Researchers designed a new device that uses solar power to inexpensively and efficiently create and store energy and create hydrogen fuel.
The energy-efficient system uses a thin polymer film that transfers heat from the heat source to a “heat sink.”
Those who complete the program will be prepared to fill a critical void in the workforce: helping growing urban centers thrive under the pressure of global climate change.
Chai Energy and UCLA Luskin Center for Innovation are conducting a pilot study that could help consumers monitor their electricity usage and avoid peak pricing.
A UCLA-student–led survey uncovered stark disparities in public health outcomes for L.A. neighborhoods with oil and gas drilling.
Report by UCLA researchers finds that community choice aggregators provide a competitive alternative for electricity consumers.
New state and local policies promoting energy use transparency, public transit funding and sustainable development make researchers are optimistic for improvement.
The first episode features UCLA environmental economist Magali Delmas.
UCLA study shows that certified green buildings save 319 million pounds of carbon emissions in Los Angeles per year. Unfortunately, smaller buildings are left behind.
To counter likely cuts in federal funding for research into climate change and energy innovation, California’s government must fill the gap.
Michael Ross, professor of political science at UCLA, spent the past four years studying fossil fuel policies across 157 countries. The analysis was published in Nature Energy.
Modifying the structure of molybdenum trioxide could lead to laptop computers that fully charge in minutes, last for hours.
Economist Jerry Nickelsburg on how not leveraging the windfall of abundant natural resources into investments into education and infrastructure limits economic growth.
UCLA researchers note that the next decade shows great promise for things like improving food safety, fighting infections, storing energy and supplying clean energy.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz spoke with UCLA leaders and researchers in engineering and physics this morning and toured two laboratories on campus that receive support from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Magali Delmas, an environmental economist at UCLA, has been focusing on finding the most effective strategies to motivate people to change their behavior and conserve electricity.
President Obama announced a $70 million award today to a nonprofit co-founded by UCLA to create a nationwide Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute.
The L.A. Energy Atlas project, a first-of-its-kind interactive website, enables policymakers and the public to sort energy consumption and emissions by building size, neighborhood and other metrics.
Mary Nichols, chair of the California Air Resources Board and a UCLA faculty member, is a fierce fighter for the environment. She has championed a difficult cause without succumbing to bitterness or wallowing in the polarization that has crippled Sacramento and Washington.
During a launch event for the new issue, editor-in-chief Jim Newton spoke to Mary Nichols, whose work as an environmental advocate is profiled in the magazine.
U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall met Tuesday with stakeholders from across the energy ecosystem at UCLA’s Kerckhoff Hall to discuss how Los Angeles can meet its energy goals.
Measures put in place by the state have mitigated financial impacts that could be expected as costs passed along to electricity, natural gas and gasoline consumers.
While the experts agreed on the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they sharply divided on how to achieve that goal at a recent discussion sponsored by the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.
Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited and researchers at UCLA have reached an agreement to develop advanced technologies for delivering energy more efficiently, less expensively and to more people in India and beyond.
The UCLA Sustainable LA Grand Challenge’s first competitive research grants will go to 11 projects, ranging from developing lightweight solar panels that double as batteries to studying the costs of algae-based biofuels.
