For Building Support To Achieve Greenhouse Gas Targets From Land Use And Transportation Measures

  • Amount
  • Program
  • Date Awarded

    18 Months
  • Type of Support
The Institute of Transportation at University of California at Davis conducts and disseminates research addressing the challenges of transportation and land use. The Institute would continue to support the implementation of California’s SB 375—the leading example of performance-based transportation planning in the U.S.—by providing two important elements to Metropolitan Planning Organizations and supporting nongovernmental organizations: (1) modeling results for options to reach the emissions targets set for each region for 2020 and 2035 and (2) analysis of, and solutions to, the institutional and financial barriers to implementation. The lessons learned from implementation of SB 375 will be valuable throughout the U.S.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Policy Institute’s work on electrified transportation  
Housed at the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies, the Policy Institute for Energy, Environment, and the Economy conducts research to inform decisions and policies on sustainable transportation, environmental justice, and climate neutrality. Over the duration of this program grant, the Policy Institute will conduct new studies to support regulations of zero-emission commercial trucking fleets, and provide technical expertise in support of low-carbon fuels programs in the U.S. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for the Electric Vehicle Research Center  
This grant supports the work of the Electric Vehicle Research Center at the University of California, Davis. The center collaborates closely with California utilities, automakers, regulators, and other research institutions, such as the Electric Power Research Institute and Argonne National Lab, on research aimed at developing a sustainable market for plug-in vehicles. Its research evaluates the impacts of policies and incentives on consumer purchases, the impacts of consumer driving and charging behavior on the electrical grid, and the role that international collaborations can have on a sustainable and equitable market for EVs in the future. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for California-India Zero Emission Vehicle Policy Collaboration  
This grant support the University of California, Davis to facilitate collaboration between California and India to promote zero-emission vehicles. California’s ZEV program has plenty of lessons to offer to India, and the UC Davis team is ideally placed to do both policy relevant research and to facilitate California-India dialogue on zero emission vehicle requirement policy.
