NextSTEPS About Image

NextSTEPS is a four-year (2011-2014) multidisciplinary research consortium, part of the Institute of Transportation Studies University of California, Davis. The overarching program goal of NextSTEPS is to:

  • generate new insights about the transitions to a sustainable transportation energy future, and
  • disseminate that knowledge to decision-makers in the private sector and governmental agencies so that they can make informed technology, investment, and policy choices.

Research Subject Areas

The Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways research program is focused on understanding the potential transition to an alternative fueled transportation solution. The research is segmented into four interdisciplinary research pathways and six cross-comparison subject areas that investigate different aspects of utilizing alternative fuels (listed below).

  Hydrogen
  Biofuels
  Electricity
  Fossil Fuels
