In the pages that follow, we share news about research findings, opinion pieces by thought leaders, and news of the policy and technology impacts achieved by the Luskin Center in the 2011-2012 academic year.
Some of these highlights included hosting the Governor’s Conference on Local Renewable Energy Resources, which has helped advance California’s goals for locally generated renewable energy, as well as supporting the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power design the CLEAN LA solar program. As part of our newly expanded Sustainable Mobility Initiative, the Luskin Center also supported implementation of state legislation on electric vehicles. This included Senate Bill 880 that helped remove barriers to installing electric vehicle charging stations in multiunit residential buildings. We were also proud to co-host the Future of Water in Southern California Summit, where leaders articulated a framework for a more self-sufficient water future for the region.
