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 design best practices. Through May 31, 2018, Energy Trust is accepting proposals from qualified individuals to undertake research as a Net Zero Fellow that will help advance net-zero building. Two grants may be awarded and will not exceed a combined total of $50,000.
