This panel will explore current trends in energy finance, including a discussion by the panelists of some of the priorities, objectives, and goals that are impacting the development and financing of energy and specifically renewable energy projects by municipal issuers.
We will focus on the impact of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which makes federal cash subsidies available to local governments for the construction of renewable energy projects, and provide some examples of the potential cost savings that can be realized for these projects as a result of the IRA. This panel will also discuss some of the challenges that exist as power supply markets transition to cleaner energy sources, including a discussion of the challenges of building new nuclear generation. Finally, this panel will discuss the use of prepayment transactions as another tool that some municipal utilities are using to help manage the costs of providing electricity and to avoid increasing rates.
