Atlantic Council – The GHG Reduction Fund in the IRA
Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center virtually, on Monday, September 26, from 4:00 – 5:00 pm ET for a discussion on the importance and role of a national green bank in accelerating an equitable transition to a clean energy economy.
Distributing the IRA funding through a national green bank would have many advantages. The national green bank could establish national standards for loans, develop credit enhancement programs, and provide expertise and funding to state and local green banks and Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs) on renewable energy projects. A national green bank could raise additional funds to those provided in the IRA and through interest on and repayment of loans.
During this panel discussion, experts will discuss opportunities for the Biden Administration to successfully build a national green bank and unlock investment to support an equitable and just clean energy future.
