  • During the Great Recession, the 48C advanced energy manufacturing tax credit spurred investment in American manufacturing facilities right when it was needed most. In the midst of the COVID-19 recession, we need tools like 48C once again to put Americans back to work, strengthen domestic manufacturing, and help in the fight against climate change.

    On December 16, at 10:30 a.m. ET, Third Way, the BlueGreen Alliance, and Environmental Defense Fund co-hosted a webinar on to discuss 48C’s past success and how it can be revived to meet today’s urgent needs. The event features a conversation with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), followed by a panel of experts from industry, labor, and the environmental community.
