Will The US Get Left Behind In The Race for Electric Vehicles?!



In August 2022, President Joe Biden passed the Inflation Reduction Act (aka IRA) into law earmarking a staggering $369 billion dollars for emissions cutting measures. The extensive incentives, such as $7500 worth of tax rebates for new EVs, millions of investment for domestic battery assembly and raw material sourcing mean that over the past year the IRA has had the effect of altering the tectonic plates of clean energy transition geopolitics. In this episode we explore, through the medium of cake (yes, really cake) the impact it's having on supply chains, how China, Europe and Car companies have responded and whether it's enough to make a dent in the US' emissions. Enjoy this whistle stop tour!
