remediation, and other project areas.
So what is the holdup? And what are some examples of programs or agencies that are in project mode? These questions and how the new IRA shapes up will be the topics for this month’s panel.
