Big Structural Change: A Mixed-Methods Investigation into the Policy and Politics of Land Use and Transportation Infrastructure in California

  • Principal Investigator Amy Lee
  • University of California, Davis
This research investigates these two crucial components of climate mitigation that have proven to be politically obstinate. Three studies will focus on the context in which land use and transportation policies are created – the "who, what, and why" of political influence – in order to better understand the barriers to and opportunities for policy change.

Integrated Modelling Program and TCO Calculator for Battery-Electric Medium- and Heavy-Duty Truck Deployment in Regional Freight Use-Cases

  • Principal Investigator Caleb Weed
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
This study identifies heavily-trafficked freight truck routes of optimal distances in Georgia and quantifies electrification benefits for fleets operating on these corridors by integrating outputs from MOVES Matrix, the Argonne National Laboratory’s GREET Model, the Georgia Tech Fuel and Emissions Calculator (FEC), and other models into a web-based tool.
