Press Briefing: How To Cover the Inflation Reduction Act's Roll-Out

Event Date: 
March 16, 2023

President Joe Biden’s signature climate legislation, the Inflation Reduction Act, promises to reduce carbon emissions by more than 32% over the next 10 years. The legislation aims to create millions of clean energy jobs and loan millions to fund clean energy projects, with 40% of its funding benefiting disadvantaged communities. Covering the IRA’s roll-out is an opportunity for newsrooms to examine how well these promises are met in practice. Join Covering Climate Now and three leading experts for a one-hour discussion about the bill's roll-out.


  • Lori Lodes, Executive Director of Climate Power
  • Jigar Shah, Director of the Department of Energy's Loan Programs Office
