Can This California University Create A Zero Emission Vehicle Future?

Zero-emission vehicles’ (ZEV) potential to decarbonize our transportation system may sometimes seem miles away, but the University of California-Davis is doing all it can to prove “objects in mirror are closer than they appear.” UC-Davis helped ZEVs shift into the fast lane last week when it partnered with the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) to help advance vehicle technology, charging infrastructure, and consumer understanding. And the university has good insight to share – it’s not only ranked as the most charging-friendly school in America, but it’s also home to one of the world’s leading sustainable transportation research centers.

China and UC Davis partner to put zero-emission vehicles on fast track

“This agreement is an important milestone in coordinating global efforts to accelerate clean vehicle commercialization,” said Daniel Sperling, director of ITS-Davis. “We are honored to join forces with CATARC, whose important leadership in this area will allow California, the United States and China to promote best practices and policy initiatives that will bring new energy vehicles to market not only in China and the United States, but also around the world.”
