New Publication Showcases Dozens of UC Merced Inventions

Researchers at the University of California, Merced, have devoted years of hard work to finding solutions to some of the world's most challenging problems.

The campus' Office of Research has released a publication that showcases many of those solutions, from technologies that increase the efficiency of solar energy collectors to medical developments that could limit the reproduction of the hepatitis C virus or the spread of HIV to materials that could improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries.

Cap-and-Trade Trumps Carbon Taxes for Clean Tech Adoption

A cap-and-trade system is more likely than a carbon tax system to trigger the adoption of clean energy technologies, according to a study by Professor Yihsu Chen at the University of California, Merced.

The study — coauthored by Chung-Li Tseng of the University of New South Wales in Australia and published this month in The Energy Journal, a quarterly journal of the International Association for Energy Economics — also found that the volatile pricing of a cap-and-trade system could lead to earlier adoption of clean technology by firms looking to hedge against carbon cost risks.

Global Sustainable Engineering Network to Move to UC Merced

The University of California, Merced, will become the new headquarters of Engineers for a Sustainable World effective July 1, the university announced today.

Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) is a fast-growing, global nonprofit network of about 4,000 students, faculty and professionals dedicated to building a sustainable world for current and future generations by way of collaborative, interdisciplinary engineering projects.
