The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced winners of its fourth annual Race to Zero Student Design Competition, a collegiate competition engaging university students to design zero energy ready homes. A zero energy ready home is a high-performance home that is so energy efficient it can offset all or most of its annual energy consumption with renewable energy. This significantly reduces a home's annual energy costs while improving comfort, health, safety, and durability.
Program helps small businesses to tap into the intellectual and technical resources they need to overcome critical technology challenges for their advanced energy products and gain a global competitive advantage.
The EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards program, which is managed by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), is currently seeking applications
The EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards program funds Ph.D. recipients to conduct applied research in solar energy at universities, national laboratories, and other research facilities of the applicant’s choice. Awardees receive access to unique education and training opportunities, top scientists in their field, and state-of-the-art projects and equipment as they pursue breakthrough solar research. These awards are in technical areas vital to continuing to decrease the cost of solar energy and span physical science, engineering, and the social sciences.
ORISE will select a total of five qualified applicants for two-year performance periods. Those selected will receive an annual stipend, allowances for health insurance and research-related expenses, and limited reimbursement for relocation expenses. Applications for the EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards are due May 31. Learn more and submit your applications today.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today launched the third installment of the "Better Buildings Challenge SWAP," featuring two cities that have already faced off on the national stage this year—Atlanta and Boston.
The U.S. Department of Energy, through the Better Buildings Alliance's Advanced Rooftop Unit Campaign (ARC), is recognizing eight organizations for their energy efficiency leadership in replacing and upgrading rooftop units (RTUs) in commercial buildings.

Upcoming Webinar April 25: Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) Research Efforts Related to Electrolyzers for Grid Services
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar titled "Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) Research Efforts Related to Electrolyzers for Grid Services" on Tuesday, April 25, from 12 to 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Idaho National Lab will introduce DOE's scope and technical approach related to electrolyzers as a controllable load.
A free webinar called “Pitching Your Projects" will take place April 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mountain Time. This webinar is part of the 2017 Expanding Tribal Energy Development Through Partnerships webinar series sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs and the Western Area Power Administration.
The training series provides guidance for turning information from metered data into operational, cost-saving best practices. Course instruction describes opportunities to reduce costs, optimize system performance, and maximize investments using the latest metering standards and analytical methods.
