Presentation Title:

Tax Incentives in a Post Covid World


With the recent signing of the Infrastructure Bill into law and potential later passage of the Build Back Better Bill, a myriad of tax incentives for the energy community have opened up. This presentation is designed to explain the impact of new tax legislation and other tax laws on the energy and building industries, including various applicable tax incentives (i.e., Sec 179D, cost segregation, R&D tax credit). Our presentation will cover how to capture new incentives for HVAC systems and other energy efficiency upgrades that significantly reduce the upfront costs of equipment for building owners, and we will explore newly revived incentives for alternative energy generation systems and energy-efficiency upgrades. We will also discuss other legacy tax incentives available for designers, and how energy companies and building owners can capture these. In addition, Covid-related projects will be addressed and how to optimize the use of Covid-relief monies. Our presentation is designed to give attendees a thorough understanding of how to include recent Covid relief monies into their business operations and strategies. Our presentation will give attendees a thorough understanding of how to include all these incentives in the calculations of energy and building project ROIs.
