The paper from Energy Innovation, a San Francisco-based climate think tank, focused on the clean energy incentives in the sweeping climate measure known as the Inflation Reduction Act.

  • The authors noted that at least four institutions — the research firm Rhodium Group, the think tank Resources for the Future, Princeton University and Energy Innovation have modeled the law's impacts.
  • The four modeling teams generally agree that the United States could reach 73 to 76 percent clean electricity by 2030 and could reduce electricity-sector emissions 67 to 78 percent by 2030 relative to 2005 levels.
