Opportunities to Accelerate Energy Efficiency and Retrofit Programs with BIL and IRA

Since 2020, the federal government has passed historic legislation geared at reducing emissions from the building sector and enabling access to the benefits of electrification. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provides funding to the Department of Energy (U.S. DOE) for clean energy programs in workforce development, weatherization and energy efficiency home upgrades, and clean energy. Additionally, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) sets the United States on course to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2030. Both BIL and IRA make significant investments in energy efficiency and weatherization programs and can play a key role in streamlining and expanding the adoption of weatherization and energy efficiency programs across the region. NEEP outlines available funding and recommendations to help states both understand and utilize the funding to increase adoption of electrification benefits and grow existing programs.
