Get to Know Griffin
Accelerating energy innovation is proving to be a key driver of decarbonizing the economy and mitigating climate change and may also expand the opportunity set for infrastructure-focused investors. President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (“IRA”) into law on August 16th, 2022. The legislation is projected to raise $737 billion in revenue, require total investments of $437 billion, and reduce the deficit by more than $300 billion.¹ The IRA bill aims to help offset long-term inflationary pressure via targeted spending in clean-energy renewables and decarbonization initiatives over the next decade-plus. In addition, the bill will utilize tax credits and government subsidies to encourage household and commercial renewable energy purchases, clean-energy manufacturing, and decarbonization of domestic industries. As private equity and infrastructure investors digest the impact of the new legislation, we expect electric utilities and clean hydrogen production to be key beneficiaries of an increase in capital deployment. Infrastructure-focused strategies can provide exposure to these tailwinds while being ESG-friendly and more broadly helping to diversify a portfolio, provide a hedge against inflation, and generate attractive long-term risk-adjusted returns.
