This act, amongst others, aims at strongly supporting renewable energies in the USA.The act contains tax incentives and new investments amounting to approx. 787 Billion USD. Thereof, approximately 43 Billion US-Dollars are planned for the new „green energy infrastructure”. The new and longer-termed planning horizon is also of great significance for projects within the field of “renewable energies” as well as advancement of commercial projects.
