In April, Energy Trust announced the 2019 Net Zero Fellowship grant to support net-zero energy building research. To assist in selecting the grant recipient, Energy Trust has assembled a Net Zero Advisory Panel comprised of leaders in a variety of commercial new construction industry sectors. The panel members are:
|Mark Perepelitza||SERA Architects|
|Clayton Crowhurst||Northwest Housing Alternatives|
|Scott Nyseth||Stonewood Structural Engineers|
|Erica Dunn||Green Hammer|
|Marc Brune||PAE Consulting Engineers|
|Shilpa Surana||Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance|
|Andrea Caudill||Port of Portland|
|Chris Perry||American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy|
|Bing Liu||Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance|
|Ralph DiNola||New Buildings Institute|
|Jessica Rose Iplikci||Energy Trust|
|Jeni Hall||Energy Trust|
Here in Oregon, net-zero buildings have gained notable market traction for early design and implementation, yet widespread adoption will require new research to advance best practices in design. Later in the summer, Energy Trust will announce the next individual who will be awarded one grant up to $50,000 to undertake research as a Net Zero Fellow to help advance net-zero building.
