Energy Trust of Oregon is seeking proposals from qualified individuals with excellent research capabilities and an interest in advancing net-zero-energy buildings in Oregon. The Net Zero Fellowship aims to address potential barriers slowing the widespread adoption of net-zero design and to grow the community constructing these remarkable buildings. Energy Trust may award up to two fellowship grants, not to exceed a total of $50,000, to support research over 12 to 18 months.
Fellowships are open to individuals and companies with a well-defined proposal and a demonstrated ability to deliver. Possible topics may include technical research, policy implications, economic benefits, market barriers and community-based net-zero projects. Applicants must demonstrate why their research is important and clearly explain the value their project will have to Energy Trust’s customers. Energy Trust will select fellows with input from a committee of advisors experienced in sustainable, high-performance and net-zero-energy buildings.
