Energy Trust of Oregon: New Buildings Program Incentives and Energy Efficiency resources
Join us during Sustainable Building Week to learn how we’re supporting the design and construction of some of Oregon’s most resilient, high performance and net zero buildings. Whether your project is large or small, Energy Trust offers flexible incentive packages and technical guidance to help your project reach its energy goals.
Hear from senior field staff about inspiring projects with compelling stories. Learn about case studies with common energy savings approaches for numerous commercial building types. Participants will learn about regional energy efficiency incentive offerings to offset upfront costs to owners, encouraging the adoption of high performance and sustainable buildings. Additionally, presenters will highlight Net Zero Fellowship research and grant opportunities. Plus, earn a valuable AIA HSW CEU.
