Erica Dunn Joins Net Zero Fellowship Advisory Council5.23.18
The idea for this fellowship was born from the Van Evera Bailey Fellowship that Erica herself received in 2012. That grant allows mid-career architects to make greater contributions to their community and work through research and other funding. During her fellowship, Erica teamed up with Energy Trust of Oregon to research six buildings that had followed through the organization's Path to Net Zero pilot program. Energy Trust was so pleased with the results of Erica’s partnership and research through the Van Evera Bailey grant program that it decided to start a fellowship of its own.
“I love being on the committee because it's an opportunity to stay abreast of the most current issues and challenges facing the design and implementation of net zero energy buildings," Dunn says. "The committee meeting to review the proposals is always a really interesting discussion about what it will take to get us to a regenerative future.”
This is her second year on the panel, and we are honored to have her represent both Green Hammer and other zero energy builders in the state.
