WEBINAR: The New Investment Tax Credit for Waste Heat to Power Projects and Other End of Year Congressional Action to Promote Cogeneration and Clean Manufacturing
Thursday, January 21, 2021 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CDT
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 adopted by Congress includes a 26% Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for “Waste Energy Recovery Property” which converts waste heat to electricity. It also extends the investment tax credit for combined heat and power, continues funding for the DOE’s CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships, and authorizes a number of new programs designed to green the American manufacturing sector. This webinar will dig into what the new ITC for waste heat to power may mean for your business and how to capitalize on it, as well as provide a high level overview of the other clean energy provisions of the Act.
