UCLA and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) entered a partnership to fund research that will move the city to clean local water and clean energy over the next five years. This agreement fosters collaborative research across universities in the LA region designed to achieve LA’s local water and energy goals as well as the aims of the Sustainable LA Grand Challenge. The agreement also establishes a Sustainable LA Research Management Committee co-chaired by Mark Gold (associate vice chancellor for environment and sustainability), Martin Adams (Chief Operating Officer at LADWP), and Nancy Sutley (Chief Sustainability & Economic Development Officer at LADWP). The management committee will determine the annual research agenda, projects, budgets and research teams. Funding is provided by LADWP.
