The Inflation Reduction Act, the nation's first federal climate policy, has boosted clean energy efforts in the US but faces hurdles in meeting the White House's climate goals. The $385 billion policy promotes innovation in clean energy development and aims to transition the US to a clean energy economy. Private sector investment in clean energy has been spurred, but challenges include lengthy permitting processes for new transmission lines. The US is also working on "friendshoring" global supply chains to reduce reliance on China for clean energy technologies. Workforce development is another challenge for the IRA.
