The Policy Institute is a bold new initiative that supports collaborative engagement at a critical time for decision makers. Governments at every level are under intensifying pressure to promote a healthy, growing economy while simultaneously improving environmental quality, increasing efficiency, diversifying the energy supply, creating greater resiliency to energy disruptions, and responding to climate change-despite shrinking capacity and expertise.
The UC Davis Policy Institute for Energy, Environment and the Economy (Policy Institute) leverages world-class university expertise and engages directly with decision-makers to deliver credible, relevant, and timely information and analysis to inform better energy and environmental policy.
The UC Davis Policy Institute, Institute of Transportation Studies and the Plug-in Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Research Center jointly kicked off a new initiative by convening key leaders from state and city governments to share experiences and discuss challenges and opportunities with zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) markets.
