• University of California Center for Energy and Environmental Economics (UC3) – UCSB: Functions as a hub of research excellence in energy and environmental economics, providing resources to bring together outstanding scholars from all of the campuses of the University of California. Although UCE3 has a physical presence at UC Berkeley (UC Energy Institute) and UC Santa Barbara (Bren School), it is intended to serve as a catalyst for the entire UC System.
Current Projects and Collaborations
• UC3 Working Paper Series: Fosters research and collaboration at all University of California campuses in the area of energy and environmental economics. Papers in this series will address new and innovative research in the combined fields of energy and environmental economics.
