Renewable Energy Working Group
About the Group
Novogradac’s Renewable Energy Working Group (RE) Working Group is led by Novogradac professionals who are focused on the renewable energy industry and have a thorough understanding of how tax-credit-financed transactions work. This knowledge and experience allows us to advise and guide various types of clients, including project developers, tax equity investors, private equity interests and lenders through these complex transactions. With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, the RE Working Group has a scope that includes renewable, clean energy and energy-efficiency tax incentives and aims to address the needs of a wide range of practitioners.
With the passage of the IRA, Novogradac professionals will work to build a consensus around the emerging issues to best address questions from the firm’s clients and provide them with an agreed upon course of action as the navigate the effects of the new legislation. Areas identified for examination include:
- New eligible costs/technologies
- Direct pay
- Solar PTCs
- Global minimum tax
The RE working group is also open to non-Novogradac members including but not limited to attorneys, investors, syndicators, lenders, for-profit and nonprofit developers, sponsors, consultants, and other renewable energy professionals interested in working together to coalesce around solutions to technical renewable energy issues and make the renewable energy tax credit programs more efficient in providing benefits. The RE Working Group provides a platform for renewable energy industry participants who wish to be in the forefront of this industry.

As they consider emerging issues as a result of the passage of the IRA, the working group may also consider input from non-members. To submit input on a renewable energy tax credit topic, please use this link.
