The Operations Behind Investing and Developing Clean Energy Infrastructure in the US

The Yale Center for Business and the Environment and Yale School of Management are delighted to co-host guest speakers to discuss the operations behind the development of green energy infrastructure in the US. Featuring some of our favorite Yale alumni doing remarkable work in clean energy (Jamie Carlson from SoftBank and Adrian Deveny – Formerly of Senator Schumer’s office). 

The panelists will discuss the first grid scale solar projects in TX that are taking advantage of the new tax incentives in the Inflation Reduction Act for domestic content, while also accessing the tax credits for investing in energy communities.  Folks will really get a first look at how the legislation is reshaping development, investment, supply chains, and corporate strategy.

  • Jaime Carlson, Head of Commercialization at SB Energy, will share experiences as the first to benefit from the IRA's domestic content adder, providing a developer's perspective on clean energy project development.
  • Samantha Sloan, Vice President of Global Policy, Sustainability & Marketing at First Solar, Inc., will discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the only utility-scale module manufacturer in the US before the IRA.
  • Adrian Deveny, known for his integral role in Senator Schumer’s office in crafting the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), will share the journey of US clean energy manufacturing, highlighting the strategies behind the IRA's design to stimulate this sector.
