Passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on November 19, 2021, the Build Back Better Act (H.R. 5376) contains over $500 billion in tax credits, grants, rebates, and other policies to deploy clean electricity, electric vehicles, building electrification and efficiency, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, and low-carbon transportation fuels. The bill also funds agricultural practices that could sequester carbon in soils, provides funding to fight wildfires and protect forests, and imposes a fee on upstream emissions of methane in oil and gas sectors.
