Taking Stock 2023: US Emissions Projections after the Inflation Reduction Act

By Ben King, Hannah Kolus and Others

Every year, Rhodium Group provides an independent projection of future US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, under current policy and expectations for economic growth, future fossil fuel prices, and clean energy cost and performance trends. This year, the ninth edition of our annual Taking Stock report, the current policy baseline we model includes something different than the last eight reports: meaningful congressional action on climate change in the form of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). We’ve quantified the effect of the IRA in previous work, but this is the first time major federal climate legislation is incorporated into Taking Stock.
