Net Zero by 2050. Milestone targets. Reduced use of fossil fuels. How will we meet aggressive climate goals? By changing how we generate, transmit, distribute, and use electricity. And one year out, has the rollout of IRA funding made a difference?

Join us for an EBC Energy Resources webinar that will bring together experts and industry leaders to discuss the changes needed to accomplish the clean energy transition. Topics will include clean transmission, electric vehicles, legislative updates, and the clean energy job market. Additionally, speakers will address what they have observed over the course of the past year with the utilization of the influx of funding from the Inflation Reduction Act – detailing what has actually happened, and what are they forecasting.

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.5 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
