Analysis from Clean Air Task Force assesses the four landmark pieces of U.S. climate and clean energy legislation passed in the U.S. since late 2020, a period that straddles multiple presidential administrations. The report showcases how laws that advance a diverse set of climate and clean energy solutions can achieve consensus across diverse constituencies to drive U.S. clean energy innovation forward – despite shifts in political configuration in the White House or in Congress.

The Energy Act of 2020, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021, the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022, and the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, include critical provisions to support a suite of climate solutions, from advanced nuclear to wind and solar, carbon capture and storage, zero-carbon fuels, methane abatement, clean energy manufacturing, zero-carbon technology research, development and deployment, and more.
