The California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA will become a statewide interface for the synthesis, coordination, and communication of sustainable energy systems research. Using the 2011 Sustainable Communities Research Roadmap as a framework, the Center will initiate and disseminate research and development to benefit California. It will assist in producing data, models, methods, tools, and case studies to support the creation of more sustainable, energy-efficient communities. The Center will be a multicampus effort led by UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, with partners at UC Berkeley’s Center for Resource Efficient Communities, UC Davis’ Institute of Transportation Studies and UC Davis Extension’s Land Use & Natural Resources Program. The Center is expected to become a national model and leader in sustainable communities’ research.
