IRA & BIL Implementation
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provide unprecedented opportunities for states to speedily advance clean energy deployment and decarbonize their economies by leveraging federal funding, policies, and technical assistance. CESA's IRA & BIL Implementation Initiative provides states with information, tailored guidance, and opportunities for collaboration to capitalize on billions of dollars in federal clean energy opportunities.
CESA created the 100% Clean Energy Collaborative to assist states (and other entities) that have 100% clean energy goals by providing knowledge-sharing activities and analysis so that together they can address program challenges and opportunities.
The Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership (ESTAP) is a federal-state funding and information sharing project, managed by CESA, that aims to accelerate the deployment of electrical energy storage technologies in the U.S.
Solar power is now the cheapest form of power worldwide, but not all households are able to access it. CESA’s Scaling Up Solar is a wide-ranging initiative to help states bring the financial, environmental, economic, and health benefits of solar to all Americans, regardless of income.
