DOE Race to Zero Competition

Hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Race to Zero student design competition challenges and inspires the next generation of building science professionals to design an affordable, net zero energy home that meets DOE’s Zero Energy Ready Home guidelines.

Penn State has participated in this competition since it began in 2014 (then called the DOE Challenge Home competition).

Check out the links to the right to read more about Penn State's submissions.
