The Global Clean-Energy Race


Gernot Wagner, Climate economist, Columbia Business School

Date & Time

December 05, 2022, 12:00 PM EST


While no legislation is perfect, the US Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will be a game changer for the transition to clean-energy sources, both in America and around the world. By doubling down on forward-looking industrial policy, the US is suddenly poised to give Europe, China, and others a run for their money.

In this ASciNA talk, Gernot Wagner will discuss the global implications of the clean-energy race, the opportunities, and the pitfalls.
