Announcing our 2017 Net Zero Fellow: Brightworks Sustainability

Energy Trust’s Net Zero Fellowship was created to support research that advances net-zero building design in Oregon. These thoughtfully planned buildings are often seen as too expensive to be feasible. Our Net Zero Fellowship winner, Brightworks Sustainability’s Shilpa Surana, wants to change that perception.

As lead energy analyst and modeler, Surana seeks to find the most cost-effective and technically feasible way to reach net zero. Specifically, Brightworks Sustainability will look at midrise multifamily buildings and low- to midrise office buildings. Research results will be available in 12 to 18 months.
