Founded in 2006, the Energy Efficiency Center at UC Davis (EEC) is the leading university center in the world on energy efficiency. The EEC is home to innovative energy efficiency-related research centers, global impact efforts, and collaborators and has more than 45 affiliated faculty. We focus on improving energy use through research, education, and outreach.
