Be the next Net Zero Fellow

We need your help building a net-zero future and are now seeking qualified applicants for our annual Net Zero Fellowship. Energy Trust awards up to two grants annually, not exceeding $60,000 each, for a 12-month research project that advances the adoption of net-zero design and construction in Oregon or Washington.

We’re proud to support the innovative people who make net-zero buildings possible, from current industry professionals to the leaders of tomorrow. Individuals or firms in the fields of community development, urban planning, architecture, engineering, construction, facility management, public policy or academia are encouraged to apply. We support topics that examine multiple facets of net-zero design and construction, especially around how building professionals make decisions and how communities benefit.

Submit your application by May 3, 2024.

Want to know more or have a net-zero idea to discuss? Join us for a virtual informational session on March 14 to learn more about the fellowship requirements and hear from previous fellows about their experiences.

Virtual informational discussion and Q&A: March 14, 10 – 11 a.m.
