STEPS is a multidisciplinary research consortium, part of the Institute of Transportation Studies University of California, Davis. The overarching program goal of STEPS is to:

  • generate new insights about the transitions to a sustainable transportation energy future, and
  • disseminate knowledge to decision-makers in the private sector, governmental agencies, and environmental and academic communities, to foster more informed technology, investment, and policy choices.

Research Areas

STEPS has embarked on a new 2015-2018 Research Program, consisting of four new research areas:

  • Initiating Transitions: 2015-2030
  • Future of Fuels and the Oil and Gas Industry
  • GUSTo: Global Urban Sustainable Transport
  • MAVRIC: Modeling Analysis, Verification, Regulatory and International Compliance

STEPS research continues in four interdisciplinary energy pathways and eight cross-comparative areas.
