Utilizing Tax Benefits from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)to Advance Your Company's Goals
This presentation is designed to explain how to utilize new and updated tax benefits from the IRA and other tax laws in the energy and building industries. Our presentation will cover how to capture recent 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. In addition, we will cover the tax-exempt, project categories that are now eligible for EPAct tax benefits. We will also discuss other legacy tax incentives available for designers, and how energy companies and building owners can capture these. Our presentation is designed to give attendees a thorough understanding of how to include all these incentives in the calculations of energy and building project ROIs.
