Net Energy Design Competition Opens

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 21, 2015

PG&E and the American Institute of Architects, California Council Set to Open Zero Net Energy Design Competition

Fifth Annual Competition Will Award up to $25,000 in Prizes and Supports State Goals for Energy Efficiency

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and the American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC) announce the fifth annual Architecture at Zero competition for zero net energy (ZNE) building design. Open to students and professionals worldwide, the competition engages architecture, engineering and planning experts in the pursuit of designing energy efficient buildings.


This is the fifth year that PG&E has sponsored the Architecture at Zero competition. Contestants will design a ZNE building at a housing site on University of California, San Francisco’s (UCSF) Mission Bay campus. Contestants will have the unique opportunity to design multi-family housing that will be a ZNE structure, which produces as much clean energy as it uses during a year through a combination of energy efficiency and on-site renewable energy generation.



“The Architecture at Zero competition pushes the boundaries with innovative efficiency technologies integrated with beautifully designed buildings that are at the forefront of creating a more sustainable future for our customers,” said Vincent Davis, senior director of Energy Efficiency Programs at PG&E. “We are proud to sponsor this competition and build a better California by giving our customers an exciting view into the home of the future.”
