Understanding the Role of Transportation in Meeting California’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Target: a Focus on Technology Forcing Policies, Interactions With the Electric Sector and Mitigation Costs

The California TIMES (CA-TIMES) is an energy economic optimization model that is being developed at University of California, Davis (UC Davis) to study how California can meet its stringent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions target in 2050. The focus of the CA-TIMES is on identifying optimal and feasible pathways that can potentially be used to achieve the GHG reduction target by 2050. The overarching goal of this dissertation is to learn about the future options and policies for a low carbon energy system and transportation sector. Chapters include: Energy system modeling; Cost-effectiveness of mitigation options in California; Impacts of technology, forcing policies using endogenous technology learning; and Modeling the impacts of deep decarbonization in California and the Western US - focus on the transportation and electricity sectors.
