Private Investment Will Make Or Break The Inflation Act

  • Many are hailing the spending side of the Inflation Reduction Act as a catalyst for real change in climate-related investment and even see positives for fossil fuels.
  • The funding in the bill is spread widely and targets communities and projects – attracting third-party capital will be critical to achieving many goals.
  • CCS is straightforward: the increase in 45Q should get private investment going – other aspects of transition carry risks that may be too high for some investors.
  • We look at the importance of stimulating investment in materials – not just energy and note that we have already seen some prices bounce – like copper.
  • Otherwise, we look at why R-PET prices are collapsing, what LyondellBasell might do with its refinery, CCS in Europe, and Bloom Energy 2Q22 results.
