Investments For Beginners Archive

Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act), President Obama made the largest single investment in clean energy in history, providing more than $90 billion in strategic clean energy investments and tax incentives to promote job creation and the deployment of low-carbon technologies, and leveraging approximately $150 billion in private and other non-federal capital for clean energy investments.

Clean energy investments made up over one eighth of total Recovery Act spending and provided a meaningful boost to economic output. A new report released today by the White House Council of Economic Advisors (CEA) estimates that the entire Recovery Act raised the level of GDP by between 2 and 3 percent from late 2009 through mid-2011. In addition to providing a stimulus, the funding helped address market failures in clean energy markets. The funding reached nearly every aspect of the value chain for numerous key clean energy technologies, including advanced vehicles, batteries, carbon capture and sequestration, and technologies to enhance energy efficiency. These investments were a down payment toward an innovative sustainable 21st century clean economy and helped the country take a large step forward to reducing fossil fuel consumption and reducing carbon pollution.

The Recovery Act increased our capacity to manufacture wind turbines, electric vehicles, batteries, and other clean energy components domestically. The Recovery Act authorized a 30-percent tax credit for investments in more than 180 advanced energy manufacturing projects provided $2.3 billion for renewable energy generation, energy storage, advanced transmission, energy conservation, renewable fuel refining or blending, plug-in vehicles, and carbon capture and storage. The funding helped support a dramatic increase in the share of domestically-produced wind turbine components used in the United States from 25 percent in 2006-2007 to 72 percent in 2012. Recovery Act funds were also critical to setting the foundation for the plug-in electric vehicle market by accelerating the development of advanced battery and electric drive component manufacturing plants in America. A few examples of manufacturing companies supported through the Recovery Act include:

The Recovery Act made unprecedented investments in renewable generation, contributing to the largest growth in installation of wind turbines, solar panels, and other renewable energy sources in U.S. history. The Section 1603 Payments-In Lieu-Of-Tax-Credits program, which began with the Recovery Act, provided nearly $25 billion in funding to support the installation of more than 104,000 wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass projects with the power to provide more than 33 gigawatts of power, enough to power more than 8 million homes each year. Additionally, the Recovery Act extended an existing 2 cents per kilowatt-hour (in 2008 dollars) production tax credit for wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric generation and a 1 cent per kilowatt-hour production tax credit for biomass and landfill gas, which was extended for wind another five years last year.

The Recovery Act promoted energy efficiency through investments that reduce energy consumption in many sectors of the economy, including nearly $5 billion for the Weatherization Assistance Program which funded energy efficiency retrofits in low-income homes. In addition to WAP, efficiency efforts from the Recovery Act supported the installation of 200,000 energy efficient streetlights and 280,000 traffic signals across the country.

In addition to supporting a domestic manufacturing capability for advanced batteries and electric drive components, the Recovery Act funded research, development, demonstration, and deployment of a broad portfolio of clean and efficient alternative fuel vehicles and fueling infrastructure. ARRA directed $6 billion toward programs to promote research on and deployment of the next generation of automobile batteries, advanced biofuels, plug-in hybrids, and all-electric vehicles, and the infrastructure needed to support operationalizing these technologies. These pivotal investments have positioned the United States as a global leader in transportation innovations. Today, 16 manufacturers offer 28 electric vehicle models, presenting consumers with real choices as they look to adopt new technology, enhancing the competitive position of U.S. industry, driving job creation through American innovation, and increasing the number of electric vehicles on the road to 400,000 in 2015. Recovery Act investments also helped lay the groundwork for a transition to a cleaner and more energy efficient transportation system with over $18 billion initially allocated towards cleaner transportation. This investment supported public transit with purchase of 12,000 buses, vans, and rail vehicles, the construction or renovation of over 850 transit facilities, 49 high-speed rail projects, 98 percent of which are either complete or with construction underway. A few examples include:

Chapter Eleven of the North American Free Trade Agreement (the "NAFTA") contains provisions designed to protect cross-border investors and facilitate the settlement of investment disputes. For example, each NAFTA Party must accord investors from the other NAFTA Parties national (i.e. non-discriminatory) treatment and may not expropriate investments of those investors except in accordance with international law. Chapter Eleven permits an investor of one NAFTA Party to seek money damages for measures of one of the other NAFTA Parties that allegedly violate those and other provisions of Chapter Eleven. Investors may initiate an arbitration against the NAFTA Party under the Arbitration Rules of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law ("UNCITRAL Rules") or the Arbitration (Additional Facility) Rules of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes ("ICSID Additional Facility Rules"). 041b061a72
