Transferable Tax Credits Desk

Creating liquidity, unlocking capital

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 marked a pivotal step towards accelerating the United States’ transition to cleaner energy sources. Among its key provisions, the Act introduced Transferable Tax Credits, which promise a transformative approach to financing clean energy projects. The Act granted access to billions of dollars, in the form of transferable tax credits to companies investing in renewable energy. These credits can be a significant source of funding for a project and companies can sell them to buyers that will use them to reduce their own tax liabilities.


A new market facing a liquidity challenge

Transferable tax credits should represent a paradigm shift in clean energy financing: a flexible and accessible mechanism for unlocking capital. For sellers, the credits provide a streamlined avenue to monetize tax benefits, while for buyers, they offer access to valuable incentives for clean energy investment and the added advantage of a tax break. 

Bringing buyers and sellers together is a challenge in any market but with new, complex and illiquid assets such as Tax Credits, that challenge is multiplied. As a result, companies have been slow to make use of this nascent market and see the benefits of these Tax Credits, leaving important clean energy projects under-funded.
