Pacific Coast Collaborative Climate and Energy Action Plan Technical Assistance

Mission

The Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC) project’s primary goal is to provide technical assistance to West Coast jurisdictions committed to the Climate and Energy Action Plan (signed by leaders of British Columbia, California, Oregon, and Washington in late 2013). The central focus is to inform climate change efforts with a strong transportation energy component, such as nascent low-carbon fuels or broader carbon emissions policies in Oregon and Washington, and longer-standing efforts in British Columbia and California. Building on UC Davis expertise and research networks within and outside the university, the PCC project provides policy-ready research and analysis, and consultation.Its research team draws on scientific literature as well as lessons learned from climate and energy policies implemented in California to present the best available information relevant on the two main areas of involvement: low-carbon fuels and carbon pricing.
