The Inflation Reduction Act could mean many more workers will be needed to fill various clean energy and other jobs in the coming years. The bill also says it will cut carbon emissions by about 40% by 2030.

"The Inflation Reduction Act builds a new clean energy manufacturing economy by investing in refurbishing old factories; building new factories; requiring high wages; and mandating apprenticeship training for companies using clean energy tax credits," the Center for American Progress wrote in a fact sheet.

"The bill will spur domestic production of batteries, solar panels, wind turbines, and more, setting the US up to compete in the global clean energy economy and creating millions of clean energy jobs."

AFL-CIO staff wrote that there will be "an especially big boost to manufacturing." According to Energy Innovation, 1.4 million to 1.5 million jobs in 2030 could be made as a result of the Inflation Reduction Act.

Most of these millions of jobs created would come from grants, loans, and tax credits, according to BlueGreen Alliance who commissioned that analysis.

Axios reported that Philip Jordan, vice president of BW Research, noted that equipment installation and construction will see the biggest job gains.
