Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and the American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC) announce the sixth annual Architecture at Zero competition for zero net energy (ZNE) building designs.
Partnering with San Francisco State University, this year’s competition challenges students and professionals worldwide to develop designs for undergraduate student housing that are ZNE buildings. These structures produce as much clean energy as used during a year through a combination of energy efficiency and on-site renewable energy generation. Winners will be chosen by a panel of international experts and are awarded up to $25,000 in total prizes.
“PG&E is proud to sponsor Architecture at Zero for the sixth year in a row. This competition showcases the zero net energy designs available today that drive energy efficiency in our local communities and build towards California’s clean energy future,” said Vincent Davis, PG&E's Senior Director of Energy Efficiency Programs, Policy and Strategy.
Competition entries are due by October 28, 2016 and will be juried by a panel of international experts including Paul Torcellini, Principal Engineer, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Gregg Ander, President of Gregg D. Ander, LLC; Allison Williams, FAIA, AECOM, and others to be confirmed.
