The U.S. Department of the Treasury and IRS on Nov. 17, 2023, released long-awaited proposed regulations regarding the investment tax credit (ITC) under Section 48 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The proposed regulations provide critical guidance on long-standing technologies incentivized under Section 48, including solar, wind, biomass and geothermal, as well as newer technologies added to Section 48 by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, including offshore wind transmission lines, energy storage and qualified biogas property. Regulations were last issued under Section 48 in 1987.
