UC DAVIS RECEIVES $3M FROM ENERGY COMMISSION FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY PROGRAMS
To speed the transfer of renewable-energy advances from research laboratories to homes and industries, the California Energy Commission will award the University of California, Davis, $3 million to coordinate the efforts of four statewide programs.
The new California Renewable Energy Collaborative will become the administrative center for three existing programs focused on biomass, geothermal and wind energy, as well as a new fourth program that will focus on solar energy. Other renewable energy sources, such as hydropower and ocean energy, may be addressed in the future.
GreenRoad, a global pioneer in improving driving behavior, has entered into a sales channel relationship with Fleet Response, a leader in custom designed accident management and safety services. Fleet Response will offer GreenRoad's driving behavior improvement service to its thousands of existing, as well as new, corporate fleet drivers.
