An Intellectual Hub for the Energy Sector

The Davis Energy Economics Program (DEEP) provides an intellectual hub through which the Davis energy economics community, industry, and policymakers gather and exchange ideas, research, and information on the challenges and opportunities facing today’s energy sector.

DEEP supports economic research on all aspects of the energy industries, spanning fuels markets, energy consumption, electricity regulation and deregulation, vehicle markets, and emissions trading.

DEEP spans several units at UC Davis, including Economics, Agricultural and Resource Economics, Environmental Sciences, and the Institute for Transportation Studies and works to advance California as a long-standing source of innovation and experimentation in the regulation, organization, and technological development of the energy industries.
