Energy Efficiency Center
Support a Clean Energy Future this Give Day!

UC Davis, the most sustainable university in the world, is at the forefront of the energy revolution. We are home to the first university-based energy efficiency center and through our research, education, and outreach we train future leaders in sustainable energy, develop energy solutions, and influence state, national, and international energy policies and practices.

UC Davis Energy is unique and vital to a sustainable future. Your gift, no matter the size, will ensure that our world-renowned community of faculty and staff continue their ground-breaking research and excellence in teaching, our new graduate program in energy leads the nation, and our students have unprecedented opportunities to engage directly in research and hands-on energy experiences, in particular through the International Energy Program and the Solar Decathlon. 

Support students like Payman Alemi: “I learned incredible life lessons from participating in the UC Davis Solar Decathlon project—never had I worked under greater pressure and with more rigid deadlines. And perhaps most notably, my experience helped me get my last TWO jobs! I hope that other students get to experience what I did.”

With your gift we will continue to elevate the impact we are making on realizing our world’s clean energy future.

Together, we add up! That is why Every Aggie Counts.
