Charge Ahead California is a campaign by the Coalition for Clean Air, Communities for a Better Environment, Environment California / Environment California Research & Policy Center, The Greenlining Institute, and the Natural Resources Defense Council to put one million electric vehicles on California’s roads by 2023 and to ensure that low-income communities, which are disproportionately impacted by air pollution, benefit from the transition to zero tailpipe emissions.

CE-CERT, UCR’s largest research center, investigates new ways to produce energy and fuel from renewable sources, efficiently use electric transportation through advanced vehicles and improve our energy efficiency through smart grid development. This research is part of our Center’s mission and part of UC’s  move to a net zero campus by 2025.
